"They're getting bigger,” said Anderson. “More people are coming."

"With the kids and the dogs and enjoying all the company and bath lake,” said Anderson. “It's really a nice time."

"It gives us a lot of notoriety,” said Cope. “Even beyond the bounds of Oklahoma we get people coming here inquiring about it and then being part of it."
