Dear Clarke Family,
As manager of the Happy-Go-Lucky National Park here in the great state of California, let me be the first to welcome you! I just wanted to take this opportunity to tell about what we have to offer your family here. First off, the park is open 24/7 so you may come and go as you wish. All we ask is that you respect the other campers who are also here to enjoy the natural beauty. We also kindly ask that no matter what, you mustn’t stray from any of the clearly marked trails and that you mustn’t walk them alone. Even though, we are a park, we have had reports of a few animal attacks in the area. You may take part in a variety of sports and activities whilst you are here. Please follow the safety and park maintenance rules so you and others to come will have a most enjoyable time here at Happy-Go-Lucky.
