    The downside was several people had called out and one tram wasn't working, but luckily for us a couple more workers showed up. We have mobility issues and would have needed to walk the area ourselves...  more »

    This is a very interesting place to stop while in Freeport. It's a real commentary on ecology and geology! Our tram driver/tour guide was amazing! An off the beaten path stop.  more »

    I arrived around 7pm to book for a tent spot. The owner was nice and easy to talk to. Hot shower, laundry and clean bathrooms were available. The desert was marked easily for a tour or hiking. Reason for 4* because my spot were down a deep hill and my car almost got stuck trying to park. Also the cost for 1 person tent 1 night was $31.61. I think $20 to $25 would be more reasonable.

    Very nice people and our woodsy tent site was so peaceful! We only stopped for the night on our way to somewhere else but there was enough there that we were tempted to stay and explore the area. The place feels nice and isolated but is very close to the highway and easy to find. Would stay again. =)

    Maine cheese - cheesy cheese. This is a good example of poor land management/soil erosion ranging from previous centuries. The fact that this has been a tourist stop (trap) from the 1920s is curious. I liked the pole barn from the 1700s

    This is for real. Way larger than I thought. Do the tour, it's cheap and interesting
