  • UFO Watchtower had appeared on TripAdvisor as I planned this trip. Unfortunately, the attraction was closed on this Thursday morning in October. We viewed the Watchtower from the road and driveway and...  more »
  • Curiosities always get our attention. Price of admission is worth it. Interesting artifacts and oddities abound.

  • Look, I'm sure the folks that made this mean well, and its doing no one any harm but I was deeply underwhelmed by this place. For starters, there is no tower, there is a one story, one room domed concrete building with a scaffold on top. Standing at roof level of a one story building does not qualify as a "tower" of any kind. When we stopped by the building/shop and scaffold were closed. There is a kind of junk garden outside the "tower" where you can find some home spun alien art/sculpture and a "garden" of personal items left by visitors. Leave an item, make a wish, and the "entities" that guard the place will help you in some way. Frankly it looked like a lot of trash though reading the explanation put it in some context and I could appreciate it a bit more. Looking around carefully it became interesting to see what people left of themselves. The art felt kind of haphazard and without much effort/love put into it. Hey its a big satellite dish, let's prop it up and paint two eyes on it, presto its an alien now! That was one of the nicer "sculptures". On arriving a sign tells you, "If you are reading this you are on private property and are obliged to pay us $2." I scrounged up what change I had on hand and put it in the box but it felt kind of rude to advertise the place by the road and then demand money just for being on premises when all I can really do is look at the objects other travelers leave behind.
  • My wife and I had a lot of fun. The surrounding view is great. The collection of things is cool. Don't forget to bring something to leave in the ufo garden... such as sunglasses, license plates, pens, Id's, etc.
  • If you're driving by make the stop. This is a unique little place with a lot to see. No one was manning the watchtower when I was there -may add to your experience. There's a campsite too!
  • Way cool place! Great spot to camp for a good price. Nice dark sky at night.
  • Should be on everyone's bucket list ~ fabulous and mind blowing
