  • What a wonderful experience! Bob Young, Gobblers Knob Volunteer Tour Guide was fantastic. It was nice to hear the history of the Groundhog tradition. Afterwards we took pictures, signed Bob's guestbook, received an official Ambassador card, and coin. My daughter also got to pick a bookmark with Phil's picture on it. What an asset Bob is to the whole experience.
  • GROUNDHOG DAY REVIEW If your a fan of the movie, you must visit this place on Feb 2. They put on a great traditional show. Only downfall is there is no warming center, no place to get hot chocolate, and the once its done they need to better organize getting all the people back to their cars. After standing in the cold for hours, and trying to disperse thousands of people in school buses with no heat was horrible. I literally stood for 2 hours waiting to get on a school bus. in fact many children were crying because it was so cold. As a tourist, not familiar with the area, their processes and for the reasons above means i will never go back. They need to better organize the event or at least have a stand for hot chocolate.
  • It was fun to see this in person. There's a nice trail in the woods with statues and Phil Facts. We were fortunate enough to have Bob Young, a volunteer tour guide, show up as we were leaving. He enlightened us on many facts and a much deeper history that we didn't know. Thanks, Bob!
  • On this cold Monday afternoon Bob, a volunteer, took the time to explain the history of ground hog day. Very interesting and entertaining. And yes, we believe in Phil!!
  • It's where Punxsutawney Phil makes his yearly prognostications around whether winter will continue for six more weeks or not - what's not to like?
