  • Gobler's knob is a couple miles uphill from town so don't expect to walk there in February like in the movie. In fact, none of the movie was filmed in Punxsutawney PA. But once you get over that disap...  more »
  • Its a place of historic proportions on Groundhog Day. Every other day of the year its a field and Phil doesn't even live in it. .I can say ive been there at least, even if it wasn't on the big Day.  more »

  • Fun place to visit. Obviously limited activities. Mostly photo opportunity. The trail is nice. Location is open during daylight hours.
  • 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's where Phil gives his famous prognostications every February 2!
  • 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!!
