    There are hate signs all over. The iron railings on the outside of the place have no safety features. Kids were allowed to climb to the top on this outside stairway with no safety protection and it is...  more »

    We found Bishop Castle purely by accident and WOW, just WOW!!! This is the most amazing one man creation we have ever seen. The owner has been building it for many years, and it is still a work in pro...  more »

    Everything about this place is fascinating! You can climb all the way up to the 160 foot spire if you'd like, at your own risk, of course! Nothing like it anywhere, and demonstrates skill, genius, and...  more »

    Love this castle. So worth the stop. Everything here is at your own risk. A lot of climbing involved with narrow passages and steep stairs. You will get a work out but it is worth it to reach the top. Admission is free but your donation helps. There is a little gift shop. Make a stop here and see what one man can do.

    What an amazing place! Had a chance to actually meet Jim Bishop, very amazing man with a unique view of the world. Definitely worth the trip. Climb at your own risk. Absolutely recommend going and seeing this one of a kind place. Make sure that you read all the signs and stop by the gift shop.

    Impressive. Worth the drive to go see it. But, as others have commented, safety should be a concern for every visitor. The castle is still an active construction zone, so watch your step. (hence only 4 stars) It's amazing to think one man built this by himself.

    Wonderful off-the-beaten-path destination. I wasn't prepared for a gift shop, but they do have one! :) The castle is a true labor of love and is very charming! So glad we made the trip.

    We went to see the bishop castle at 5:15 and the gate was locked. Very shocked to learn that it is not owned by Jim and his wife and some friend they trusted cheated them by signing the deed over to him. Need to check Internet to read the whole story need to check
