Bishop Castle Reviews
To realize that this man built this with his own hands is amazing. The views are also fantastic. He is apparently in his 80's now and while I was there he was not there for health reasons and I do hop... more »
Finding this structure in the mountains of Colorado in a place never expected is like coming into a fairy tale. Built from local stones gathered and assembled by one person who has often times been pr... more »
As the title says, this is one of the most amazing places I've ever been, and we found it by mistake. It's amazing where unexpected detours can take you. Entirely built by one man over the course of 4... more »
This place is so quirky cool that it’s a must see. I’ve never been to anything like this. It’s completely private which adds to the drama as you scale the iron rod scaffolding all across the exterior of the building. Why, because you have to trust that it was built to sustain the traffic this place gets. Don’t get me wrong. This place can be plenty dangerous if you’re not careful. And I would be mindful of your kids. My kids and I enjoyed the adventure. This is definitely not for the faint of heart. But again, a must see.
One of the quirkiest places I've ever been to. Enter the castle at your own risk, sign the guestbook as a liability waiver! We absolutely loved exploring all the nooks of this place. Worth the time to stop! There are donation boxes throughout the site to contribute to this amazing structure!
Awesome place to stop and explore. The kiddos loved it. A little scary up top as it shakes some. Definitely will want to come back and explore more as more is added. Bring some cash to donate to the construction effort as well as visit the gift shop.
What a fantastic journey to visit this wonderful structure built from the imagination of one man! So much to see and explore through the various rooms and towers. If you get the chance to engage Jim (the builder) in conversation he will explain some of the MANY difficulties he encountered with the government. Be sure to drop a donation in the box to keep this wonderful place open.
A must see when through the area! I agree with other reviews about keeping an eye on young ones and entering at your own risk in the high up areas and the active construction sections. Fun and very unique!
