  • We just happened to be driving on Highway 165 and discovered the Castle. Amazed that we had never heard of it before. I did not actually climb the steps to go in but it was just amazing to look at all...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The beauty of what one man can build. We visit here quite often, such a lovely place to go and unwind and enjoy nature! Mr. Bishop is such a talented man.
  • This place is interesting, but seriously watch your kids! Seems like this place is not subject to any kind of safety regulation. Maybe because its on private property? Honestly, I just wanted to get away from it before I saw some poor kid fall off the top.
  • Astounding. This castle is amazing in itself and add to it that one man built it himself. The steps up the towers are grated so you can see down and not all of them have handrails. The structure is sound but you do have to be careful, especially on windy days. I would recommend it to everyone.
