I was there for Groundhog Day & didn't realize it is all just a big party. Years ago we were there and there were kegs of beer in the woods everywhere. Not like that anymore.

We went to see this when there wasn't anything going on. So, not sure how to rate it since all that is there is just to see where they hold Phil and the stump that holds Phil in Feb. It's probably better when they have Phil there and the Feb. activities. You can see Phil though at the library in... More

A very interesting place to visit in Punxy. A must see if you have never been there. The park is very nice and though we did not see it during spring and summer I hope to return soon.

if you are from out-of-town, please understand that locals don't hate tourists...we just get tired of answering the same questions over and over and over again. Groundhog Day grew faster than anyone realized. If Groundhog Day falls on a weekday (Sunday - Thursday), there won't be as many things to do than on the years that it falls on a... More

Gobbler's Knob is a park-like setting and have been up there during any time of the year except in February. The idea of 20,000 people - bused in to Gobbler's Knob at 5AM in the wet cold weather of February??? Then you have to take shuttle buses back to where you left your car. Most residents do not attend unless... More

Stopped to see Phil but he was hibernating again. I always jokingly threaten to make "groundhog stew" if he predicts of winter. Thought I would share that threat with him directly but he just laid in his burrow and ignored me. But for a first-timer in Punxsatawney my wife and I enjoyed walking around the city and checking out the... More

Being that i have always wanted to go to Gobbler's Knob (I celebrate Groundhog day every year), this was not at all what I expected. When I arrived, we went to a local diner to have lunch. It was the most uncomfortable meal I have ever had. Everyone in the diner were locals. They not only stared at us the... More

If you're thinking of ever going to see Punxsutawney Phil on Groundhog's Day (Feb 2), this is what we did and saw for 2014. We stayed in Hampton Inn, Indiana, PA. It's about 35 minutes away from Punxsutawney and the hotel was much cheaper than trying to find an inexpensive place in Punxsutawney. After a short night of sleep, we... More

The local write-ups are pretty honest - it's in the middle of the woods on a muddy slope with thousands of people. This is not what you see in "Groundhog Day". Dress for cold, wet conditions. There are very minimal facilities of any kind on site but if you organize yourself just downhill from the information booth, you'll get a... More

Great time! Lots of activities throughout the day, we enjoyed watching the movie "Groundhog Day" at the community center and the scavenger hunt! Very friendly local people who are proud of their hometown. Come the day before and enjoy the fun! Also did the walking tour of Punxsutawney, some very interesting local information/ history! I think Phil nailed his prediction... More
