We were there in August, so "Phil" was not there, but we got to see the small park there and the "grandstand" area. Took some fun photos from the grandstand, and took a short walk through the adjoining woodlands which has cast iron statues along the walking route with various references to Phil and his "tongue in cheek history".

Unless it's actually Groundhog's Day (February 2) you'll probably feel silly visiting Gobbler's Knob. Without the groundhog and the news vans and the tourists and the top-hatted members of the honorable Groundhog Club, it's just you on a hill with a stage and a padlocked fake tree stump. Even my puppy, who will sniff and try to eat anything, couldn't... More

after seeing it on TV for so many years, to stop by and see it in person is something kind of neat. Just the stage where Phil comes out to predict the weather but just to see it is nice

I just think it is so much fun to come for Groundhogs Day, just people having fun over nothing really, just taking a break from stress and getting out from worrying about the cold and everyone is so nice and enjoys our small town . I just love it.

We just stopped by here for a quick drive-by.. It was pouring down rain so that dampened things.. but it was still fun to visit.

We stopped recently at Gobblers Knob just to take the kids to see where Phil may or may not see his shadow every February 2nd. They thought it was cool that they could stand on the stage. They really enjoyed going up town to see Phil and all the groundhog statues. Great stop if you are in the area. Clean... More

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
