This attraction is located in the Canyonland's on US Highway 191, north of Monticello, UT, and south of Moab, UT. You have to watch for it, because the road has many curves and rocks that jut out to where it is difficult to see the Hole in the Rock until you are almost to it. It has a big "Hole... More

We had a couple people tell us that this place is something you don't want to miss...trust me that is 30 minutes and 30$ we will never get back. The tour was short, & expensive for our family of six. The poor animals that were stuffed looked terrible and we will have nightmares forever. The poor donkey looked like his... More

For a truly unique experience that you will always remember, you have to stop at Hole N' the Rock and take a "house" tour. I have done it twice now. Once in 2003 and again in 2011. Like I stated before, it will be one of the most unique tours you will ever take in your life. This guy built... More

This place has lots of cheap tourist crap. And the zoo is a hell-hole for the animals. It stinks and the animals look very dejected and have pavlovian responses to seeing a human in the expectation of a food reward. I wish I hadn't spent $4.50 to enter the zoo as it just encourages the owners to keep this sad... More

We took the tour which included a lot of very interesting history. It's basically a home blown into a mountain/rock by dynamite….with rooms, a fireplace, even a bathroom and kitchen. The grounds also have tons of unique art and antiques to view. There's even a zoo and a gift shop. We did not go into the zoo but browsed everywhere... More

The entire property, incl zoo, animals, artwork, is currently for sale, 2.5 million. I went here with expectations of a cheesy tourist trap. At first, I was pleasantly surprised. We visited the store which had some cool old things. The woman behind the counter was exceptionally nice and said she'd been there since they opened. We bought food for the... More

I am really saddened by the fact that you needed to go to social media after our conversation that day. After trying to calm your fears, I was the first one to tell you to feel free to go further and put in a complaint with the USDA if you still felt the need, but to go public and state... More

We stopped and visited the home and toured the zoo. We loved feeding the animals, seeing an albino raccoon and all of the baby's in the zoo. The tour was a little crowded because of a tour bus arriving shortly after we came. The old tow truck dressed up as Mater from CARS was fun to see.

Initially I thought this was going to be a tacky tourist spot... well, maybe it is, but they also have some pretty neat metal works on the site. I didn't go into the shops or take the tour, but enjoyed looking at the metal sculptures. A nice place to stretch the legs after a long drive.

The home itself was definitely worth the round-trip drive down and back from Moab. It's really an epic artifact of roadside American kitsch. Thankfully, someone had the foresight to turn it into a little museum. The interior of the cave-house has been embalmed in its 1960s state with all the furniture and decor, seemingly as the deceased couple left it.... More

The large advertising billboard on the way from Moab has a picture of a bear standing on its hind legs with the text "Will beg for food". What a shameful indication of the attitude towards the current animals here that are used as commodities to try to attract the tourist buck. There is no need to have animals at an... More
