Was ok

This is a decent little place to stop. The souvenir shop was fun to check out and the self guided tour was alright. The animals seem to have a sad environment; we saw trout, llamas, goats, and chickens that you could feed using coin operated dispensers.

It's still there! Be sure to pass it on to your children's children. Personally, I was glad to see that the old out houses were replaced with "inies".

This place is a hoot! Fun trading post / gift shop. Cool logging camp out-buildings as well as a few animals to feed. Very pleasant service. We had a very nice time!

Fun stop
Sep 2020
We stopped here on our way through. I thought it was a fun place and definitely worth the cost. The people that work in the gift shop ( which I believe are the owners) are fantastic, they are chatty and fun to talk to. The walk through is self guided and fun, you can see llamas and goats and the trout pond. I’d definitely stop again!!

Great time. Inexpensive. Great way to break up the drive. Best prices for moccasins. Treasure hunt kids was fun.

A fun place to bring a family
Aug 2020
We enjoyed our stop at Tom's Logging Camp, spending just under an hour here. This would be a good place for a family to enjoy.
You are given a map and do a self guided tour of the different buildings on the site which explain what it would have been like.
There are also areas you can put a quarter in to feed the animals: trout pond and goats. The food goes down a shoot at this time, but at other times it is possibly hand fed?
Your entrance in and out is through the gift shop that seems to have about everything you could want.
The restrooms are located across the parking lot in an area that houses a small cafe that might normally be open, but wasn't this summer.
The only down side I found was that some of the displays had fence material in front of them that made it hard to take a photo.
All in all, this would be a fun place for families.

Great for the kids
Aug 2020 • Family
Finally made a stop here the other day after driving by more than a few times. We are very glad we did. Our two boys thought it was a great adventure and for the price, is one of the most reasonably activities you can do on the North Shore. The staff were very friendly and while the whole experience does not take a long time, it is definitely worth the trip in there. Will come back.

A fun little stop!
Aug 2020 • Family
On our way up to Gooseberry Falls, we noticed this little roadside gem. We stopped on our way back, and I'm so glad we did! Stops like this one are what road trips through small towns are all about. Start in the gift shop and buy your "tickets" for the self-guided tour through the logging camp. The price was very reasonable; $5/adult, $4/kid 5 and up, 4 and under were free. Head outside and start at the trout pond. Make sure you have a couple of quarters to buy some food for the animals along the way. The kids won't appreciate the history, but the tour is filled with facts about what logging camps looked like over 100 years ago and there were tons of artifacts from back in the day. The entire tour only takes about 20 minutes, but it was fun! The gift shop is full of the normal souvenir shop garbage as well as some jewelry and taxidermy mounts. The gals behind the counter were extremely friendly and chatty and made the visit that much better. There is a 2nd building that housed the restrooms and it appears that there is normally a little restuarant with quick bites as well as an ice cream parlor. Not sure if this was permanently closed, or if it had something to do with the pandemic, but that would have made for a perfect visit!
