They place looks much better on the website. If your close it’s ok but don’t make a trip for this. It’s ok but not much other than dusty old rooms inside. Having been built over the last 80 years it has a fridge toilet and electric so it’s not exactly nostalgic. The video giving some of the background was the best part.

I planned a day of hiking and visiting the castle, luckily I was only staying 30 mins away as any further would not have been worth it. The story and history are cool, it's interesting to hear about the journey it took to create the castle. The castle itself isn't anything special, but works for what it was intended for. It took me about 10 mins to view the unlabeled and often unidentifiable artifacts in the dusty little rooms. I walked around the gardens but for whatever reason, maybe time of year, most everything looked weedy and some spots looked striped of plants. I appreciate the local and sentimental value it holds, the front desk attendant told me they still use it for religious gatherings... But I wouldn't go out of my way just to see it.

We live in Mason, OH, and been in the area for 34 years, but never made it out here. Sure should have! It was interesting to hear the history behind the castle and to see what basically one man accomplished. The castle is operated by the Knights of the Golden Trail and the man at the front desk was extremely informative in a very short period of time. The admission price is only $5. Some reviewers said don’t bother or the place is needs work. It’s not a corporately manufactured Disneyland castle folks! There are picnic tables near by overlooking the Little Miami River, so planning on a picnic would be perfect. There are no expensive museum cafeterias or restaurants near by, so it’s bring your own. If you’re looking for something different and local, I’d recommend you check this place out. And finally, TripAdvisor says it’s open only on weekends. That is true for October to April, but summer hours include Monday - Friday, so I suggest you check the website for details.

If you are in the area, it is well worth stopping to see. We were in and out in less than 20 minutes. It's small and in a neighborhood but it is neat to see and a good photo opp. Only $5 to get in and isn't worth more than that.

Neat little adventure, isn’t a whole lot to see but the history of the place makes it very neat. The staff was super friendly, the video was knowledgeable. It was worth the 5 bucks.
