A fun attraction!

I went to Gobbler's Knob in October when no one else was around. It's a little deserted feeling but the stage and everything are still there for you to see. It's fun to be able to... read more

Always liked the movie, was a little disappointed the town looks nothing like the movie. Was hoping to find a nice place to eat, but honestly there is nothing much there. Stopped in at the Burrow for a drink. It's pretty far off the beaten path, probably won't be back.

I went to Gobbler's Knob in October when no one else was around. It's a little deserted feeling but the stage and everything are still there for you to see. It's fun to be able to walk up to Phil's Burrow and see what the inside looks like and stand on the stage when there aren't 30,000 people there. There's... More

We stopped by since we were driving through town. It is a little bit out of town up on a hill. There are several signs explaining the history of Groundhog Day and how Punxsutawney Phil plays a part in it. You can also walk down to the stage to see the stump he comes out from each year on February... More

We passed through on a whim. Mr. Young had greeted us, and appears to be there most the time. The man is a fountain of knowledge on everything associated with the Ground Hog Day traditions. We always loved the Ground Hog, but now we have a new found respect for his prognostication of the weather! Think snow😀. The Korn's

Neat to go to the place where weather is determined each February 2 by a ground hog. A must see if you are in town! There is a cute little trail you can walk on and many photo opportunities. You can also stand on the stage and take photos there.

After watching the film Groundhog Day wanted to go and see where the actual weather predictions are made in February every year by Punxsutawney Phil. Although not much going this time of year it attracts about 30,000 people in February for the prediction and they have to shuttle people in by bus from about 3am in the morning. Greeted by... More

Our visit was in the middle of September so nothing special was going on, however it was neat to be where the annual ceremony happens. Nice area outside of town, easy to drive to. Hopefully next time we can come back to watch the seer of seers.

My husband and I have watched Phil predict the weather for years on TV and always wanted to visit the town and place where the event took place. We planned a day trip to Punxsutawney and made sure Gobblers Knob was on our list of places to see. We had the pleasure of meeting Bob Young a volunteer who gives... More

Went with family to see where Punxsutawney Phil appears on Groundhog's Day. Nice park with area to picnic. Well kept trails with groundhog "art work" and signs giving info on Groundhogs Day, etc. Activity there for kids to track animals and free coins. Kids loved posing for pictures at the archway and on stage.

We came, we saw, we left. Interesting to see where it all takes place. There was nothing happening. I'm still glad we went.
