Unusual, But Fun

We stopped here on our way back to Moab. It is fun and kitchy and quaint. The gift shop has some really nice things. The grounds have some fun and interesting attractions.

I've been visiting this place since I was a kid (over 40 years ago) and it hasn't changed a bit. The story of how it was built and the love that went into it is awesome. I would definitely recommend paying the few dollars for the tour.

Hole N the Rock is a unique home built in a huge rock by Albert and Gladys Christensen. It started out as a restaurant and became their home as they blasted out more and more rooms. A tour of the home is offered(no pictures please) and you will learn the history behind this neat home(very interesting). There is a petting... More

Yes, it is a tourist trap. But that does not mean you shouldn't stop. We went through the market but not the house tour or trading post. There are two jeeps you must see. One is on top of the 200' ft (?) tall rock and the other was "parked" in front of the market. One is normal (if you... More

This is a home built in the side of a mountain. Interesting couple built the place as their residence and it is now a tourist attraction.

This is an interesting experience. The hole in a rock was at one time at restaurant and personal living quarters build into the Red Rock by a couple. It is worth a visit.

I've been stopping at Hole N The Rock since I was a little kid and now I take my kids there. For good old fashioned cheesy roadside fun, this place can't be beat. The family that owns it has done a wonderful job keeping it up and adding new things. A tour of the house is a must, truly amazing.

We were a group of 10 who had heard of the Hole 'n the rock before we went to Moab. The history is fascinating and it was interesting to go through. It seems a bit expensive at $6/ person for a 15 min tour but most in our group enjoyed it. The petting zoo is extra and there are a... More

I've visited the attraction twice. The home tour is truly impressive and worth the fee. Additionally the petting zoo, while small, is a ton of fun for all ages. Kramer the camel is adorable. Also, during our most recent visit one of the zoo staff came through and was able to tempt out the very pregnant alpaca! He was also... More
