We made the trip from CT we chose this rather than our normal polar caves. It was fun and interesting but there wasn't much in the way of actual exploring. You walk the path and view the caved and structures from a distance there were a couple of small "caves" (really just cubbys) you could explore but most were chained off. My kids enjoyed but if you are looking for more exploration this probably isnt the best place.

Intriguing- there is short 10 min video introducing the history and site to start you off. The place is not very impressive but does give one pause who/how these stones were place and why. We had to really stretch the imagination at points to understand the concepts. Not much to see here. Lovely walkabout (be sure to have bug spray or use theirs which is supplied free). It took us about an hour total to walk thru the self-guided tour. They could definitely make this more interesting. Fun walk for kids but a free nature walk in the woods would be just as much fun for them. We had a Groupon, glad we did.

Interesting place. Certainly gave one much to speculate about as to who built the place, as it had astrological components.

You could watch a short (10 min) video presentation before entering, which was helpful.

We enjoyed it and the small gift shop had remarkably inexpensive items.

This a unique place...somewhat dated with signs, exhibits in the lodge etc. .... maintenance of the sites would be a plus. Not worth the full admission price ..use a Groupon!

The stones, and the idea of this place are provocative. There isn't all that much to see nd do but it filled an afternoon with grammy when she was visiting.
