Myth or fact ? Why worry. This is a lovely stop to stretch the legs and absorb some of the Tourist trappings on sale. Pleasant friendly staff. Parking is a bit of a nightmare.....well it was for us.

A great place to stop along the way. The staff was friendly. Lots of great touristy items to buy, it was a little spendy. I found some great postcards here. There are some wonderful wood carvings to see outside, and we even saw Big Foot....More

We drove by and thought oh look at the carvings. When we stopped and walked over we realize the odds of these actually being created there were not good. All the statues look alike as if from a mold not carved. Don't feel like wood....More

Definitely a tourist destination, but very cool items and carvings to stop and see. A great spot to pick up souvenirs, including carved items. A little pricy on some items, but really cute and one of the best shops we found in the area.

Just to be clear, this is nothing but a gift shop with a Bigfoot statue in front. It is no way any kind of museum or anything. But it is a GREAT gift shop- all sorts of fun Big Foot swag.

This is one of those must see tourist traps. The gift shop is filled fun items and it is a great place to teach kids about how Redwood trees grow from Burls.

This gift shop has something for everyone. From T-shirts, mugs, jewelry, to your must have bigfoot reading material. The handmade carvings and chimes are wonderful!
