It's a small and peaceful park in Foyil with more concrete art than just the totem pole, though that alone is impressive enough to visit. There are no fees, and is free for all to visit.

We visited Totem Poll City with one nine year old, two eight year olds and 6 year old. The kids had fun running around the grounds, checking out the Totem poles and other displays. It's a fun quick stop for those traveling down I44 or taking the Route 66 trip.

We just had to stop and see this while on Route 66. What a crazy and amazing place!! I can only describe it as eccentric and I love that! Please don't miss this place if you are passing. Well worth a half an hour of your time!!

You expect to see places like this when driving the path of the old Route 66. And there's a lesson with this particular item. If you are going to go all the way to Foyil, Oklahoma, remember to take a picture of the main attraction. I forgot to do so, and had to use one from an on-line source to... More

It's a few miles down a country road off of Route 66 -- a little tricky to find. Once there, there are great photo ops. Classic Route 66! The Fiddle House/gift shop is small and consists mostly of fiddle displays, and this is also where you can get the key to the bathroom.

The world's largest totem pole was built in 1948, the same year I was born. I've visited here a couple of times before, but not since the 70's. It has aged well. This park has a gift shop but it was closed when we visited. There is no charge but donations are accepted. This is actually about 4 miles from... More

You really have to watch for the entrance to this one as it is poorly marked. But once there, it is a fascinating structure and a true Route 66 Icon.The story behind the artist and these structures is fascinating, unfortunately you have to go on-line to read the history, since there were no plaques that we could find at the...

This is the kind of stop you would expect on Route 66! It is very interesting to see. Every time you look at the largest piece of art, it seems you see a new animal or object. It does not take very long to see it all, but it is free.

Use your GPS because it will give you more of a warning than the signage will; the only sign is AT the entrance...consider yourself advised or be prepared to turn around somewhere down the road. No admission, just a simple donation box; fold your bill(s) really small or they won't fit DOWN into the box. Dog friendly (park/walking area). The... More

We stopped here 5 years ago before the restoration and it was really run down. Now that the restoration is finished it is much better.The colors are much brighter and the cracks have been repaired. The building next to the totem pole has a large collection of fiddles made from wood from all over the world. It is very interesting.... More
