We saw Phil at the library first then went to Gobbler’s Knob to see where the action is on Ground Hog Day. Had seen this many times in TV, so was fun to be there. We were there about 2 weeks before February 2nd and...More

I cant tell you about a area that has so little to see, that attracts so many people. Seriously, go check it out. Enjoy the fun of it. The whole event will last 5 minutes tops and then the traffic will be hours. But at...More

Gobler's knob is a couple miles uphill from town so don't expect to walk there in February like in the movie. In fact, none of the movie was filmed in Punxsutawney PA. But once you get over that disappointment, Punxsutawney is still a nice town...More

Its a place of historic proportions on Groundhog Day. Every other day of the year its a field and Phil doesn't even live in it. .I can say ive been there at least, even if it wasn't on the big Day.

The exact location where Punxsutawney Phil emerges every February 2nd in front of thousands to either see or nor see his shadow.

I was in the area (Dubois), and I thought I would do the quick trip to see this site by myself. It is kind of cool to see live this location as I think I must have seen the movie "Groundhog's Day" about 10 times....More

With the ground hog day being such an annual event and after seeing the Ground Hog day movie several times, I wanted to see where this event took place. It was interesting to see.

A good place to ask this would be the local Punxsutawney library where they house Phil. I’m sure they would be happy to share the best parking times and locations.

Snow pants would be brilliant. It's freezing and people start showing up between 3 and 4am. Better to wear something that you can take off if you're too hot, than to not have enough layers on and freeze your butt off!
