The News Paper rock is worth seeing but the overall place is just another pretty place in with many pretty locations.

I wouldn't make it a stop, or anything, however I thought this place was the "rest stop" and was pleasantly entertained by all the things they had here. A bowling ball cactus (exactly like it sounds), his/hers fire hydrants for your dogs to pee on,...More

The opening under a rock mountain was made into living quarters. If you are driving on 191 this is a must see tour. Even if you don't take the tour the outside area is fun to see. The builder had a sense of humor.

This is up from Wilson's Arch so we decided to stop here too find out why there was a big sign painted on the rocks. We weren't too impressed so left fairly quickly one may want to stop just to say they stopped but on...More

Just a simple road side stop to get out and stretch your legs. Tiny zoo and interesting shops. Friendly people.

A weird and unusual stop of this hidden gem. Very touristy but interesting. Easy to miss if it was not for the huge white painted letters on the rock face.

You cannot just be in the area or pass by with out pulling over and seeing what it's all about! We stopped in and decided to take the tour through the home. Being able to walk through the home with the original furnishings was quite...More
