It was a lovely park to walk around. There were metal sculptures around the walking path that were hand made by the locals and information signs. Cool to be on the stage and see the area where everything happens on Feb 2nd, however even thought...More

We were traveling through PA and decided to go to Gobblers Knob since we were so close. (We thought it would be cool to say we'd been there) It's not what we expected, not like the movie at all, but it was a good side...More

I did not visit Gobbler's Knob on Groundhog's Day; I visited in August. We were passing through the area and made a quick side trip to see Phil the Groundhog's stage. Phil is usually not at Gobbler's Knob because they keep him in town behind...More

It was a neat place to visit while passing through. Not sure it is worth a single trip unless you don’t have to travel far. Also, I don’t think I would want to go in the cold weather with the crowd on Groundhog’s day.

No traffic is permitted to the knob once the buses start. Yes you catch a bus back and if you are in shape the walk may not be a problem. It is up snd down grades and when you are cold a miserable walk for me at least. The... More
