“fun for kids of all ages!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Kids get a real kick out of feeding all the animals and fish in the trout pond! Lots of free roaming bunnies are a big hit too. Lots to learn about the "ild days for young and old.

“Loved the nostalgia”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

My husband and i went here to check it out on a recent vacation. It was very inexpensive and the gift shop was moderately priced. The actual tour was self guided and very enlightening as to how tough it was for these guys in the logging camps of the early 1900s. The animals that insisted that you feed them were pretty endearing too (and they got a few dollars of pet chow from us) however, the food that was served at the snack bar was delicious. The lunches my husband and I had were some of the best we've ever tasted and the guy that served them was so down to earth we would go back just to visit in a heartbeat. Don't hesitate to show your kids exactly what it was like way back when in northen Minnesota. It will make then appreciate their lives a bit more. And it's worth the stop especially for such a down-home price!

“Wouldn't go again”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

I thought this was a waste of our time. Take in the Glenshine mansion in Duluth instead! This is fairly primitive. We were all adults so maybe the kids would have a different opinion but our group was not impressed. The cost isn't that bad (I think it was $5) but don't go out of your way to see it!

“Great shopping!”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

Didn't have time to go on the actual tour of the logging camp, but the shopping here is wonderful! All kinds of north country kitsch, and the owner is very friendly and seemed to remember people from their visits in previous years. Was able to find a lot of trinkets, tee shirts, jewelry etc for various friends at home. Would definitely stop again!

“Great Attraction”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

What a great experience, I'm so glad that our family stopped here during our Duluth vacation. The owners are extremely nice, you can tell they enjoy meeting the families that stop by their establishment. The self guided tour was informational and fun. The kids enjoyed feeding the animals and the fish, and I enjoyed how easy on the pocketbook it was. Unlike zoos that cost $.50 for a few pieces of feed, a quarter gets you a handful. The gift shop had a lot of fun items which were very reasonably priced. The food at Tom's Too was amazing and also very reasonable, all in all we were extremely satisfied...even the hard to please teenagers in our group. We're all looking forward to going again the next time we make it to that area.
