A hole in the ground, literally. You can see it all in five minutes. Nothing for kids to do. If it's not out of your way then stop by. Not worth a long drive.

The Archbald Pothole State Park is small and a visitor can see it all in about 10 minutes. It is a unique geological phenomena.

This was a surprise to see. Archbald Pothole was formed during the Wisconsin Glacial Period. Discovered by Patrick Mahon. To imagine that 13,000 years ago, this "pothole" was created, it's pretty darn cool! Please note that there is fencing around it, so it's safe for the kiddies!

Pretty little park but there is literally nothing more than a parking lot and a pothole. The pothole is a great geological treasure but is usually filled with leaves.
