  • Very sad to say this place is closed. We drove up to where the locked gates were. It looked like there was a building that was crushed. Wish the website stated its currently closed. They should take down the freeway signs that advertise it as well
  • Couldn't get up to it. Road is awful. Very soft and very Rocky. We have a truck but don't need it trashed. We were disappointed
