Getting to Walk around Red oak is a fun adventure for all ages. We got to view the historic buildings and Chat with Lowell Davis about the history behind the property. Very interesting spot.

This is definitely a hard place to describe. It is quirky, charming, artsy, historic and just plain fun to visit. When you first arrive you aren't quite sure of things but it only takes a few minutes to figure out that people live in this...More

Wonderful place to visit. Charming, with a lot of Lowell Davis' unique sense of humor showing in his sculptures. Meeting the artist was a high point of our trip.

Having visited this place upon the recommendation of a co-worker over 20 years ago, we were delighted to find that, not only did the place still exist, it has seemingly thrived! Many more rescued buildings and more artwork. It is not an actual "town" -...More

We heard about Red Oak II from at least 4 different people. And it was better than they made it out to be. Quirky and fun. A geocache or two to add to your collection. Art, buildings, humor. It was a great way to start...More

No food, no gift shop, and no real hours.... it is much like a small town, you just show up. However if you show up after dark, you may be challenged.... 8:00am to 6:00pm would be my suggestion. Respect those that actually... More

There's no entrance fee. It's free for everyone to enjoy. They have a Donations box if you want to throw in a few dollars though. But there's no pressure to do so.
