No, it's not the same spot as in the movie. The movie takes place in Punxatawny but was actual filmed in Woodstock, IL. If you know that going in you shouldn't be disappointed, because it's still fun. Gobbler's Knob is open year round even though I don't think they use it for much in the off season. We went in...

Went through Punxsutawney on a road trip and as luck would have it, Bob Young just happened to be at Gobblers Knob and generously gave us an hour of his time and told us about the history of the tradition and about the area. We learned so much and he made our visit so much more meaningful!

We had to stop off here during a U.S. road trip as fans of the movie Groundhog Day. After spending some time taking photos, a man appeared in his car and introduced himself as Bob Young. He then proceeded to turn our afternoon into a truly wonderful experience. Bob is a volunteer and displays so much passion for, and knowledge... More

Groundhog day 2017 was a blast. There is a large crowd here for one of America's most interesting holidays. If you decide to do groundhog day, catch the bus at the local Walmart, costs $5. If you get on the bus by 4:30 or 5 would manage to get a decent spot at the knob. They do dancing and singing... More

Bring hand and foot warmers! We bought inner-circle passes from groundhog.org and were able to get up close to the stage. Festival started at 3:00 am. We got there at 5:30 and didn't feel like we had missed a thing.

We had a great time visiting Punxsutawney. Went to Gobbler's Knob for all of the GHD festivities. It was snowing at times and very cold, but it was a great experience. I would have never guessed that I would have been standing at Gobbler's Knob at 0330 in the morning, drinking hot choc and eating a hot dog whilst waiting... More
