We stopped by this place. It was closed but there's not much to see. Just an open field and a building. But perhaps there is more inside.

We stumbled upon a brochure about this by accident. We stopped to get pics of the Jackalopes, and found a brochure for the camp. Turns out we had driven by it twice, because of the unassuming signage! What a treasure. The paintings are amazing. I...More
