The museum at Tule Lake is very interesting and informative. The site of the camp itself is mostly bare land except for the Jail. Chris did a very good job, with charts and maps, explaining how the camp used to be in the past. It...More

Stopped for a short visit today at the Tule Lake War Relocation Center. A place that actor George Takei once spent time at with his parents.

Worth pulling off the highway, but we were disappointed by the lack of information. Best to go the the Tulelake - Butte Valley Museum for information about this historic place.
