Pioneer Town

Home of the rideable Jackalope. Jackalope photos cost $1 per person with your own camera. Many very interesting exhibits, but mostly just looking with your eyes. It's home to the only known glass bottle house made entirely of soda bottles. We found a famous longhorn from our own hometown tucked away in the barbed wire exhibit.

Neat little town. We went during off season and happened into the museum. The owner, Jack Glover, was absolutely charming. His life stories were amazing. I would recommend going just to talk to him. He made it completely worth it.

Fake old west town.

Replica Pioneer Town

A recreated pioneer town features a little arcade, faux post office, train station and saloon. Very kitschy and cute. When we went it was closed, but it was fun to walk around and take photos for about 10 minutes. Normally there is a $5 parking fee. I assume it's mostly patronized by kids in cabins nearby, but it's worth a stop if you like silly retro western stuff. There are places to swim nearby, a spa and cabins. We also drove over a weird bridge that wasn't much higher than the water, and we could have high fived the people sitting in the water. Interesting area.
