Deep Cut Park.

Vito Genovese's Mount Vesuvius Volcano

The volcano is not listed on any park maps, and visitors mistake it for a pizza oven. Take time to walk the park, breathtaking.

[Kathy, 06/29/2022]

Roadside America designated Vito's volcano as the most important landmark to see in the park, and pointed out the amusing pizza oven assumption. It's understandable that county officials wouldn't see eye-to-eye with us on honoring this one item on their lovely property.
