Rest Area

I hate to say it, but I think the rest area is gone. It still wasn't there when we visited Carhenge last week.

No longer there. Site is empty.

The hay bale rest area has been around for over 20 years, with frequent remodelings as the old hay wore out. Maybe you had the misfortune to stop by before this year's hay bales arrived -- we hope.

Still there in all its glory. Wifi didn't work and the toilet wouldn't flush. Fun stop! Nice way to end your visit to Carhenge.

This is great! Just north of Carhenge, sitting at the side of the road, breaking up the cornfield views. Brilliant!
