Just as described, the place has a gift shop where you can get your big foot souvenirs or your Mount Saint Helens ash and debris.

The reigning "Hide & Seek" champion is alive in well in this great stop off. Support the cause and grab some cool Yeti swag while sharing a story with good people! [Mike Larson, 09/03/2016]

Stopped here and glad we did. It was a great visual of the impact of the mudslide from the Mt. St. Helen's eruption. Not sure how long the house will last -- glad we saw it while we could. Bigfoot Statue was fun photo op.

Bigfoot and the Buried A-Frame

Seems things change over the years. I saw this A-frame and surrounding area shortly after it was opened up after the mountain blast and they'd started digging out inside. THAT was interesting to see. It no longer is worth a stop. Just someone trying to make a buck on tourists. No upkeep at all. Skip this in your trip around the mountain.

[Rocky, 09/16/2012]

We wish they'd left the mud mayhem and would open up the A-Frame walk-thru again, but still think it's worth a quick look in tandem with the Bigfoot statue. Also, we're counting on another eruption -- future generations can tour a Buried Tourist Trap.
