This is a fun place to shop. They also have a self guided tour in the back that kids and adults will enjoy. The food is also very delicious!

We had a nice stop here on our way back home. The people there were very friendly! We enjoyed what felt like a step back in time, and I could remember stopping there with my family when growing up. We had fun looking at the gift shop, and made a few purchases.

Cute little place, not a whole lot to see but worth the reasonable price. Super nice people that run the place. The gift shop is awesome and super inexpensive!! Grand kids thought it was great! will go back again for sure.

We must have spent an hour wandering the property looking at all the places in the camp. The pictures were wonderful, the cabins all had interesting items/exhibits in them and the information that was presented was very neat. Also, you have the chance to feed fish, goats and llamas. Who wouldn't love that? Definitely worth the small entry fee. And,... More

It's a family tradition on our annual Duluth trip to go to Tom's Logging camp for suveineers. Great little gift shop and awesome ice cream. All the grandkids love it.

The tour is self-guided, so you can make it as quick or long as you wish. The displays are set up to be like a logging camp was, there are signs explaining each "scene". There is a "fun house" building too, with mirrors and a water feature that appears to go uphill. It was okay, not quite what we expected.... More

Ok, it's a little cheesy. But having said that I did enjoy. Very informative on life back in the logging days. Those people were no sissy's. And, I got to feed goats AND a llama. How cool is that!
