This is well worth the drive to see the spectacular views of the Kansas countryside. Climbing the steps can be tricky because they are different heights and not uniform, so you have to pay attention when walking on them. Although it was not built by...More

It is definitely worth while to visit this site. It offers you a bird's-eye view of the wheat fields and plains below, and gives you a peaceful feel for the land.

Just a neat experience and if you know local history it helps even more. Bit of a windy road to get up to it but well worth it. They are working to keep it preserved better.

They have restored the castle and bathrooms. It's a great view and offers plenty of opportunities for amazing photos. I would recommend timing your outing to include sunset and don't forget your picnic basket.

I was surprised by this castle. I could imagine it being an actual castle. You walk into the tower to enter and come to the steps up to the second level. The steps are steep and narrow and since I have walking issues I did...More

We had a small rental car and easily got up to the top with 4 adults in the car. Just go slow and watch for people coming down from above. The castle is neat, and the sunset was wonderful.
