We found this absolutely fascinating! It seems this has baffled geologists, no one knows how they were formed, (maybe a pigeon toed giant?) only that they are millions of years old! Really worth a look.

We stopped here after visiting Mon Repos. It is interesting but sadly lost in time. It wouldn't take much to refresh the place. The admission price is a joke! $15.50 for 1 adult and 1 child - we paid $12.50 for our awesome turtle experience...More

We were driving through and decided to stop off and view them. Pretty cheap entry fee, and the lady who ran it gave us a good history of the craters, and the theories about them. Other than the craters there isn't much there, and it...More
