First, it's right off 101. Just a little turn out. If you miss it, like we did, and continue up the road, turn around when you start hearing banjos. These plants are really weird. And I like weird. Yeah, it's not a huge place. Yeah,...More

We saw the road sign and pulled over to discover a very peculiar plant site. There's an eerie feeling as you look at these carnivorous plants and the grove is very peaceful and easily accessible. Well worth a mini detour.

This site was right across the highway from our camp at Sutton. They have done a nice job making the grove accessible to people. You might not get to see this unusual plant if you don't make it a point to stop. Information boards give...More

Nice little place to stop off at. Right off the 101. It is a peaceful walk around the wetlands to see these interesting plants. Nice place for a quick little sightseeing adventure.

It's been a few years since our last visit. When my wife mentioned that it was just up the road, and I asked if this was the place with the plants that eat insects (she said yes), I knew I had to go back. Just...More

We were impressed by the plant life and the short nature walk. There was plenty of information on the plant life. It was a good stop on the way north to the state park.

While visiting the area, we stopped in. We've been here a few times before. Not overly exciting, but interesting. They done a nice job building the walkway into this plant area.
