Service inside is faster than the drive-thru.
Great quiet and isolated place to camp. Safe to tow an RV into.
Spoke with the manager of Big Boy (current owner of the property) and he said "It would cost way too much to fix it." Maybe the Chamber of Commerce and/or some historic preservation group can help?
Thermometer is currently broken - displays random numbers. Maintenance apparently was costing around $40,000 per year - even when the thermometer was in better condition.
Plenty of abandoned buildings to explore here. Heavily vandalized ans stripped, but still fun to explore. Lower base is wide open, but upper base is newly-fenced.
