One of the most serene places, I've ever been. The surroundings are somewhat wild. But in a contained area. You are free to roam and just "let go". The chapel is beautiful!! Not fancy, but very inviting. Though surrounded by the outside world, that marvelous piece of property is a welcoming Haven. All should visit @ once. I promise, "You will want to go back"
Definitely a good roadside attraction to stop at, especially if you are Catholic or Christian. They have a nice chapel and a interesting "Way of the Cross." You can see the crucifix and chapel from either direction on Interstate 80. They have parking right at the facility as well as an overflow parking area just at the bottom of the entrance. We were in a 30"RV and towing a car so we just parked along the main road near the entrance. It is easy to navigate, even a big rig, back to the highway from either approach direction.
