Log Barn Adventure! – Armstrong B.C.

On the highway between Kelowna and Shuswap Lake, just past the city of Armstrong is a magical place called the Log Barn. If you have taken this road before you wouldn’t have missed it, as there are signs advertising this place from miles around. The Log Barn is a great place to stop with the kids for a pee break. I warn you just to look with your eyes and pee then leave as this place is outrageously expensive to purchase anything, although they do give awesome sausage samples, but don’t get sucked in!!!! The only thing we did buy were 2 ring pops that came to over $6!!!!!!! CRAZY when they are usually less than $1. Yes I know my ring pop pricing, as they have saved the day, especially during trips to the mall, more than once!! Anyways, this place is a super crazy cool place to bring the kids to look around. There is everything from dinosaurs and dragons to real horses and goats and then everything else in between…

One of the biggest attractions at the Log Barn is the goats “kids crossing.” Its a narrow beam that the goats walk up and over the road. As you drive into this place you drive under the goats. You can pay to feed them by putting goat food in a feeder and then pull on a pulley to raise the food to the goats above. The goats have become so accustomed to this contraption that they can pull it up themselves!

There was so much to see at the Log Barn. These photos don’t even cover half of the crazy things they have there. My impression of the place is somewhat mixed. Its super cool for the kiddos to look around and to empty your bladder but… don’t get sucked into buying anything. They do not post prices until you ask how much something is. You will be blown away at the cost. So just have fun and enjoy your kiddos exploring with the dinos and dragons at the log barn!
