Very pleasant surprise.

Very pleasant surprise. Didn't know what to expect. Things were a little worn down and the grass needed cutting. But overall a nice place.

Great Spiritual experience in a beautiful setting
Jul 2021
This is a truly unique and spiritually uplifting park. It was developed in the 1940's and I was raised in North Carolina and had never heard about ir until someone told me about it within the past year. I am VERY glad I planned this trip and visited it. Well worth the trip. Wish I could get all of my family and friends to visit this park.

Great experience in biblical nature exibit
Jul 2021 • Family
There is lot to see and plenty of wide open spaces in nature to enjoy the abundant foliage and beautiful vistas . There are options to drive to the top or climb lots of stairs. A good amount of time was spent reading the huge amount of biblical text displayed around the park. We enjoyed the gift shop and the food was really good at the cafe. It was a pretty well maintained park except for some rusty banisters and crumbly cement areas but you could see that they were working in some areas. My son , who is 15 , had just finished reading his teen Bible in his last school year was enthralled to see this much religious references all in one place. There are plenty of picnic benches and places to sit peacefully all around the property.

Can’t wait to go back with more family members this year.

We love Fields of the wood. It runs on donations.
It is an amazing experience. 2 hill sides full of a great history and faith. No matter where you come from you can climb both areas and learn something new. The biggest 10 commandments we’ve ever seen. There’s a tomb like from Jesus would have been it. Bible verses up one side. Gift shop and cafe are also on site and both are incredible. There’s also a drive bypass if
You can’t make it up the mountain physically. So it’s great for every age.

Enjoyable and scenic

Beautiful setting. The faithful will appreciate it the most. Ragged on the edges, but impressive nonetheless. Messaging focused on Church of God.

We just visit it today. For the 1 time ever. Will be back. But I can can say. It in bed shape. Need a lot of work for sure. Only when up one side of it. Because I have a bad knee.

I climbed the world's largest ten commandments... AND SURVIVED
Mar 2021
Fields of the Wood is stuck in the deepest craw of North Carolina. I'll go to any length to see the world's largest anything, so I wound up here. There is a central parking area where you can walk to most of the attractions here. You'll find Prayer Mountain with a bunch of bible quotations, a friendly cat, and a prayer spot at the top with a pile of trash next to it. There is a recreation of Jesus' tomb where you can climb inside for a cheeky photo op. A little farther down is a gift shop with some fun souvenirs, including a shirt that says you climbed the world's largest ten commandments AND SURVIVED. At the top of the mountain, the flag crucifix has no flags, so that is not worth checking out. The main attraction is the commandments. It has certainly seen better days, but is worth climbing up it in case you want to buy an I survived tee. It's a quirky sight, but being tucked away so far from everything makes it tough to justify the trip. Only the most devout religious or roadside attraction zealots should visit this aging wonder.

Head Shanking Bad
Jun 2020
I have visited Field of the Woods at least three times, the first with my parents in the mid-80's when I lived about 40 miles away and twice since because I was in the area visiting family and I had people with me I think everyone should see this horrible "religious" place at least once. To call "Field of the Woods" bad gives the word bad a bad name. To call it an amusement park makes it sound like there is something fun and enjoyable about going - believe me, there is not. Each time I have been there, it has taken all my reserve to keep from laughing at the tacky nature of ever aspect. As a lifelong Christian, I find this place sad, depressing and embarrassing. How anyone could find the run-down Field of the Woods anything but horrible, is beyond me. In general the entire place is in terrible repair and just awful. To walk around and see concrete "tablets" of bible scripture paid for by, I guess, the churches of this denomination as located in different states is sad, sad, sad. It is a poor man's edifice to their denomination and provides no, nil, naught, nothing, nix, null, aught, goose-egg, zero, zilch, and nada sense of serenity, contemplation, or spirituality. The only redeeming feature is it is surrounded by the beauty of the Appalachian Mountains. Please go once but be prepared to stifle your laughter. The people who created this place are serious about it - sad and bad.

Cool place
Dec 2020 • Friends
This has been on my list of places to check out for awhile now so super excited I finally made it there. Lots of history here and plenty to see and do including a gift shop. You can spend a long time here if you want to check out all the sites and hike it all. They have options to drive to the top so those who have trouble walking don’t let the stairs scare you. It’s a really unique place and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s free to enter and open from sunrise to sunset. Perfect place for groups or families with picnic tables available to hang out or have a meal while there. Cell phone service was very limited. They also have trails nearby.
