Hot Sam’s Foto Park

Hot Sam's Antiques, Foto Park, Roadside attraction is complete with a beach, tiki hut, and a hippy camp, old cars, vintage circus wagons, aliens, train cars, and more. You can take photos, lease a prop or rent the space for a small fee (otherwise it is free to walk the grounds and check out the antique shop).

Photographer's Dream

Hot Sam’s has gained popularity as a place where professional photographers shoot clients against the eclectic props. People tour the grounds like they would at a hollywood set, and local groups, schools and residents rent out the pieces for theatrical productions or parties.

Everything is for sale, and negotiations can hinge on whether Hood likes a buyer’s attitude. “A lot of people don’t know the story behind this place. They are in question as to what is going on here,” Hood said. “They’ve never been to a place like this, they’ve never had the occasion to walk the grounds of anything that is like this. They are in awe.”
