‪I traveled from Dallas, Texas just to visit Fighter's Heaven and I'm so happy I did! I've been a huge fan of Ali's since I was 10 or 11. Mick was absolutely amazing and Joe was a real sweetheart. I loved every single minute of my visit. I didn't expect to have such an emotional reaction to visiting the camp. I cried and cried and cried again. It will forever be a very special memory for me. I am sure I will be back! Sending love from Dallas :-)‬

‪We had the absolute pleasure to enjoy the magic of Muhammad Ali's training camp. Mick, the director, knows everything and loves to share the stories. Such a deep, personal and at the same time public persona. The more you learn about Ali, the more fascinating he is. We spent 2 hours in the glorious simplicity of mountains, log cabins and all things Ali. If you are a fan or just love history, please check it out. No entrance fee, but donations to non-profits of Ali's choice are welcome.‬

‪My sons and I planned this visit for Saturday, April 16th, the day after seeing Chaz Palminteri's "A Bronx Tale: One Man Show" in Morristown, NJ. We were lucky to see show #999 and even met the great Larry Holmes who was kind enough to chat with us after the show. Perhaps it was a pleasant encounter that foretold the magical visit the following day to Fighter's Heaven.

The drive to Orwigsburg, PA was tranquil. Despite an overcast day, we could see across the valley as we climbed the winding road to arrive at Fighter's Heaven. Greeted warmly by host Mick Stefanick, we walked through the campus, in awe. While it is the famous Fighter's Heaven training facility of the Greatest of All Time, Muhammad Ali, it is a moving experience.

Not just Muhammad Ali's training camp, it's a piece of American history.

We spent time in his cabin with preserved artifacts of the Champ complemented by short videos on the origin of the camp by the Champ himself. In each curated aspect, you could sense his presence, his aura, and his larger-than-life personality. Handwritten poetry, vintage black and white pictures with famous icons, and the calm serenity of the campus. It was easy to see why he chose to seclude himself in austerity to focus on his training.

The camp also showed his generous personality.

While the camp exuded the spartan conditions in which he trained hard and long, it also displayed the Champ's warmth and generosity. He set aside time to pray, reflect, and even welcomed curious wandering fans inside his kitchen to share a meal. Even though he was training, he still made time for his fans. With each encounter, you could tell he was leaving a positive impact as he bonded with all of them, young and old, joking around or having conversations.

"I'm going to show you how great I am!"

Mick Stefanick, who takes care of the campus on behalf of the Madden family, was a wonderful host and is perfectly suited for the job. As a retired teacher, he said the mission is to create a destination that will, for decades to come, remind some, and educate others, about the remarkable and inspirational life of Muhammad Ali - the athlete, the man, the greatest of all time - and the impact he had on the world.

Yes Champ, after spending time at Fighter's Heaven with my sons, you sure did show us! Thank you!‬

‪What a great place to visit, we truly could not believe how interesting this is to see. Mr Maden did a great thing in buying and restoring it. Unbelievable to see this and there no charge.‬

‪Absolutely a historical site.
Very up close and personal.
Mick, the director, couldn't have been more hospitable and knowledgeable.
Amazing and peaceful wrapped into one.
Drove 354 miles (one way) and worth every mile!
Tough to put into words how great it was. You have to see for yourself.‬

‪Definitely a place to go for Muhammad Ali fans, and all others. Easy to reach from I-78, about 15 minutes up the road from the Cabela's exit. Kudos to Mike Madden, John Madden's son, for buying the property and bringing the training camp back to life, and to Mick Stefanek, the Director there, for a great tour, including the historical context of Ali's life from 1960 to his death. All the original buildings from the 1970s are intact and carefully refurbished, and most of them are open to take a look. Videos of Ali in several of the buildings complement the tour. Hard to believe you are walking in the same space as the Greatest.‬

‪I went to tour the camp with my husband and cousin while in town for the weekend. The tour and information exceeded our expectations, and all I can say is ‘WOW’! A great deal of work has gone into restoring the camp, and it contains a lot of information, photos, videos, etc. covering Ali’s career. Although this can be a self-guided tour, Lynda provided a wealth of personal first-hand information that was outstanding and brought it all to life as her family was instrumental in bringing Ali to the area to create a training camp. She really should do a video about her experience and perspective to incorporate into the tour as she personally knew Ali, his family, the training staff, sparring partners, and other fighters! We all found her to be an invaluable part of the experience!

There is no admission charge and although donations are welcomed, they are subsequently given to charities.

It doesn’t matter whether or not you’re a boxing fan - this site is a must-see and has something that everyone can enjoy!‬

‪If you are a boxing or Muhummad Ali fan, this place is a must visit. This was Ali's training camp from '72-'80. You can go inside just about all building in the camp. The gym, kitchen, Ali's individual building, his family living quarters, and his Mosque. Staff here is super knowledgeable and friendly. We spent hours checking it out. Even climbed in the ring! This is open free to.the public, you just have to call to make a reservation on weekdays.‬

‪An absolute must see for any Ali fan or boxing fan in general. To call this place beautiful is an understatement. Mike Madden and his team have gone above and beyond restoring the cabins and the grounds to recreate the perfect original experience. Mick is a gracious host and is so knowledgeable about all aspects and details of the camp. He knows the history and story behind every building and artifact. Everything is hands on- and accessible to visitors. There are interactive videos throughout the camp showing footage of Ali that pertain to those specific areas of the camp. These videos bring you back to the 1970's and let you see the camp exactly how it was when Ali was there. I can't say enough about my amazing visit to Fighter's Haven and I recommend every boxing fan or Ali fan visit this place at LEAST once in their lifetime. It is the most peaceful, serenic place I have ever been.‬

‪What a great experience. What everyone has already written, well it's true. Mick and Linda are such a treat, so knowledgeable. The property has been restored so well you can feel the history. Thanks to all and everyone who has had a hand in making this project come to fruition. We will be back with family and friends.‬
