Roberts Prairie Dog Town reviews
Highly recommend visiting Badlands via Sage Creek Road it’s all gravel for 20 miles from Hwy 44 from Rapid City but you see a ton of Bison and Prairie Dogs, you actually see a lot of prairie dogs... more »
It was kind of muddy so had to pay attention where you were walking, but a very fun experience, as a first timer at 32 years old! You buy a bag of 'prairie dog food' at the store (it was cheap) and... more »
Prairie dogs yelling at you from everywhere. We saw lots of buffalo chips and hoofprints in the hardened mud. Also learned that some little foxes eat the dogs and take over their mounds. more »
The prairie dogs are fun to watch! Once you know what they are, you'll notice them in other places and states. Some tourists got too close --- even though they had telephoto lens. The prairie dogs are more active and comfortable when you give them space and wait patiently. They seem to be out all day.
This is worth the drive on the dirt road! The prairie dogs were so cute and there were >100 of them! It looked like there were adolescents playing when we visited in late August. Also on the drive to the prairie dog town, we saw 2 bighorn sheep and a bison (e didn't see any on the main, paved park roads). We took the dirt road in a sedan car with no problems.
Can't you people read. DON'T FEES THE WILD LIFE!!! Also who let's their kid kick dirt down into the prairie dog holes and giggles about it. Would have been really cool if not for the ignorant people.
Great spot to see prairie dogs up close. While we were there, we saw dozens of prairie dogs with their babies. Just be careful as you drive in the area, as they aren't afraid to go out in the street! Have your camera ready, as it is a great photo opportunity.
Really great. The prairie dogs were active and fun to see interacting. We could even see buffalo in the distance, would definitely recommend.
