  • I just love these little guys...if you forgot to bring peanuts to feed them, just buy them in the gift shop. If you're planning on coming, bring your own unsalted peanuts, it'll be cheaper.
  • Loved this place! Definitely a must do when you're out in the area! Quick stop, fun for all ages!!!
  • This is absolutely a must visit location! This place is crawling with cute little prairie dogs! There are tons of them and they will just sit there for hours watching you! At times they may even come up close to you
