  • It was a great place to go for a drive with my kids. We were surrounded by bison at one point - in a good way. Overall, it was an amazing experience. They have guided bus tours on certain days.
  • It's an amazing place close to home. Take your time if you're in a hurry you'll miss seeing what you go there to see. people please respect the rules animals and let everybody enjoy it. Can't tell you how many times people get pissed off because they don't see anything. And I've been in front of them or back of them and there was stuff right off the road and just overlooked it. Slowdown and look .
  • It's a great stop for families. It's free and fun for the kids. There are scavenger hunts, catch and release fishing(fee), bison watching, lots of trails and even a ferret exhibit. The lake trails are neat with lots of docks to see the fish and birds in the area. There is an exhibit inside the visitor center with animals such as coyotes, life sized bison and lots of history items that were part of the arsenal.
  • What a great place close to town. Good for taking kids out. I dont really understand the negative reviews here. It's a free resource that's good for hikes, seeing wildlife and enjoying the open country close to the city.
  • After reading about it on there website, I was expecting more from it. I don't know if I wasn't very lucky but I only saw 3 Buffalos and that's it not a deer not a bird nothing else :( oh well at least now I know what it really is.
