  • I grew up going here. It's beautiful - serene during "off" days and cheerfully bustling as a replica 1800s town during events. I will say that there's a bit of a walk to get to it, but you get to walk past the park's buffalo habitat. Go during an event, take a little cash to buy some candy or a souvenir from the General Store, and enjoy.
  • Historic fun things to look at, plus it's beautiful scenery. Always clean and well maintained. Lots of walking and moderate hills.
  • Nice replica of an 1800's town. Be prepared to walk. Open all day from dawn to dusk
  • Fun place to explore. My kids and I loved it.
  • Really beautiful place to walk around and/or take photos. Love the history and the upkeep. Seeing the bison is exciting as well!
