  • This was my biggest disappointment when I arrived in Lubbock. Can not describe it, you have to see it to beleive that the name is much bigger than what it really is. A few holes in ground ... that is ...  more »
  • Read about this from a brochure from the hotel. Stopped by with a bag of celery and enjoyed an hour of feeding and watched these little guys. A unique area that was fun stop. Kids would really like it...  more »
  • Up close and personal with the history of saving an important animal in the ecosystem. Be sure to bring along celery, carrots or Cheetos to feed them. They wag their tails, bark, and scurry around eat...  more »

  • My wife and I like coming here to feed the prairie dogs. They like roots and plants, so we typically bring a bag of baby carrots. I've seen people throw them celery too and they seem to enjoy. Go on a sunny day mid morning, they typically will be out eating then. A great activity for younger kids. Also, don't bring your family dog, the prairie dogs don't like it.
  • So awesome seeing all the little babies running around but the prairie dogs looked like they were starving. Even the babies were fighting over anything they thought was edible. A lot of the babies had scars all over them. When we first got there we were the only ones then a car pulled up next to us and when they got out they let their dogs out which is more than ok until they put their dogs inside the prairie dog exhibit and they were chasing all the prairie dogs.. Signs should be posted for people like this thinking its ok.
  • Bring healthy grains or greens. They'll love you for it! It's a fun visit.
  • The best place in Lubbock! So fun!
  • It was cute, interesting, outside and free! You can't really ask for much else. My daughter had a great time observing and learning about them.
