  • Years ago I had been here. When my husband and I were passing through, we decided to stop as he had never been. It truly did not disappoint. We saw bear, bison, deer, mountain sheep and more. A must v...  more »
  • We went towards mid day during the summer and I wasn't expecting to see much given the heat. I was pleasantly surprised. Up top, we saw some elk and bison, but unexpectedly saw a herd of elk cavorting...  more »
  • It is by chance that we stumbled upon this park which has been one of our best experiences in Montana. We have seen several bears (babies and adults), Antelope, bison and caribou. The scenery is absolutely amazing. If you made one of the two small hikes proposed, don't forget your bear spray. We have done a mama bear encounter on the Hill!

  • Love this place! I've been here 3 times and well worth the few hours to tour the entire range. Be prepared for steep overlooks along the one way road that switchbacks along the way. Bison, antelope, mule deer, elk and various birds can be seen. To get the most out of wildlife viewing you must drive the entire route. The view of the Mission valley on the pinnacle point is incredible.
  • It is an interesting stop but be aware NO MOTORCYCLES are allowed on to drive the loop. You must be in a car or enclosed vehicle. Apparently this is for safety reasons in case the animals start to charge. Funny there is no such worry in Yellowstone which has bison roaming on the roads through the park.
  • Very cool place! My wife had never seen a Bison/Buffalo before. We did a self-guided driving tour and saw a lot of animals. We were able to get really close to one!
  • Always enjoy myself when visiting the bison range, awesome place to take pictures of the wildlife. Be on the lookout for "Picnic Bull" the big bull elk that likes to hang out in the picnic area, providing good photo ops.
  • Really nice national park. I saw group of Deer and bison. I watch video here about the history of bison and national park. It worth a lot. Ticket is not expensive too. Nice place
