  • Got a few good pictures of some bull elk. There was a large group of females and little ones. Plenty of parking with pit potties.  more »
  • I saw more elk jere in one location then I have in my entire life. They get pretty close to the road and there are little birds that sit on their behinds. It's so cute!  more »

  • On our out bound trip we stopped and saw many elk - a real thrill. On the return trip there were none to see - must depend on weather, time of day, and grazing patterns. The viewing area facility is excellent with adequate parking away from the highway, convenient trailer turn-around, an elevated viewing platform, and out houses. 5 stars!
  • Such a beautiful stop on a beautiful highway! There was a huge herd of elk and multiple osprey around when we stopped. A restroom was also provided (outhouse), which appeared to be well maintained. We will definitely be returning!
  • Elk are hidden by tall grasses and marshy creek but if your camera has a good battery keep the lens ready. Excellent opportunity for those with patience.
  • Great fun for kids & grandkids. Lots of giant elk to see fairly close up. Beware to honor the boundaries. 0 Elk are wild animals. Great idea to stay on your side of the fence. Good photo opportunities.
  • Clean facilities. Large area to turn large vehicles around, such as a tractor/trailer. Nice large herd of Elk seen often. Usually near mid to late afternoon.
