  • I love being able to see both bison and elk at such close distances but the park itself is lacking in the number of animals. Again I have to measure that against the proximity to a major city far from...  more »

  • Great place, conveniently located so close to the town. Always the best place to go for wonderful Bison or Elk pictures. Wonderful picnic areas and the park is well maintained. This place can be a all day family thing or you can just have a single drive around (may take around 1 h) to enjoy wild life and nature, then get back to your busy schedule.
  • Been here a few times and often bring out if state visitors here too. Whatever the season it’s always a great place to visit, and you usually get close up to the bison and the Elk, as well as smaller wildlife. It’s well maintained for visitors without feeling like it a city park, there is a real feel of wilderness about the place.
  • This is a nice little gem in West County. It's a bit of frontier Missouri preserved. They have elk and American Bison, both of which are nice to the area, living in their natural habitat. Lots of trails and places to have picnics. Be careful, the animals are not in cages; people have been injured by getting too close. But, it's not really dangerous is you respect the animals space.
  • This is a great place right off the highway to have a quick picnic or just passed sometime. Just also a walking trail on the elk side of the park. There is also the wild bird sanctuary which is also a great place to enjoy. They have Eagles owls Hawks and vultures and also a few other birds.
  • My favorite place to hike. There are beautiful elk and deer and buffalo on the side of the road. Great place for the he family. Then 10 minute up the road is the world Bird Sanctuary. Both are Free
