  • A National Park just an hour+ from the Dallas Fort Worth area. Most north central Texans don't even know about this place yet. It's very cool! They found the remains of 19 Columbian Mammoths. Go check it out.
  • We had a lot of fun at this a place. We home school so we were able to learn about all kinds to f stuff. It's so cool to walk around these grounds and know that these were walking around the same places as us a long time ago.
  • What a great treasure for Waco! Our guide Dava was a wealth of knowledge and had a passion for these awesome pachyderms. The dig and bones as they lay tell such an neat story of life back in Ice Age. We will definitely be back with the rest of the family.
  • Very cool and ranger answered every question or found answers when she wasn't sure (only two she wasn't sure out of the hundreds asked). Amazing preservation and explanations.
  • Educational and unique. The guides are very informative and knowledgeable. It's a good family experience and great for older kids but small ones get bored after the first few minutes. They like the bones but the educational information is too advanced for children over 8. The gift shop has lots of fun stuff for the younger ones though. It's a great event for adults too!
