No wildlife but an ok stop to stretch our legs. Don’t know if I would go out of my way to come here as a waypoint but I can see the lure if you wanted to camp and hike.

A beautiful drive but no action today. We were there about 1:00pm and didn’t see anything. At times the brush is high beside the road blocking the view. We’ll try again later in the day next time.

Recently visited for a second time. Didn't see much on this trip but a couple elk and one bison. It's a nice stop if you're in the area but I'd like to see restrooms available here or a way to re-enter for the day if you've already paid but need to leave for a toddler to potty. $5 isn't much, but if there isn't much activity and no restrooms to use while waiting around awhile for the animals, it seems a waste.

We stopped here on a whim and it was the best decision we had made all day. It's amazing how close you can get to the elk and bison - truly breathtaking!
