We brought the kids on this stop, and I was worried we wouldn’t see any prairie dogs, but I was so wrong. They were everywhere!

Free and delightful. We are animal lovers and we were able to sit on the ground and let them come up to us. They like corn and peas. We sat still on the side where there was no wall and they would come within a couple of feet of us. We got great pictures. They are so funny with all of there little social behaviors. Worth a stop.

Adorable attraction to see prairie dogs up close. My kids thought they were so cute. Do not go over the barrier to their home-- it will freak them out.

Great place to stop for a rest. The Prairie dogs were adorable! They aren’t enclosed anywhere, you see them all around, popping in and out of the holes. I arrived close to sunset and there were very few other people. Wished I had arrived earlier to spend more time. Kids would love this place.

So much bigger and better than I anticipated. The dogs are everywhere. A great place to stretch your legs before you get back on the road! Must see in Lubbock.
