With no entry fee, you have little to lose other than time & petrol cruising through the park hoping that wildlife will be in sight. If you win, like we were lucky enough to do, a visit is well worthwhile. We saw many prarie dogs...

Tips about this business (2)

Know Before You Go

Contamination occurred in some areas because the military used a small portion of this site to produce chemical weapons and Shell Chemical Company used it to produce pesticides. Both entities have participated in a cleanup project, which is expected to last several more years.

The Extras

Special programs offer the opportunity to learn about fish and fish hatcheries, prairie dogs and ferrets, waterfowl migration, native plants and other wildlife. Groups can get tours by reservation during the week.
