We really enjoyed our visit, from the educational presentations to meeting the amazing buffalo face to face.
This was a fun place to hear from Teddy Roosevelt and Wyatt Earp then feed bison, followed by a dinner with more entertainment. Staff was incredibly helpful and polite. Will definitely return again for the fun!
