We took the Bison tour with Amber- she was so knowledgeable and super enthusiastic. We learned a lot about the prairie and bison in general. Don't miss out on this tour, highly recommended.

We stayed here twice, one on the way out to devil's tower, and then returned on our way home. Both times were wonderful. Beautiful scenery.
