That was so much fun to see those critters. It was interesting to know the origin of the park. It would be an awesome place for children. Next time I'll make sure I bring some hay with me. They are adorable.

If you want to see prairie dogs this is the place. They have a lot of burrows. When you're far away they come out. We bought some popcorn and fed them. Very cool to see if you have never seen any before.

I just dont get this place. Who wants to watch little rats eat and dig holes in the ground. These guys are destructive to the ground.

I took 2 grandchildren to visit Prairie Dog Town. They seemed to enjoy it. They watched the Prairie Dogs dart about and go in and out of their underground homes. There is no charge and it only take a few minutes to see all the...More
