The butterfly house is located on the campus. Check out the website for the many classes offered for children. It is a beautiful setting for pictures. Sertoma Park is here also with a large picnic area. There is a lake, all kinds of wildlife can be found at different time of the day. It is a tranquil setting.

This is a nice stop to stretch & get some exercise. The gardens were nice. We took the long walk around the area, there is a nice wooden bridge over the pond that leads to a relaxing walk by the prairie grass. The visitor's center has a small aquarium & small walk through display of local wildlife.

Our family stopped here for a stretch break on our way to the Black Hills, and had a lot of fun! The girls (both in their 20s) had more fun than the little kids in the play area, playing inside the giant fish, taking a roll at "Snakes and Ladders" (life-size chutes and ladders), exploring the gardens and outdoor play area, and seeing some fun wildlife. It was great fun and free, just wish it wasn't so far off the interstate. We were disappointed to find out that the butterfly exhibit was separate and costs to get in, despite it being advertised on the brochure as part of Outdoor Campus. Next time we'll have to do more there!

The Outdoor Campus is a great place to get active. My wife and I saw a brochure in a travel stop and with the admission price of free, we thought, why not. There was a motorcycle rally of sorts going on the day we visited, but the majority of them were crowding the parking lot and lobby, so the actual trails were pretty clear. Many of the trails are not marked, making it harder to know where you are, but I liked it. The entire space was inviting and calming. I loved it.

The Outdoor Campus is a great place to take the kids when you need a change of scenery. The indoor activities are fun and the kids love just taking their time exploring outside. We've done classes through the Outdoor Campus as well and always enjoy ourselves. The staff is amazing and helpful. You really can't go wrong with a visit.
