  • It’s cool to watch these little critters pop in and out of their homes constantly. You can see them without binoculars. M

  • The prairie dogs are the cutest little things ever! So glad that we stopped here! The views are incredible, and the prairie dogs peek out of their mounds and run all over. Very fun place!
  • This was an amazing pull off that allowed us to walk among the prairie dogs. They see you coming and they start sounding the alarms. Amazing experience! You should note that there is no facility or staff here and you have to drive an unpaved road to get here. You should also note that we saw more prairie dogs on the way to this stop than at the actual stop. There has to be tens of thousands of these cute little animals in the area. So definitely enjoy the whole journey and not just the endpoint.
