  • My family and I rented the nice cabin at the McPherson state lake adjacent to it, and everything was great! Great to see the bison roaming freely! Trying to book again, and realized didn't leave a review last time.
  • What an amazing morning to be put at Maxwell. Fresh snow and elk, what more can you ask for. I took a quick trip out there this morning before work. I guess one of the perks of working from home right now and only being 20 minutes away. The elk were very accommodating this morning. I didn't see any bison, but I really wasn't looking for them.
