  • Lone Elk is amazing!! I go all the time because it is close to my house. There’s no guarantee you will see anything, but it’s better the earlier you go. I see animals about 85% of the time- bison, elk, raccoons, deer, and squirrels!!! So fun and beautiful!! PLEASE DONATE IF YOU GO!
  • Hands down one of the best parks in Saint Louis County. No guarantee of seeing any of the animals but going in the morning increases your chances (8am-9am is usually the best time). The park has a calming driving route as well as a hiking trail. The park is free but has a donation box if you’re feeling generous :)
