Fantastic dogs! You will never see as much "fun" in such a small package as you will here. They are too cute, and like grandchildren, you can enjoy them, and leave them!!

I recently brought some international visitors to prairie dog town. They were surprised to find what is literally a prairie full of rodents. The prairie dogs were making lots of noise, which was cute. We enjoyed hanging out for a while before we went to toss the Frisbee at McKenzie park. I'm not sure it's worth the trip (except maybe...

On each trip that we make to Lubbock, we set aside some time to visit the P-dogs. Watching their interactions is relaxing and adorable. It can be difficult to find for a first time visitor.

This is a place to bring young kids or your sweetheart for about 20 minutes of entertainment. The prairie dogs are more active in the cooler parts of the day, I've noticed and they enjoy eating the baby carrots we bring to throw their way. The carrots are great because they're cheap and you can chunk them about 30 yards... More

Prairie Dog Town is a wonderful place to go when you need life's stress to melt away. As you watch the little critters run around and interact with each other, it's impossible not to smile and laugh. Their "bark" sounds more like a bird chirping and is quite amusing to hear, especially when many of them sound off. Look for... More

Hot, and prairie dogs were quite a ways away. They really didn't do anything. I wouldn't waste my time.

I totally recommend. Praire dogs are so cute and you get to see them very well. We even saw owls in the distance. The entrance is free and it is located in McKenzie Park.

Road trip through town and had to stop. Quick 15 min visit to throw some peanuts and check out the cute animals. Kids got a kick out of it. Worth a stop if you have time.
