This selfish, taking only environment... wanted to charge underprivileged kids from their own community, a $5,00 fee to come and hangout for the morning. Bison Poop!!! I say it again Bison Sheeeeeeeeiiiiiiiiiit!

Here's your chance to get closer to a buffalo that you'll probably get anywhere else. Ride the only privately owned interstate railroad (reasonable fee). And then have lunch or dinner all on the same premises. Well stocked gift shop with friendly staff. A place to avoid during Cheyenne Frontier Days (last full week in July) unless you're really, really into... More

Lots of Bison in this state. We stopped for the campground as it was recommended as a good place for the night, but it turned out to be just another trailer park where many occupants looked like permanent residents. Sites were somewhat tightly packed, but did have full hookups. OK for a one night stay.

We didn't stay here, it was just a spontaneous thing we decided to do. We did the train tour plus we walked around the grounds to see some of the animals. The whole staff was very friendly. All the ranch workers that we came across were also very nice. We felt very welcome and comfortable. The kids loved the train... More

I cannot recommend Terry Bison Ranch enough. We totally enjoyed our visit and early dinner at the Senator’s Steakhouse. You must try the bison short ribs they were absolutely amazing. People must keep in mind that this is a working ranch. All of the staff that we encountered were very friendly and very knowledgeable. John the train operator really took... More

We are currently spending the night after reviewing the location on Passport America. They accept the PA for one night and we were told there is no spot available past our one night. The clerk was not very friendly and we left the office with a map to get to our "spot". The pull through sites are not very level... More

We were so glad we stopped at the ranch. We had just missed the 12:00 train, but the trading post was a great place to wait for the 1:30 train. They have a huge stuffed jackalope and a huge stuffed bison to climb up on for pictures, along with lots of souvenirs to look at and possibly purchase. Our 'engineer/guide'... More

We arrived at 4:30pm after a long day's drive. I checked the website and called but can't determine what operating hours are for all the activities. The lady at the gift shop doesn't like her job. She was slow and unhelpful. The place is in desperate need of repair and upkeep. I wouldn't let my kid on the rusty old... More

I had read about this attraction prior to leaving on our road trip and plugged it into our GPS. It isn't far from Cheyenne and worth the trip off the main highway. We had time before our train ride to visit the souvenir shop and to look around at the other animals on this ranch: horses, cows (even Scottish Highland... More

Nice setting on a ranch, decent restaurant on the grounds with very personable wait staff. No trees at RV sites. Not much space between sites and we had a 30-foot pole with a very bright light atop it that was beside our bedroom window. We did not stay for the train trip our bison feeding, which I am sure kids... More
