I love stopping here to view the cervidae. If the elk are not near the parking lot, go back to Otsego, turn right, then right again onto 7th and go into the DPS yard where they often hang out under the trees. You can get good photos through the fence. I have heard the big bulls bellow which is quite special. It's just cool to see them close up. Please don't feed them.
