Rode in back of pickup truck through grazing herd. Saw young and old buffalo. The guide was very thorough in his explanations of how the preserve was conceived, the history of the animals, Indian lore regarding the animals, and very good at answering any questions about buffaloes. An enjoyable experience!! Suitable for young and old.

Came across this place while stopping for gas. Very authentic & a great place to take kids to. There is also a small gift shop to visit. The guide there was extremely knowledgable about the bison and even taught some Indian language. The tour was $10 a person and all proceeds go towards the bison.

We were unsure of visiting here but very glad we did. They are close Monday and Tuesday. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and got us up close to the bison. They have over 230 bison and they walked all around us and close to the wagon. We even got to see several babies and 1 was only 2 days... More

We've travelled I69 past Fremont, IN hundreds of times but never knew about The Wild Winds Buffalo Preserve. We were staying in nearby Angola, IN, read about the Preserve on our hotel website, and decided to check it out. Boy were we glad we did! It seemed like we were out in the wild west and definitely not on northern... More

Enjoyed the Bison tremendously. Not an every day right you get to see. Right up next to the Bison while riding in an uncovered wagon. Very interesting information. Great tour guide. $10. Per person. Be sure to take your camera

Too much money for the tour, $10.00 per person no matter the age, we were driven out into the field right into the herd of buffalo which made them move out of the way of the truck, sat in the truck listening to the guide brag about himself, (as the buffalo by this time had wandered off) his life history...

Fun, unique experience. Most people have never seen buffalo before, so it is quite an experience. Friendly staff.

The $10 fee for the tour is well worth the money. You get a really up close view of the bison (not buffalo), and Dan, our tour guide, was very informative. The tour runs at least an hour, and it is pretty cool to be able to see these majestic animals from just a few feet away!

We drove over an hour out of our way to hit this place on our way home from vacation because of all the great reviews on here. Have to say... the tour wasn't so much of a tour as driving you out to the field and just sitting there. I expected more for the price. We drove out to the... More
