I've lived in the area most of my life and not been here. Most people don't know it exists. Which is really nice. We were there over spring break and although the camp sites were mostly full, the trails were not crowded. We stayed in...More

This park is a gem in the middle of nowhere. It is a well maintained and beautiful park. We were stunned by its beauty. The prairie dog colony and bison herd were truly pencils.

Dogs on leashes were on the trail. Also around campgrounds, yet be careful when in Prairie Dog town or around the bison herd.

You can enjoy swimming, fishing and no-wake boating in the small, 120-surface-acre Lake Theo. We didn't fish but several people were fishing from a nice fishing pier.
