“Great place to see cute critters”

Roberts Prairie Dog Town

Reviewed August 1, 2013

This is one of the best prairie dog towns in the area. Lots of them were out of their holes and running around. One was even barking a warning to the others about the approaching humans. We got a great video of him. The buffalo herd was grazing in the field behind them. Worth a stop to see these cute little critters.

there appears to be many prairie dogs but they run for cover as soon as you try to take pictures or follow the path to walk out there to get closer. But i would stop, maybe you would have better luck

Spoiled Prairie Dogs to feed peanuts too. Better for little kids, fun to take a picure in from of the giant prairie dog.

We stopped at this view point area, and at first, we were not sure about what we were supposed to see. But as we walked a bit and looked around, we realized there were prairie dogs peeking out of the ground everywhere! It was really quite fun to see them poking their heads up, and as we knew what to look for, we suddenly were seeing so many of them! Definitely a worthwhile place to stop on your drive through the badlands

The prairie dog town is a must see for anyone with children visiting the Badlands. Even my teenagers were fascinated with the "pups" and were interested in the short lesson the ranger shared with us explaining their behaviors, barks and their homes. Please heed the signs saying "do not feed prairie dogs" as it does pose a danger for them.
