“Wild Life Refuge & Museum”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

A very interesting area. Lots of wild life including buffalo, deer, elk, birds etc and their museum shows why the arsenal is there before it was a wild life park.

“Very cool-nature and history combined!”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

I live near here and actually drive by it almost daily (the area is huge!) so one day, my family and I decided to stop. It is really, really cool! In our area are LOTS of birds of prey, like red-tailed hawks and I have even seen some bald eagles. They have a herd of buffalo and a lake and the education center has some great interactive exhibits with the history of the place when bombs and artillery were made there, as well as the extensive clean-up they had to go through. Really enjoyed it and will be back with a picnic soon.

“Great for Families and Groups of young people”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

Took my cub scout pack on a field trip and they had a lot of fun. The visitor's center had a little program where they had to answer a sheet of questions (they could find the answers within the info in the visitor's center). They then got to choose a prize if they finished. Helped keep the boys focused on learning rather than just running around and being crazy. We then went on a drive where we were going to hike a trail to find some bison. We found bison along the side of the road, but we could find that trail. I will admit that I am directionally challenged, but I honestly think their map could've been better and more descriptive.
