“A surprise on the prairie!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We were very surprised as we were driving along the prairie and stopped here. We had a great time with our kids exploring the area. However, we were there in the summer and there were A LOT of bugs. We didn't get out of the car for long because the mosquito were so bad. We apparently don't know how to read a map because we became very lost while we were driving through the area.

“Birds still in the the sky, but no water in the area.”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Plenty birds of prey. Great views if water was present I am sure more birds would be seen. About 14 species in about 40 mins. Was great in winter, want to go back in spring. Must stop by tge wetland center first. Get a map checklist and maybe a field guide.

“Low on water but still a good bet.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Low on water due to low rains. Still had a good bird list. Be ready for the smell, it is a salt marsh with very low water level.

“The Bottoms are dry now because of the lack of rain but the birds still come to this area. Very beautiful fall viewing.”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

This area around Hoisington and Great Bend are full of fall colors this time of year. A nice get away from the traffic of larger cities. Not far from other points of interest.
