“Wonderful place to visit”
Review of Lone Elk Park

Lone Elk Park
Ranked #23 of 275 things to do in Saint Louis
Attraction details
Reviewed December 26, 2012

We are locals and we go here a few times a year. It is great to just drive through and see the Elk and Buffalo, visit the Nature center or have a picnic. We like to go here for Father's Day. It is worth the short drive from St. Louis!

The elk were just 5 feet from the car. We saw around 15 elk bucks, does, fawns. Pretty peacefull scenic loop drive, about 1/2 mile from Wild Bird Sanctuary another inteesting place to see. Both have free admission.

A leisurely drive among the...ELKS? The park is sort of like a wild animal park. A perimeter fence and cattle guard keep the elk inside, an inner fence and cattle guard isolate a buffalo herd. The elk are very tame, you can almost pet them (do not attempt this, however). Lots of fun.

Not only are you not allowed to walk your dogs here, but you also are not even allowed to drive through with dogs in the car. Know this before you make the trek out there during superhot weather to drive through in air conditioned comfort to see the elk.

It is a great place to stop for a picnic or a detour from St. Louis shopping. We try to guess how many animals we will see, then whomever is closest gets to pick where we go for ice cream.
