“Elk, deer and buffalo---oh my!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is a drive through "park" where wild game roam free. Best of all, there's no fee for it! Just jump in your car and head west on highway 44 a little past 270 and you'll see the signs to the park.

“Good Cheap Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Depending on the season, some of the animal lie right by the driving path. The World Bird Sanctuary is also near by and a cool place to visit.

“Wonderful place to visit”
5 of 5 stars 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!
