We had visited Benezette to see the elk several years ago. It was a great experience, but I could see how the residents of the town might be annoyed with the constant 10mph traffic and visitors pulling into their driveways and yards to see the elk. This visitors center was a tremendous improvement with large open food plots to attract elk and a wide variety of wildlife. Keep your eyes scanning the woods as you will see wildlife throughout your stay (we saw deer, elk and turkey during our short stay.) The center is beautiful with a great variety of informational displays to entertain our family of adults and 9-13 year olds. Well planned and maintained paths to viewing areas and an option for a horse drawn wagon ride that takes you through fields. Elk are most likely to be viewed one hour after sunrise and one hour before sunset - PLAN YOUR TRIP AROUND THESE VIEWING TIMES. You may see an occasional elk otherwise, but the big groups can be more reliably viewed at sunrise and sunset.
