“A short fun trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

Prairie Dog Town is a Prairie Dog Town of roughly an acre in size. There is information about Prairie Dog Life and the tunnels they build, as well as a historical marker about the man who created Prairie Dog Town. It is free to visit, won't take more than 15 minutes before you are bored. There is a short wall (about two feet) high that surrounds the town.

“cuties”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

The prairie dogs are cute to watch and taking kids is fun. They aren't so great on the open range however, as they tear up the ground.

“Cute critters”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Saw everything there was to see in five minutes. The priarie dogs are cute, but there weren't many that were close enough to see. Might have been more fun if it weren't so cold the day we went.

“Who wouldn't want to watch/feed p-dogs?”

This place is free and especially worthwhile if you need to entertain children. The park nearby offers a great picnic venue.
