“free and fun for the whole family”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Better than the TV shows about meerkats, these are real prairie dogs living large right under your nose. Digging, standing, chasing eachother and shouting now and then.

Such fun, you have to go!

“A relaxing vistit”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

A great opportunity to see these little guys. They run, appear to hold hands, bark, and watch us watch them. And nearby is a park for the kids.

“Good family time”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

It was interesting to learn about the prairie dogs and to be able to see them so close up. Does not take too long and the kids enjoyed feeding them.

“A short fun trip”
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.
