Like most of the rest of the area, but with a fence around it, a sign, and a fee

I have never really been able to see what others see in this place. It is basically the untouched Panhandle terrain (which has a sort of rugged beauty that grows on you after a... read more

There is literally nothing here. It's a waste of time. You can see better nature, and plants in Palo Duro Canyon, or anywhere in the country. On my visit the employee were arguing with one another. Super unprofessional and not with your time.

If you love to learn about the wild side of nature, you'll enjoy this little park. It was free last time I visited, just walked on the trail and explored with some friends. Definitely will br back if I can. Maybe this Friday for the live music and art event! Great for families and nature buffs. Watch out for the... More

If your in Amarillo and looking for a little different activity, stop by Wildcat Bluff. Easy to get to and beats the mall and crowds. Enjoy short walks and animal interactions that you normally would never see.

We arrived 2PM - buildings locked and no notices about when they would be open. Another man arrived and told us that no fee was needed and he continued to go for a hike. We proceeded to follow a trail - no signs or maps for a long time and finally one directed us back to the area where we... More

I have never really been able to see what others see in this place. It is basically the untouched Panhandle terrain (which has a sort of rugged beauty that grows on you after a number of years here.) It's a nice place for a stroll, but you can use the biking/jogging trail adjacent to Soncy next to it for free... More

The wildcat bluff area is a great way to spend an afternoon. We went for an overnight school trip. They let the kids (and adults!) sleep with the snakes and other reptiles. Needless, to say, I didn't get much sleep. We also got to pet a skunk (who had been de-scented) and see an owl (that had not)

This place is rundown and overgrown with weeds. It's also just not informational or worth your time. There is no "exhibits". You could walk outside and get the same amount of information and experience without paying an exorbitant fee.

Ranger station was closed but we had a lovely 2hr roam through the countryside. Wear walking shoes as terrain is a bit overgrown in places. I would like the Rangers to keep the paths a bit clearer as we went down the Prarie Dog trail and had to turn round and choose another path as that one was too overgrown,... More

I actually have not been there for awhile, I would go back though. Pretty obvious the people care about the critters they keep and I love that.

Seen this on Trip Advisor and wanted to take a break from driving. Walked the short path to stretch our legs. Nice to see nature. If going for a longer trip make sure to take your water bottle!
