This is a cool place to visit. It is very interesting and the interpretive panels are excellent, providing insight into the landform, how Indians used it to obtain buffalo for 2000 years, and how important it was to them. A short walk to the viewing...More

This was a great park. Even though you must take a gravel road to get there, it is not a bad drive and it is worth it. I like things off the beaten path. It was not crowded at all. Only one other car. An...More

Wonderfully isolated & peaceful park. Must note, though, we noticed the "Beware of Rattlesnakes" warning only at the end of our visit. Never saw the first sign of one, though. Amazingly beautiful & peaceful spot with a nice interpretive kiosk. Well worth the detour.

We enjoyed an interesting visit to The Madison Buffalo jump - a high limestone cliff used by Native Americans to stampeded herds of bison. Impressive views of the Madison River Valley as seen from the top of the jump. Interpretive displays onsite.
