The views and walking trails were amazing! The staff could have been a little more helpful. We were greeted half heartedly and weren't informed on what the park had to offer. We just kind of bumbled around reading signs that were posted, no extra guidance...More

This is the mother of all buffalo jumps. The interpretive center is excellent, and you can also hike up the pishkun, although it is quite hot in the summer with no shade. Be sure to check out the prairie dogs! (but don't get too close)

The actual cliffs don't look like much but if you take the time to walk up there and see the jump from the top it's really quite amazing. You can really imagine all the buffalo being forced over the edge, what a sight it must...More

Truly enjoyed coming to this site. Really gives you a great perspective and appreciation for the life native Americans led. If you are interested in western history this is a great place to go.

This is a wonderful small historic site. We learned so much in the short time we had to spend. Wonderful friendly guides add to the experience. Beautiful prairie vistas from the "jump".
