I took 2 grandchildren to visit Prairie Dog Town. They seemed to enjoy it. They watched the Prairie Dogs dart about and go in and out of their underground homes. There is no charge and it only take a few minutes to see all the activity.

Great fun for visitors and guests. Just watch how busy these little fellas are! Kids love to watch them run around, popping up here and there. Our grandchildren never miss a stop here when they're in town.

Everything we go to Lubbock we make a stop to see the Prairie Dogs. It is very relaxing watching them. I you have kids bring some small carrots to throw out to the p- dogs. It is cool how they pick them up and ear. them.

Kind of hard to find, but right next to the golf course (like caddy shack) hundreds of prairie dogs. Living as I expect they did in the wild, along side other wildlife and beautiful flowers.

No I didn't see any of those little cute prairie dogs around the park. Drove thru there very slowly, mostly very dry bland land with a little river going thru it.

Fascinating! On the outskirts of Lubbock and well worth the drive. So entertaining to watch and nicely kept park.

We have been here a few times and each time is an adventure. It is a small combo of rides for a nice day. It reminded me of a carnival as a kid. The park is fun for the family if you don't expect a huge theme park. We took it as a leisurely taste of fun for all.
