We spent a week in the area and spent an entire day exploring this park. There is so much to see and do that you could easily spend much longer to really explore all it has to offer.

Beautiful scenery that include woods, fields, plains, streams, lakes and lots of animal. You can hike, bike or just sit, relax and take it all in.

We were there the day after the bison roundup, so most were penned into an area allowing for us to see hundreds at one time. We also saw a few that didn't get caught up in it which was kind of nice to see them naturally. And the donkeys were a hoot. They can be pretty aggressive wanting you to feed them as they block the road, but they were fun to watch.

Definitely recommend a visit to the great park!!!

The drive thru this park is amazing to say the least! We saw buffalo, antelope, deer and prairie dogs. Being in the off season, we were able to stop, take our time and take pictures and enjoy to animals.

I wasn’t expecting to see so many animals and boy did I see some! I came across a whole bunch of buffalo, deer and prairie dogs. Just incredible overall!

We had a nice drive through the park and there was no one collecting fees. Saw lots of wildlife. The only disappointment was the road was closed to the Needle because of a forecast of bad weather in 2 days.

This area was probably my favorite in the Black Hills. The scenery, twists and turns of the roads, rocks and boulders, wildlife, tunnels, trees, etc. were so enjoyable. I had no idea even after researching the area what we were going to see. We had so much fun driving around especially on the wildlife loop. We saw many bison and of course the donkeys. Luckily I read to bring some apples to fed them and they really enjoyed them. Don't miss this area!
