Went here for my 17th birthday and it was amazing! the cost, only $10, was very cheap for what you get. You are driven into the middle of the herd and get to observe them in their natural habitat while learning about them, their history, and native american history. Definitely a must do, I can't wait to go back!

She made us the most delicious breakfast. I would highly recommend this to anybody for a getaway that... More

Rode in back of pickup truck through grazing herd. Saw young and old buffalo. The guide was very thorough in his explanations of how the preserve was conceived, the history of the animals, Indian lore regarding the animals, and very good at answering any questions about buffaloes. An enjoyable experience!! Suitable for young and old.

Came across this place while stopping for gas. Very authentic & a great place to take kids to. There is also a small gift shop to visit. The guide there was extremely knowledgable about the bison and even taught some Indian language. The tour was $10 a person and all proceeds go towards the bison.

We were unsure of visiting here but very glad we did. They are close Monday and Tuesday. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and got us up close to the bison. They have over 230 bison and they walked all around us and close to the wagon. We even got to see several babies and 1 was only 2 days... More

We were staying in nearby Angola, IN, read about the Preserve on our hotel website, and decided to check it out. Boy were we glad we did! It seemed like we were out in the wild west and definitely not on northern... More

Enjoyed the Bison tremendously. Not an every day right you get to see. Right up next to the Bison while riding in an uncovered wagon. Very interesting information. Great tour guide. $10. Per person. Be sure to take your camera
