Great story how Clapp family wanted to preserve the prairie dog. Make sure you bring carrots or something for the little guys to eat. They sure are cute!

Better than a trip to the zoo! These little guys were quite entertaining just being themselves. It's fun to be able to be so close. Most fun you can have for free on a Wednesday evening in Lubbock.

Went here in summer before school started and they were so cute! The noises they make and the way they stare at you is adorable. Not something that takes very long, but if you're board one afternoon give it a try!😊

Prairie Dog Town is a fun short little visit. Nice place to bring out of town visitors for a taste of West Texas.

The kids will love it, you may not be so excited, especially on a hot day. The signage is not good once you get into the park, my suggestion is once you get to the perimeter fence of the golf course kinda follow it around...More

Only takes a few minutes to come see these adorable critters. And they even have a SnapChat filter! Watch out in parking lot--they have dug under walls and have holes everywhere. So cute!!!
