  • If you like views, hiking and the outdoors, scenic viewpoints and roughing it than this is your place. No light pollution. Pit toilets in sturdy buildings. It's a great place to see wildlife of all sorts. Visit the historic ranch and have a meal at the island restaurant.
  • This place was awesome. See the Bison and Antelope roam so closely was a nice surprise. In addition to the views.....I mean definitely a must visit. Even the drive to the island is scenic. We happened to see a Coyote crossing at a shallow point on the lake from the roadway to the island. The driving trails are well maintained. We didn't have time to hike, but plan on returning to hike in the future!
