For Groups: Prairie Adventure Guided Group Tour

Get to know the prairie that is right outside our door in a whole new way. On our ride across the plains, participants watch for wildlife in the landscape, from prairie dogs to pronghorn antelope or birds of prey, beneath the great stretching sky.  With stops at our Sod Homes and Cheyenne Camp, your group will experience what it was like to be a homesteader and a Cheyenne Indian living on the prairie in the 1800s. $14 per person.
