Let me start by saying that we have stayed here before and had a lot better experience. This time though it was not so good. The first spot we were given was completely flooded. The next spot was very narrow and to make matters worse we had to move a picnic table and someone's boots from the middle of the pad. We were jammed between what looked like workers trailers. Lots of junk. We should have left then, but were so tired we figured we could make it through one night. How wrong we were. At about 1:30 in the morning, we heard banging on the door of trailer next to us. A loud argument ensued for about 10 minutes. Not the end of the world but I don't think we'll stay there again. Maybe they shouldn't cram travelers in amongst the workers and more permanent guests. A little gravel in the flooded pull-thrus might also help. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects Passport America discount of 50%. This park is convenient and also has a very good restaurant on-site. You get a 10% food discount at check-in. We have always eaten there. But the park needs a serious cleanup effort. There is too much trash around and it appears no raking or general care is happening. The park had a major increase in permanent residents in the past 6 months and there are now more than 50. Dogs run loose and there is no night-time lighting. We have stayed here many times, but now feel uncomfortable with the atmosphere. In addition, the camping fees are too high for what is offered. 8 new improved sites are scheduled for 2015, but a general park makeover would be the best improvement. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

Price reflects Passport America discount for one night. This is a very unusual campground. It is a working bison ranch with a gravel campground with pull-through sites that are very close together. It appeared most of the campers were workers in the area. There are also some cabins for rent. They seem to have quite a few family activities in the summer. We had a FHU gravel pull-through site with 50 amp electric which was pretty level. The park is right off of I-25 so there is road noise. The WiFi was free, but pretty slow. We would stay here again for an overnight. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The campsite was more like a grassy parking lot and we were able to hear freeway noise, but the ranch was one of most memorable places we stayed. The store was nice to shop in, the bathrooms were clean. We rode horses and were able to go on a train and feed live bisons. You could fish if you wanted or do as we did and walk all over the ranch and look at the wonderful collection of animals. We spent little time at our RV site.

Fee reflects passport discount. At first I thought we were in the wrong place, resort has definitely seen better days. Seedy. In need of cleanup. First site assigned was so full of potholes we couldn't get level. Laundry cheap enough, but has bulbs missing and therefore difficult to see at night. It was only $20, but I would avoid next time. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

After reading the earlier reviews, we almost decided not to stay here. Glad we did, anyway. All sites are pull-throughs, a little narrow, but adequate. Most have a semblance of grass between sites. Rate I posted is the Passport America rate. All sites have full hook-ups. Check-in staff very friendly, we had no interaction with other staff. Lots of things for kids to see and do. Two restaurants on site. The park was dead quiet after dark, no rowdy parties. A perfectly adequate over night stop. We would stay here again. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

Passport America rate and well worth it! The sites are okay - pull-through with Wi-Fi that was OK. No cable. But the ranch itself is so fun - ride the train out to feed the Bison! And eat in the restaurant, but don't order fried chicken. Stick with bison ribs - award winning! We would stay here again for overnight. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very old RV park filled with ranch workers and who knows what other kind of workers. It seems that all the perimeter sites and many others (at least half of the sites) are occupied old dilapidated RVs some with old furniture (household chairs and tables) outside their RV for partying. It really looks like an old trailer park rather than an RV park. They claim the sites are 24 ft wide but I think that's a real stretch. They also claim to have deluxe sites (listed in their brochure) that are $10.00 more. Our neighbors were close enough we could pass sugar without getting out of the coach. The site was not level. We had to use blocks to jack up the front wheel on one side of the coach. I think the prices for the amenities and attractions was too high. The restaurant had decent food but the prices were outrageous. We opted for the cheapest things we could find (a hamburger for $11.99 and a bison meatball sub for $13.99). The only reason we even ate there was we were exhausted and too tired to cook or drive. They did give us 10% off which made the prices "slightly outrageous". The best deal they offered here was the $12 per person train ride to see the bison, which was a lot of fun. We thought about going horseback riding but for $40/hr per person we decided we didn't need to do it that bad! They had Wi-Fi but it was so slow you might as well say it was nonexistent. I would have given this a lower rating but I think it is a "novelty" working ranch that the kids would enjoy. Worth the price....NO! We were supposed to stay here for 3 nights but after we arrived and saw what it was like we opted to just stay for 2 nights, which gave us one full day here to check it out. We didn't need more than that because there wasn't much else to do. They do accept Passport America for one night and a 10% discount for Good Sam. The nightly rate I listed is without discounts. They gave us one night at PA rate and one at GS rate. Which brought it down to almost reasonable! We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

We had booked here for a week, wanted to see Cheyenne. After arriving and getting hooked up and finding that they are only supplying 111 volts of power on each side of the 50 amp, very bad, and low water pressure. We went to the office and told them we needed a refund and we were only staying 2 nights. So we could find another park on Sunday. This is the only reason they have a 1 rating other wise I would give them a ZERO! We then leave to go out to eat and come back and cannot pull our truck into our site, because the workers, next to us is having a party and have my driveway blocked with 2 trucks. They moved one and I had to go to the saloon to get somebody to call their security guy up to come and tell them to move the other truck. The park rules say do not park on the grass, well everyone here does park on the grass. They are partying bunch of drunk oil field workers. They are still partying at 9:55pm. The place seems to be full of them. Site are very tight. Place looks like homesteaders trailer park and not a rv park at all. Very trashy place. And we are leaving in the morning not Monday Morning. Probably will end up with the law here tonight. I would advise everyone to stay away from this place. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here for 6 nights. Great location near Cheyenne and the Interstate. Most staff were friendly, one really didn't want to work there. The park is old, run down and in need of some tlc. I had a problem with low voltage and had to use an Autformer to boost voltage. When I reported it, the the office employee who really didn't want to work there, she said "I'll ask some one to look at it." No one ever came by. This park allows aggressive dogs and there were plenty of them. Some were in fenced in areas behind 6' wooden fences. In the Dry Camping area, people are allowed to run generators 24/7 without exhaust extensions. The restaurant is nice, rustic and great staff. The food was good but very expensive.

The price reflects the increase due to the week of Frontier Days. Camp is run down, but adequate. Sites are fairly level on hard packed sand and gravel. Grass needed mowing. Restaurant on site is good, but the "Trading Post" is way overpriced on their goods, which include such things as cowboy hats, walking sticks, etc. Place looks run down in regards to its buildings and grounds. They do have many animals on site including horses, mules, buffalo and camels. If you use the restaurant make sure you try the buffalo short ribs--very good. Good access to the city and its attractions. If fueling at the Flying J, be very careful as there is a very deep dip prior to entering the pump area, and it is difficult to get back on I-25.

This was a good park about 20 yrs ago. The front of the registration office was made to look like old store fronts. They are now falling part and disgusting. When I went to the garbage area to dispose of dog waste and a fish head I had to pickup around the site before parking the cans were overflowing on the ground. Rate reflects Passport America.

Lots to do here. Park was pretty full. Quite a few permanent residents but not a problem. Only one night here but wish to go back longer. Pull thru site, level enough so did not use jacks. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

Dusty campsites that can be reached on dusty gravel roads. Grass has not been mowed for a couple of weeks. Registration staff did not provide much information except number of the assigned campsite and directions to get there. For the nightly rate charged we expected more amenities than the free Wi-Fi, which was slow. We found activities offered on the ranch by reading the posters. I highly recommend riding the train and buy the feed to feed the bison. That was a lot of fun. We will come back again for the activities but not for the campsites.

PPA rate. This is a tough one to evaluate. Just as an RV park it gets a 5 or 6. Kind of scruffy. Grass growing in gravel sites which are narrow. At your picnic table you could hit your head on the neighbors slide or rest your feet on their sewer hose. Long term residents scattered instead of being in a certain area. The entry drive hadn't seen gravel or grading yet. Good convenient location to overnight for which it works well especially at PPA rates. But I gave it a 7 because I could see where it might be a fun place to bring the family for a weekend with all the other facilities they have. Should be a real interesting mix when its full with weekenders, overnighters, and long term residents. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.
