Ok for an overnight stop, but a little expensive if you don't have Escapees or other discount.

Pros: Utilities good. Site level (grass and some long lost gravel) Office staff very pleasant and acommodating. Some staples available in the office (milk, beer, ice, frozen dinners etc) along with a few RV items. Onsite restaurant food is good (although expensive, especially for alcohol). Occasional live music in the restaurant/bar.

Cons: I get the feeling the restaurant staff is only as attentive as they have to be. Sites are very close together, and my site was full of cigarette butts, beer caps, and other misc. small pieces of junk that had obviously been there for a while. Pretty much that way all over. Fireworks stands nearby means the occasional rocket/firecrackers going off in the park late at night. Very dangerous I think, (dry climate) not to mention annoying, and stuff raining down on roofs if the wind is right or if you happen to be close to the fool who has no regard for anyone else. Park could use a good cleaning and sprucing up. Would return, but only for an overnight. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

About everything you could possibly need is only a short drive into town (Dell Range Rd) but finding Dell Range is a bit tricky. Exit 12, then east, left at the airport, then right on Dell Range (next light). Kind of neat old downtown-good for a walkaround.

This is a 1 night stay. Campground is bad gravel and scrub grass that could use a good mowing. Many old rigs with plywood additions. Utilities were fine. Claim to fame is that it is a working bison ranch with 2500 bison, camels and other livestock. Park and attractions seemed very tired. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We were lucky to snag a 30 amp electric with water site for the first 3 nights of Cheyenne Frontier Days. This place is an interesting mix of tourist trap, a true working ranch and a roughed in campground. We happened to eat in both restaurants - unmemorable at best. Not bad - just not really good. The RV Park itself has rough gravel/mud interior roads and the spacing was very tight. But we didn't stay in that area. We drove through there to more rough terrain to park - in a field. There were a few sites on the edge closest to the real RV park with electric and water. At first it didn't look too inviting. But once I moved the very rustic picnic table out of the middle of my narrow site, backed in and got settled all was fine. Water pressure was OK and no problems operating my 50 amp coach on 30 amps. We were packed in like sardines along the row with electric and had tents immediately behind us but everyone was polite and courteous so it worked out. The worst part of the experience was I25 and pounding noise all through the night. It made windows open sleeping difficult. The people in the Trading Post which is central operations were very nice and somewhat helpful.We didn't use any of the tourist attractions so can't speak to that - not our cup of tea. I would stay again under the same circumstances but would not go back by choice just to hang around the area. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

Very busy, very full park. A Mini Cooper convention and rodeo were in site that evening, so a bit noisy, but got quiet early on. Lots to keep one busy, and things for kids to do. A real western theme ranch. Worth the stop. In a rural area, but this historic ranch offers a lot to do -- rides, entertainment, shopping, animals to see up close, etc. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

This park would be heaven for city kids (with your credit card). Animals, playground, a different world. As an overnight camp, with PPA, it is acceptable. Utilities, restrooms/showers (in main building), check-in, were all good. Road and train noise were not a bother. The restaurants are not cheap but they are convenient. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Quite unusual. Very unique and much more than an RV park. They have 4,000 head of buffalo that they use for meat and breeding. Even Ted Turner buys them!

We planned on 2 nights, but are doing 4 to do most of what is provided at the park and to go to Cheyenne.

Passport America rate is good for one night, but they still give you a break for additional nights.

The park appears rustic, because it was made that way. It's been around a long time, so there are areas that are "weathered".

The big rig sites are 80' long, but there isn't much room between them. I didn't hear anyone complaining though, including us.

The dog walk area is huge and the different entertainment venues have plenty of room as well. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

They have their "train" ride where you get to see the buffalo as well as camels, ostrich, horses.

They have trail rides, ATV tours, pond fishing, 2 restaurants and a saloon.

Did you know a bull bison weighs 2200-2400 pounds, can run 35 mph and jump an 8 foot fence? Well, they have 4,000 of them here on 3,000 acres.

I gave this place an "8" based more on the fact I think there was more unusual things to do here than on the quality of the campgrounds. This place is more of a destination in and of itself!

We arrived very late and after closing, but all the info we needed and directions to our site were easy to find and right where the staff said they'd leave the packet. Located RIGHT off a major interstate there is definitely unpleasant road noise to contend with here. Interior roads are pretty uneven, mostly gravel and old asphalt, but are wide and easy to navigate. The RV sites are nothing to write home about - pull thru which was nice, but very plain, very close together, and definitely in need of some maintenance (grading, new gravel, mowing). No trees for shade anywhere in the lot, so when it hit the high 80's it was like baking in a parking lot.

But! There is lots to do here on-site and all the staff we met here were just wonderful and so friendly. Horseback rides, train rides, feeding buffalo, ATV rides, a kiddie amusement park, many other animals to see. Two restaurants are located on site - one that's just open for breakfast and the other, larger one that's open for lunch and dinner. The cost of the activities adds up for sure, but we found the restaurants pretty reasonably priced and good. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Our stay was on Mother's Day 2016. It rained intermittently and the interior roads which are unpaved had some potholes but were easy to navigate around. All the sites we saw were pull-thru. The staff was efficient and friendly. There is a stocked store and clean laundry room.

We took advantage of the 'train' ride onto the ranch where we stopped to feed the bison. One of the highlights of our brief stay was the Mother's Day Buffet at the Senator's Steakhouse which is onsite.

The RV site was basic with no frills. We would stay there again. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

We stop here often in October and April heading south/north. Lots of open site. So previous "close neighbors" comments do not really apply to us. Usually quiet, but some road noise from I-25. We pick at least the 3rd row back. If you arrive after dark and have not been here before..it can be a bit of a challenge on where to go (2nd entrance.."RV", then to the right around the fence, past the front of the building..to the rv sites). There are many full-time residents. Park cleanliness has been a continual problem ever since we started coming here. It is a bit better, but whole RV area needs a periodic cleanup because people do not clean up after pets and there are leaves, branches and small debris around. Very good and enjoyable restaurant within walking distance (see below). If you arrive during office hours they will give you a restaurant discount coupon. After hours - you park yourself and pay in the morning. A good Pilot/Flying J just north at Exit 7. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

Only one exit from i25 and 2 miles on frontage to get to campground. Easy drive around campground to site but VERY narrow sites. Slide extended out over the weathered picnic table that was just a nuisance and in the way. Dog piles all around. Hate that! Could not connect to wifi with any of our three devices. Ok for one night at the half price PA rate but won't return. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

The people in the office were nice. The restaurant was good and so was the live entertainment the night we were there. However, the sites are VERY narrow. If you want to sit outside, you feel that you are are in your neighbor's living room. There is absolutely NO SHADE. There are activities for families and nice playgrounds.

BEWARE!!! Scam artists operate in this park with apparently no restriction. It is a 3 card monte/lottery win scam. My husband was taken for $500. It was his stupidity/gullibility, but we had not run into this type of person or behavior in any other park in the 12 states we've visited so far so he was taken by surprise. BEWARE!!!
