This is our second time to camp here. There are plenty of activities onsite to keep a family well entertained. The site was grassy dirt but it was leveled. Wifi connection is very weak and slow if you can manage to get on. Onsite restaurant serves very good food. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Buy food to feed the bison on the train ride.

Be sure to try their delicious award-winning bison short ribs.

There were pot holes when you drive in, the sites were gravel, some grass needed to be cut, mostly level sites. Bathrooms were nice but didn't use the showers. They had a playground we stayed for only one night. They do have a restaurant but we didn't eat there. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Buffalo tour, horseback riding there are plenty of things to do in Cheyenne but we were just traveling through.

Experience was unsatisfactory again, multiple year problem with lack of internet service. Say they have WiFi, have, but unable to get to internet on any of three park sites with multiple computers even from inside trading post. Visited office multiple times originally told they would reset routers and handle. After dinner they just said "we know", nothing happened. Restaurant overpriced even with discount , food OK, not great. Might be good place for family with small children for their activities. Not so good for adults only, especially if you want to communicate with the outside world through the internet. Won't try them again for this reason. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

Campgrounds gravel roads are full of potholes around entry/check-in. Travel slow, as you won't miss them. Decided to do the "train" ride (converted/unique school bus on train track to view/feed the bison. This is a real slow "clickty-clack" ride without narration but enjoyable. Hand feed the bison with plenty of photo opps doing so. Dining at the Senator restaurant

was just average and pricey but with a friendly knowledgeable server. Park buildings appear in need of repair (not restoration) and playground equipment (didn't use) to be used at guest risk (inspect before using). Campground appears inhabited (50%+) by longterm oil field workers with plenty of DIY skirting around the rigs. Biggest issue was lots of full hookup sites are without sewer caps so odor is a definite issue! Looks like they might have recognized the issue as a few show evidence of new caps but plenty are missing! We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a good place for one night. The site is large enough to leave the truck hitched. The park is four miles from the state border, a little way off of I-80 but really easy to get to. We have been here before and will probably return and would recommend it to friends. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We came in May, 2014 and stayed until 20 Dec 2014. Yes we were aware that Cheyenne Frontier Days were coming up. With all the influx of visitors, moving from monthly paid site to dry camp site for 12 days was a little stressful. Some visitors didn't seem to understand that riding their ATVs in donuts wasn't having consideration for fellow campers. Packing 55 to 60 RVs in tight allowed little privacy and a bit of generator exhaust flavoring to fresh air. Majority of staff very friendly and helpful. Yes, there is highway noise, but, we are near an interstate and this is also a working bison ranch with camping and amusements added on. We only used the water to flush as there was a film that floated on top of coffee or any hot beverages. Some road and ground maintenance would make it easier to get around and a little more enjoyable. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit the trading post, walk around the mall. We drove to Ft Collins for shopping. If you don't like crowds don't go during Cheyenne Frontier Days! Otherwise visit old town area.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
