Family Travels

Home to elk, bison, deer, and waterfowl, Lone Elk Park makes a great place for an afternoon lunch or early evening dinner. Last time we picnicked there, a herd of elk munched their evening meal just a few yards from our picnic table. Hiking trails, fishing lake, tennis courts, pavilions, picnic tables, and outdoor grilling areas make this a perfect place for gatherings—we have had several field trips here over the years. But if you only have a little time, a drive through this animal park will certainly excite both children and adults alike. Open from 8:00 a.m. to half hour past sunset. Free.
