The employee I chatted with was very nice. They have brochures about the area and a small room with displays. There is also a clean, indoor restroom. This is worth a stop to take a small break when you are site seeing in the area!...More

Can see elk almost everyday close to the road. So watch for cars to be parked along the road and sometimes stopped in the road as people get out to take pictures.

We came away refreshed with a few sticks of elk jerky, and other items, plus, valuable information about the natural surroundings and Elk relocation, and some local history of Ponca. Interactive kids and adult exhibits. Moderate space packed with lots of resources, and nice gift...More

Lots of "stuffed" animals. Good information on the local elk and where to see them. We did go back to where they said in the evening and saw several elk. Definitely worth the stop.

Very nicely done education center. There are many displays and quite a few displays encourage you to handle them. There's a collection of plaster cast of tracks and pelts from the local wild life among other things.
