Be on the watch, as you slowly drive through the park, for bison and elk. It's always a fun surprise when you get to see these beautiful and massive animals.

I've been to this park many times, most recently last week. Normally I see a lot of animals, but did not see one single thing on this visit. It is still lovely to drive through the park as it is quite scenic.

We drove through Lone Elk Park this summer at lunchtime. It was really hot and we didn't see any elk, but saw a herd of Bison on the road. We also saw turkeys and a raccoon.

They have trails and lots of varying animals. Be careful because they are wild. Trails are a bit steep

Great little drive thru park. You usually get up close sighting of deer and some bison. There are areas you can sit and have a picnic if you want to.

We did the hiking loop and saw several Elk along the way. The trail wasn't too strenuous and provided a great 3.5 mile view of the park. There were a few uphill and downhill's, but overall not too bad.

Discovered this Gem by accident, no fee, but they do ask for donations (which is well deserved). You can drive around the park which takes about 20-30 mins dependant on how many animals you see (you can also go around as many times as you...More

They are open everyday at 8, enjoy! There is also a burd sanctuary on the same road, on the rightside right before Lone Elk park that has many beautiful eagles.
