Our City of Waco ranger was extremely knowledgable and welcomed questions. We learned a lot on this tour. The dig site was fascinating! We also enjoyed a very easy hike through the grounds.

How cool to see actual mammoth bones right here in the USA. So worth seeing if you are ever near the area.

This was an interesting thing to see. You must pay to see the Mammoth dig site but only $5.00 for adults, cheaper for military and kids. The guide was very good and answered everyone's questions.

As a young kid, I remember when the mammoths were discovered. I hadn't been out there since then so when my granddaughter had a field trip out to it, I joined her. Lots of memories were jogged back. The park does an excellent job taking...More
