Have driven past this State Park gazillions of times, but decided it was way past time to visit. And it was certainly well worth the short drive off Interstate 15. A typical quality Montana State Park with knowledgeable and friendly staff. The Visitors Center has...More

What makes this site worthwhile is really the visitor center displays, which cover most aspects of the Plains Indian uses of the bison. The hike to the top of the jump is fun, too (you can drive, if you're tired), and there is a prairie...More

First Peoples Buffalo Jump is perhaps one of the only museums/historic sites where I can say I truly felt transported back in time. The visitor's center is also excellent with some interesting interactive exhibits on the jump itself as well as Native Americans and specific...More
