This was a very enjoyable visit. Be prepared for drive down a gravel road but it is worth the trip. Once inside the preserve, you will experience large groups of bison right beside the road and crossing the road around you. Quite amazing to see...More
Way off the beaten track. It was free and enjoyable. Lots of bison, crossing the road or just resting in the grass. GPS is a bit wonky this far out in the boonies, so it’s easy to get turned around if not paying attention, like...More
We drove this, and it was wonderful. The buffalo (bison) walk within feet of your vehicle, being free roaming. I got some great photos, and we loved it. Would be even nicer when the grasses had greened up, and flowers are out.
Want to see bison?? Then this is your place to visit! We saw multiple herds. The visitor area was staffed by very friendly and educated folks who were more than happy to greet us and share their knowledge about the preserve and it inhabitants. It...More
The Nature Conservancy's Joseph H. Williams Tall Grass Prairie Preserve is a natural marvel. The vast expanses of pristine prairie are breathtaking in any season. Spring and summer bring a wealth of native prairie wildflowers pollinated by butterflies and other insects, and spring is also...More
We have visited Tallgrass Prairie several times. Prairie flowers, buffalo, and miles and miles of rolling hillsides. At the end of the preserve is a small gift shop and very knowledgeable staff who can answer any questions you may have about the preserve.
One of the most memorable things we did while in Pawhuska was to drive the 17 miles to the Tallgrass Prairie Reserve. The preserve is open every day from dawn to dusk with no charge for admittance and can be accessed via county roads.
Made the drive through TPP. Outstanding views of many bachelor bison herds. Beautiful, powerful & graceful animals. White tail deer & Hawks. Spent time at visitors centre with extremely knowledgeable & nice Docents. They provided outstanding insights to important work going on at preserve. Picked...More
We wanted to make sure to see “real Oklahoma” before heading home from our girls trip. We enjoyed our time driving through the preserve and seeing many bison, hawks, and deer. Beautiful views of the Oklahoma landscape.
Maybe it's because I'm a city girl, but you know you're in the country where the deer and the antelope play, when you take this 15 mile drive into the center of the Oklahoma universe. I haven't seen that expanse of country from a spot...More

Pawhuska is 20 to 25 minutes away from the preserve. I personally think the drive to the preserve and through the preserve is beautiful and definitely worth the trip. The drive once you're there does make a loop but it is pretty long; it started storming the day we were there so we had to turn around and come back the way we came before we got to the visitor center so we plan to go back another time. Before it started raining we saw two different groups of bison and one group crossed the road right in front of us as close is 10 feet to our car. We also saw a few deer, some huge rabbits, and a fox. I hope this helps, enjoy your trip, make sure to take your camera.
