Great story how Clapp family wanted to preserve the prairie dog. Make sure you bring carrots or something for the little guys to eat. They sure are cute!

Better than a trip to the zoo! These little guys were quite entertaining just being themselves. It's fun to be able to be so close. Most fun you can have for free on a Wednesday evening in Lubbock.

Went here in summer before school started and they were so cute! The noises they make and the way they stare at you is adorable. Not something that takes very long, but if you're board one afternoon give it a try!😊

Prairie Dog Town is a fun short little visit. Nice place to bring out of town visitors for a taste of West Texas.

This is one place that there is never a dull moment with so many Prairie Dogs running around. These little guys seems to be well fed by visitors. They can keep you entertained for hours. Fun for kids to watch.
