We were pleasantly surprised by this place! We didn't expect much as we pulled in due to the run down look, but we soon realized that it's like that on purpose to look "old west"-ish. They had very cool exotic animals, ostriches, camels, llamas etc, and the bison herd was very majestic. The "trading post" i.e. gift shop, was more... More

After traveling all day from South Dakota we stopped in to the Terry Bison Ranch to have lunch. We had quick and friendly service and the bison burgers were delicious. These were cooked just perfectly and were not dried out at all like they sometimes can be. Lots to see and do at this place.

My family of teens and grandchildren spent about 3 hours here today. It looks like they have had more activity there in the past. But we went ahead and paid the $12 per person for the train ride which consists of one car...Lol. The train stops in the middle of a herd of buffalo...oops...bison and there you can feed them....

I was not going to have traveled 3,000 miles and not gotten to see the American Bison. After having no success in the Blackhills area or the Badlands of S. Dakota we decided Terry Bison Ranch was sure to be a sure thing. Although they are a very docile herd I think that made it better because we were able... More

If you have never seen bison up close, then this is the place to visit, but you have to take their "train" ride to get there. Once you get to the "tame" bison, the train stops for about a half hour so you can hand feed the bison from the train.

It was a cold windy day, and I was worried about riding in an open air train. Surprise! They have some four or five different "trains" - more like self-driven coach cars - and ours had closed windows. We had the train to ourselves. We otherwise had little or no idea what to expect, and were blown away when Shannon... More

This place has probably seen better days and it was a little rundown, but i didn't care because i got to feed potatoes to bison! Our guide was informative and gave all of us a chance to get up close and personal to the bison( while remaining in the safety of the train). The place has lots of other animals-goats,... More

We drove up to Cheyenne just to check Wyoming off the list and decided to check out the Terry Bison Ranch, and it was a blast! Took the train ride to feed the bison and had so much fun. Our driver JC was so knowledgeable about the ranch and the bison, and made a fun trip even that much better.... More

The train ride to feed the bison was very nice. Shannon did a great job of covering the history as well as telling us about the current facility. I agree the place could use some sprucing up. Typical ranch, nice they open to the public.

Interesting place. More than bison, so nice for people/children who haven't seen many large animals. Strange train takes you out to see bison herd, where they come up to the train car, and you can hand feed them and pet them. You can appreciate how massive bison really are.
