For those that like to sleep under the stars, we have 18 primitive camping sites that are maintained and ready for campers. These primitive camping sites allow for seclusion and privacy if you want, while still being close to amenities such as a shower, restroom, or just a place to get out of the weather if needed.
Breaking these rules will result in a $200 fine and cancellation of your stay.
For the safety and well-being of our guests and animals, Wildlife Prairie Park does not allow dogs or other pets inside the East Side gates. Because we are a zoological park we must have your cooperation with respect to safety requirements.
If you are to be accompanied by an emotional support animal or licensed service dog, please email email@example.com ahead of your visit and inform the entry gate attendant when you arrive. Take the animal directly from your car to your lodging and from your lodging to your car. You must utilize a leash. No animals are allowed to move about the park. We must restrict them from our animal trails and other locations where the animals on display are the natural prey or natural predators of dogs, where the presence of a dog may be disruptive, causing the display animal to behave aggressively or become agitated.
Know that our staff is committed to making your visit enjoyable. Wildlife Prairie Park is not responsible for harm or injury that your pet may receive while at the park.
