The park has some great gems and also some areas that can use some TLC (Tender Loving Care). Check in is at 2PM and Check out is at 1PM. What really sticks out beside the Bison are the racoons. They also have a wide variety of playgrounds so if you need more than one big toy this is the park for you.
The Bison is a must as you can take a short walk out to watch the herd from behind a fence. It is a great experience for little ones. If you are blessed to have seen them in Yellowstone then it won't have the same excitement. They are penned in a small area similar to what you would expect for the common cow.
The racoons are an issue at this park. We actually got so uncomfortable at one point that we went into the RV to get away from them. Make sure you practice good food practices as they are out and more aggressive than I would prefer as they do get up close to you. They kept walking up to where we were seated and too close for my comfort. I did see others still feeding the raccoons even though the park has done an good job asking folks not to do so.
