This was my biggest disappointment when I arrived in Lubbock. Can not describe it, you have to see it to beleive that the name is much bigger than what it really is. A few holes in ground ... that is it !!

Read about this from a brochure from the hotel. Stopped by with a bag of celery and enjoyed an hour of feeding and watched these little guys. A unique area that was fun stop. Kids would really like it.

Up close and personal with the history of saving an important animal in the ecosystem. Be sure to bring along celery, carrots or Cheetos to feed them. They wag their tails, bark, and scurry around eating the food if they're hungry. Easy learning board showing...More

Absolutely love going to watch the prairie dogs! They are so adorable to watch in their own habitat. The only thing I don't like to see is when people step OVER the wall and completely disregard the SIGNS that tell you to NOT GO OVER...More

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!😊
