It was an awesome experience. The pristine prairie grass is really fluffy and so tall that when my kids fell they completely disappeared. The buffalo were beautiful and while the rangers caution you to be careful, you can get as close you think safe. Originally from California, I find this park to be one of my favorites.

This was a refreshing stop on a long trip. The grasses were very beautiful in the way they waved like waves of water. Nice hiking paths. Good picnic area in the shade of big trees. The restrooms were very clean. The buildings were interesting though it would have been better with a guide. We didn't get a tour. I would do that next time.
Nice in that it was not crowded.

The Ranger was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the Flint Hills. We didn't know how complex the eco system was on the prairie. The stone house (beginning of the tour) was also interesting, but the prairie guided tour was facinating.

I know it doesn't sound like something to see, if you get a chance, check it out, you will be super beside yourself to witness the expanse.

Long drive to get there, but I thought it was worth it. Very peaceful. Nice landscape. We took the free ranger-guided bus tour - I thought the guide seemed very knowledgeable. Very informative.
