优点: 不收费; 风景很漂亮 缺点: 在投票人数有限的停车位; 不可预知的野牛 美国平原是一个地方的品种的但是你必须靠近看! 最好的方式是去体验一下这些近距离的欣赏这种长篇大论。 润林大酒店大酒店是个很棒的方式来保留就! 位于俄克拉荷马州的内部最大的酒店中,这家保留需要一些努力才能到。 它不是一个你会不经意的来到要到下面的高速公路。 您可以从四个方向进入公园的所有,但最平滑的访问通过的pawhuska南部。 新好望角大酒店,一条街,在通往保留它将成为砾石 - 酒店介绍酒店4201。 准备有很多灰尘。 游客共享这些道路的车辆油田,接送牧场,和实用程序卡车。 当地的驱动程序经常着急但是根据我们的经验是他们承受能力的游客。 风景秀丽的投票人数广泛空间允许您停下来拍照或去欣赏风景。 更多的时候,你得把车停在路边的简要的拍照。 你会注意到有很多"私人的道路"的标志; 请将它们作为荣誉的人住在这一区。 一个游客中心和客座教授坐在公园的中心附近。 酒店提供的洗手间很干净,有一些小吃,礼物(自然),和野餐桌。 (还有一个风暴收容所,虽然我不知道它是怎么能如此。) 几个徒步旅行的允许你甚至如果你想更接近自然。 带上驱虫剂: 刻度的厚厚的在这个区域。 酒店的工作人员是在"上班时间。 "(在几个小时之后洗手间保持打开状态。) 话务员可以回答和共享交流最新的野牛。 他们还可以为你指路的另一侧的道路导致吃草的公共区域。 当寻找野牛这种类型的信息都是非常宝贵的。 我们从经验中知道。 我们第一次在六月, 2006 ,迎接我们的是一个单身的野牛公牛在南入口。 游客中心已经关门了所以我们都是我们自己。 我们开车的长度而看不到另一个保留的任何形式的哺乳动物! 这是我们第二次在六月期间, 2017 ,再碰到了一个单身的牛在我们南入口。 我们再一次开车英里而看不到其他的野牛。 (我们确实看到一些牲口。)但是是开放的游客中心。 我们了解到了"野牛循环"和吃草的野牛已经听到的几个小时前。 这把我们带到了三组信息分布在山坡上。 成功! 我的底线 - 这些都可以是一个非常广泛的草原植物和动物。 食府的性质和它的合作伙伴生态系统的维护工作做的很好这家有时就会忽略。 这里的景观都是不完全不变从过去几个世纪。 铺成的道路不是几百年前的存在。 几个pumpjacks ,畜栏,电力传输线路,和移动电话塔景观点。 您可以看到西南方向的风力涡轮机的边缘上保留。 有障碍物很少,不过,当然你也可以得到一个主意的方式是很久以前的定居者到达之前。 在这个公园里总是被远处的野牛。 他们会打印快轨站指示道路很近,但到目前为止我们在那里的时候没有。 我们住过一个更接近动物在其他保留(的诸野生动物保护区附近酒店真是和这座公园在南达科他州的脑海。) 作为一个摄影师我想捕获单个动物的几张照片,但我们发现虽然野牛都是重要的历史的一部分,他们只是一些玩家在一个较大的生产。 希望我们可以我们第三次来不会另一个十一年的制作! 最后请注意: 交通公园里是比在2006更重。 在我们住宿期间我们看到超过30的车辆。 他们从俄克拉荷马州镗孔盘子,堪萨斯州,徳克萨斯州,密苏里州,伊利诺斯州,和打雷。 在游客中心的我们听公园旅游业已増加因为Merchantile的pawhuska中打开。 提高认知可能会保存工作的好处,但可能会付出代价的。 公园的人工干预的迹象显示,但我们也看到了这条街上还有一只泡沫塑料食物容器塑料包装附近的一个景色优美的标记。 两个可能到达的意外,但加强探望偶发的碎片的数量可能会増加。

loved the views, bison
2018年10月
if you are big on mountains or streams, this is not for you. If you love the prairie, go to see the bison, and have someone explain the difference between the green fields (which have been burned) and the brown ones, which have not been burned. Whoa it was fascinating!

Hint: check the visitor's center for bison location
2017年6月 • 夫妻情侣
Positives: No charge; nice scenery
Negatives: Limited parking in turnouts; unpredictable bison

The American plains are a place of amazing variety but you have to look close to see it! The best way to appreciate this variety is to experience these grasslands up close. Visiting the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve is a great way to just that!

Located in the interior of the largest county in Oklahoma, this preserve requires some effort to reach. It's not a place you'll stumble into while going down the highway.

You can enter the park from all four directions, but the smoothest access through Pawhuska on the south. Grandview Avenue, a paved street, leads to the preserve where it becomes gravel-covered County Road 4201. Prepare for lots of dust. Tourists share these roads with oilfield vehicles, ranch pickups, and utility trucks. Local drivers are often in a hurry but in our experience they're tolerant of tourists.

Widely spaced scenic turnouts allow you to stop for pictures or to admire the view. More often than not, you'll have to park briefly on the side of the road to take photos. You'll notice a lot of "private road" signs; please honor them as people do live in the area.

A visitor's center and support buildings sit near the center of the park. This complex offers clean restrooms, a few snacks, gifts (naturally), and picnic tables. (It also has a storm shelter, although I don't know how accessible it is.)

A couple of hiking trails of allow to get you even closer to nature if you want. Bring insect repellent: ticks are thick in this area.

The center is staffed during "business hours." (Restrooms remain open after hours.)

Attendants can answer many questions and share the latest bison sightings. They can also provide directions to side roads that lead to common grazing areas. This type of information is invaluable when looking for bison. We know from experience...

On our first visit in June, 2006, we were met by a lone bison bull at the south entrance. The visitor's center was closed so we were on our own. We drove the length of the preserve without seeing another mammal of any kind!

During our second visit in June, 2017, a lone bull again met us at the south entrance. We again drove miles without seeing other bison. (We did see some cattle.) But the visitor's center was open. We learned about the "Bison Loop" and heard where bison had been grazing a few hours earlier. This information led us to three groups spread across the hillside. Success!

The Bottom Line -

These grasslands are home to a remarkably wide array of plant and animal life. The Nature Conservancy and its partners are doing a good job maintaining this sometimes overlooked ecosystem.

The landscape is not entirely unchanged from past centuries. Gravel roads weren't present hundreds of years ago. A few pumpjacks, corrals, electrical transmission lines, and mobile phone towers dot the landscape.

To the southwest you can see wind turbines on the edge of the preserve. Obstructions are minimal, though, and you can certainly get an idea of the way it was long ago before settlers arrived.

Bison have always remained distant in this park. Hoof prints indicate they do come close to roads, but so far not while we're there. We've been a much closer to animals at other preserves (the Wichita Wildlife Refuge near Lawton and Custer State Park in South Dakota come to mind.)

As a photographer I'd like to capture a few photos of individual animals, but realize that although bison are an important part of the story, they are just some of the players in a larger production.

Hopefully we can our third visit won't be another eleven years in the making!

Final note: Traffic in the park was much heavier than in 2006. We saw over 30 vehicles during our stay. They bore plates from Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Missouri, Illinois, and Alabama.

At the visitor's center we heard park tourism has tripled since The Merchantile opened in Pawhuska. Increased awareness will probably benefit preservation efforts, but may come at a price.

The park shows few signs of human intervention, but we did see a styrofoam food container along the road and a scrap of plastic wrap near a scenic marker. Both probably arrived accidentally, but increased visitation will likely increase the amount of incidental debris.

Beautiful visit into the past.
2017年4月 • 夫妻情侣
The grasslands are mesmerizing and we visited when the grass was young and short - we will return in September when the grass reaches 10 feet!
The bison herds are immense, stretching from horizon to horizon, like 2 centuries ago.
The Tall Grass Prairie HQ is a classic OK ranch house and the photographs show the bunkhouse history and pay tribute to the prize-winning cowboys who worked there in its heyday.
And the current collaboration between The Nature Conservancy and OSU mean cutting edge research for agriculture methods.
It's an inspirational place to visit.

Beautiful preserve and magnificent Bison - worth the trip
2016年7月
Kudos to the Natural Conservancy for preserving the tallgrass environment and giving us a chance to see the magnificent Bison in their natural habitat. With your car as protection you can get out and watch them. When they are close by it was fascinating to hear the Bison. Sometimes the sounds was snorts and grunts and at times it almost sounds like they are purring. You can also hear them pull the grass. When they are farther away they seem to flow across the prairie, calmly moving together. This was a good time of year to see the calves. If you also like birds this is a great place to visit. I saw my first Dickcissel.

We stayed in Pawhuska at the Grandview Inn Bed and breakfast which was also a good experience. We visited the preserve at end of day and then the next morning as well. We saw Bison on both visits.

Cool
2016年4月 • 独自旅游
This is a pretty cool place. I didn't stay long enough to do the trails, but I may go back to try them out. Whether you are an adult or a child, you'd enjoy this preserve. It is a little out of the way and is definitely in the middle of nowhere. I'd recommend making this trip at least half a day. Pack a lunch, do the drive in, go to the visitors center, do the trails, have lunch, and then finish it off with the loop for to see the bison. There are several places where you can pull off on the loop to take pictures. Do drive slowly, especially once you start seeing the bison, because people pull over/stop to take pictures. It would probably be a good idea to stay in the car to take pictures since bison can be unpredictable.

As I said, you could make at least half-a-day at the preserve. It would be a great way to spend a time to let kids see wildlife, learn a little about history and science, and get some exercise/break from traveling. It's definitely off the beaten path. Of course, if you are on a time limit, then I'd recommend doing the bison loop and the visitor's center. There are restrooms and vending machines. Well, I remember seeing drink machines, but I didn't go that way so I don't know about snacks. There are some snakcks in the visitor's center though.

Beautiful, Wild Countryside.
2015年4月
This is such a beautiful place to get lost in. Bison are scattered throughout the place, sometimes in the road or right next to it. We went in the Spring, so we saw baby bison. The flowers were beautiful and it is just a wonderful nature preserve.
