Greycliff Prairie Dog Town State Park is a 98-acre site in southeastern Montana where, through the combined efforts of the Nature Conservancy, the Montana Department of Transportation, and Fish, Wildlife and Parks, a community of black-tailed prairie dogs is protected, preserved, and displayed for the entertainment and education of passersby.

Interpretive displays explain prairie dog ecology, and the pop-up critters are viewable at a distance with binoculars and cameras. Photography and observation are the only viable activities, but kids love prairie dogs, and there are picnic tables on-site, making this a great place for a field trip.

Camping is available a quarter mile away; restrooms are a mile distant.

Dogs—the canine kind—are allowed, but must be leashed for obvious reasons. Please don't feed the prairie dogs.
