Stopped in to the visitors center and got 15 minutes of great in olive, information and maps from the incredibly helpful Kendra one of the park ranger. She was so helpful I couldn't thank her enough. I was driving through in my RV and was able to dump my tanks and get some fresh water all they ask us a small donation. Clean bathrooms and very cool center with several stuffed animals and info.. Even got a 50 cent cup of coffee " donation"... Thanks again for a great way to be welcomed to your great state of Wyoming

Great little stop while passing through. Good opportunity to walk the pups, stretch your legs, enjoy nature and get a little education. Play areas for the kiddos, plenty of picnic spaces, nature trails, small museum and more!

I take my dog there every weekend. Last weekend we saw a BIG raccoon on the trail when we came around the path. Of course the picture is one of many Perrier dog's that live there.

Stopped overnight in Evanston - this little park was a great place to walk my dog & stretch our legs! We saw a lot of different birds, a moose, and the captive bison.
