Buffalo Herd

Admission Fee


Other Link Kansas Bison Association

Located on US-183 Alternate, four miles south of I-70 and directly across from Historic Fort Hays, is a small herd of buffalo. This herd is a remnant of the vast herds which once roamed the Great Plains of North America. 

 The Frontier Park buffalo herd began in 1953, with a bull named "Wild Bill" and a cow named Calamity Jane. The herd has grown to include the main bull and a harem of cows. 
Though they may seem slow and lazy, Bison are one of the fastest most agile mammals in North America. 

 The area now occupied by the buffalo used to be the site of the Old Fort Hays Military Outpost. Open daily and FREE admission
