Where the buffalo roam and we welcome guests to stay.

The Animals of Buffalo Creek

Buffalo Creek is a working ranch, we care for a herd of bison, llamas, goats, mini horses, rabbits, and a turkey.
Part of the charm of staying at Buffalo Creek is the interaction with the animals.

* If you cabin/caboose is not within walking distance, please park your vehicle at the BC Depot & walk down to the green barn

To get to the llama pasture, you would walk past the green barn, Jeep Trail goes to the right & Bison Run Rd continues to the left to the cabins.  There is a dirt path here in between the 2 roads that you will walk on to see the llamas.  They typically get fed after the bison & barnyard animals @ 10:30 Monday – Saturday.   They are truly inquisitive creatures.  If you stand quietly & hum, sometimes they hum back or will come over & give kisses.  You can walk through the gate here (be sure to close it afterwards) this is another trail to get to the playground.

Calling all wanna be cowboys & cowgirls.  Kids will get to ride one of our mini horses that will be led by one of our crew.   Take lots of pictures & afterwards feed the horse a treat!
