Wildlife Watching

You can connect with nature and watch the wildlife virtually anywhere in Chase County. We have the largest area of unspoiled natural Tallgrass Prairie in the world. Imagine finding a quiet spot and hearing nothing but songbirds.  The front porches of many of our lodging venues or under a tree at Chase State Fishing Lake are easy places to sit back and watch the local wildlife. Visit the Bison Herd at the Tallgrass National Preserve or take a leisurely drive on the Flint Hills Scenic byway and see what you can catch with your camera. You practically can’t miss at least a few local critters. Remember to keep a safe distance and watch out for the occasional snake in the grass!
