Take An Offroad Adventure To Visit A Giant Herd of Iowa Bison

There was a time when wild bison roamed throughout Iowa – especially in the Northwest and Northcentral areas of the state. By the 1860s, sightings became rare and they eventually disappeared from the wild.

There’s a place in Iowa where you can still see these majestic creatures out in the field.
Bare Bison, a working bison farm in Van Meter, offers tours that give visitors a chance to ride right up to a real bison herd.

The offload tours are incredible – here’s how they work.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
