Visitor Tips and News About Al's Oasis - Big Buffalo
I had never been out to South Dakota, so when I heard there was a giant buffalo statue, I had to stop. It is what you see. Still a great place to stretch your legs and get a famous snapshot.[Pam Murack, 07/27/2014]
Al's buffalo is just impressive enough to pull off for a snapshot. But if ever in NORTH Dakota, check out the World's Largest Buffalo, which would scare Al's little snorter right off the prairie.
As for the giant buffalo - there are actually three. Two are life size, and the third is double or triple the size of a real buffalo.[Joe Desiderio, 07/05/2002]
