We had a great time here! The kids loved running all over the lawn -- it was a nice break from the road. The trading post was a really fun store to look through, and we got a few souvenirs. Still has live buffalo.

We also drove by the Muffler Man across the highway, but this stop was much better!

Wonderful place to find all kind of goodies to take back home, with a great staff. My husband and I enjoyed the large mural wall and the Big Chief.

Truck stop, very nice gift shop, Indian crafts, restaurant, etc. along Interstate 40 about halfway across Oklahoma.

We stopped here for breakfast on our drive home. As we were driving on Rt. 40 we saw that the front of the building had large painted plywood Indian chief on the front of the facade and a painted fiberglass Indian chief about the size of a muffler man under the sign facing the highway. The inside was rustic and old west-like, and obviously catered to truckers. The food was okay. Afterwards we went outside and walked to the field beside the restaurant to look at the live buffalo.
