Wellknown Buffalo/Crow Indian Camp
Great History!
Peggy was super inviting. We got a rundown on the history of the land and learn a lot about the mission of the organization. It was really great. We made several animal friends. It was a little difficult to find. Google sent us west of the highway down a dirt road. Luckily someone found us an lead us to the campground which is east of the highway just north of the Gerryowen exit.

Wellknown Buffalo/Crow Indian Camp
Very noisy
The campsite was very different to what I expected. It is noisy and I barely slept. The campsite is beside a very busy road and busy rail line, with trains blowing horns all night long. I was the only camper on the night I was there. Perhaps because of this, it felt very strange being in someone's yard but I felt safe. I welcomed the company of the very friendly family dogs! I was met by Peggy's daughter, who gave me a quick tour of the facilities. I saw her again at breakfast and she explained the Crow history to me. I thought there may be more of a Native American experience to the stay. I admire what the center does and am happy to support the cause with the camping fee, but was disappointed with the location.

Peggy and Co-hosts were friendly and accommodating. We went for crow fair and wish we could have stayed longer and participated in the many programs Peggy Well Known Buffalo has to offer for learning about Crow people and culture. Dry camping spots were great. Easy to find. Bathrooms/showers clean and comfortable. Friendly dogs and kitty also there to great us.

Fantastic experience
This was a wonderful experience. My two teen boys and I stayed here the first night of a two week camping road trip and we loved it. Peggy and family are wonderful hosts, and the work they do for the community is incredible. Stay in the tee pee! You won’t be disappointed. Do bring bug spray; there are lots of mosquitos and flies

Camping on an eclectic property!
We truly enjoyed our experience at Wellness Buffalo. We camped out in tents. There is a fire ring for camp fires. The camp area has plenty of room. There are clean bathrooms with hot showers. We had a wide open view. There are horses dogs cats and a hard working family that makes for a comfortable stay. We would come back!

Having horses and dogs running around on the property is just my kind of place! Peggy and her family were the best and the other campers were great to chat with. By the time I left, it felt like saying goodbye to family! Although I was scheduled for tent camping, I was upgraded to a teepee stay, and loved the experience. Thank you Peggy
