Slippery Ann Wildlife Viewing Area Review

Hundreds of elk congregate in evening in the fall at the Slippery Ann Wildlife Viewing Area. During the autumn mating season the bulls violently lock horns while herds of cows come to watch and be courted. Be sure to bring binoculars and zoom lenses for your camera, because you must keep your distance from these massive animals.

    Wonderful experience

    We visited this viewing area the last wknd of Sept 08 for 3 nights, camping at Kipp. Fri & Sat much more crowded w/ vehicles/viewers; mid-week was preferable. There were probably 1000 elk at this time; the bugling reminded me of hump-back whale songs. At dusk, the elk come out of the cottonwoods by the river & cross the road to graze. Watch them return at dawn, but it is darker. Definitely need good binocs & tele lense, but it's a wonderful experience to see so many animals in 1 place.
