The Terry Bison Ranch is still the best place to stay when you're visiting Cheyenne Frontier Days, which began July 18 and continues through July 25.
Straddling the Wyoming/Colorado border, the place is a massive working ranch -- with bison, camels, llamas, goats and all of your other standard farm animals -- and includes an awesome agritourism component. Visitors can camp or stay in their RVs, or they can rent a room in cabin or bunkhouse, shop at the store, play on the playgrounds, eat at the restaurants, take a train ride, fish, ride horses, etc., etc.
The bunkhouse is cool, but the cabins may be the only "motel" facility in the nation where you can look out over a bison herd from your front porch. Pretty awesome.
