Business Details

The Vore Buffalo Jump is one of the most important archaeological sites of the Late-Prehistoric Plains Indians. 

Discovered during the construction of Highway I-90 in the early 1970's, the Vore site is a natural sinkhole that was used as a bison trap from about 1500 to 1800 A.D.

The best place to get information about your visit including hours of operation is by visiting their website: https://vorebuffalojump.org

Buffalo were driven over the edge of the sink hole as a method for the Native American tribes to procure the large quantities of meat and hides needed to survive the harsh prairie winters.

The Vore Buffalo Jump is on the National Register of Historic Places and is located immediately adjacent to Interstate Highway 90 in northeastern Wyoming.

The Site is approximately half way between Sundance, Wyoming and Spearfish, South Dakota in the Redwater Creek Valley between the Bear Lodge Mountains on the north and west and the Black Hills proper on the south and west.

2022 Admissions Cost is $10
