Crook County is famous for being the location of the nation's first national monument, Devils Tower but there is so much more to see and do here in Devils Tower Country. Crook County has world class wildlife watching and wildlife photography opportunities. As a low population county in a low population state we have phenomenal wildlife habitat and a variety of wildlife species for you to spot. Elk, moose, mule deer, whitetail deer, wild turkey, prairie dog, bald eagle, black bear and sage grouse are just a few of the species present in the county.
We invite you to visit Crook County and see why we are one of the best wildlife watching destinations in the United States. Some of the best places to spot wildlife is in the county's state parks, national forests, wilderness areas and of course in and around Devils Tower National Monument.
