If you've never been to Lake Arrowhead, you might not realise that this is an affluent mountain town with 9000/sq. foot homes, private docks, and exclusive rights to use the lake. I was astonished at these gorgeous homes and couldn't help but admire the wealth...More

This is an informative walk through the forest to see the rescued animals. Loved learning about each of the critters: hawk, owl, bobcat, brown bear, coyote, eagle, golden eagle, etc. They are only open by reservations on Saturdays.

This is an wild animal rescue sanctuary for animals that cannot be returned to the wild mostly due to injuries. Must call for a reservation $15, unique place, worth the time and effort.

The caretakers at the ranch are dedicated and knowledgeable. We saw a bobcat, coyotes, black bears, a bald eagle, a golden eagle, etc. Very in-depth explanation of the animals and how they came to the ranch.

Staff was friendly, provided lots of great information and very knowledgeable about each animal. It's a walking tour with lots of inclines/declines on both paved and unpaved areas. Not wheelchair accessible...be careful if you have problems walking on uneven terrain. It's definitely a hidden gem...worth...More

This is a facility where animals that can't be returned to the wild are lovingly cared for. Visiting was the highlight of our vacation. Our grandkids, ages 13, 9 and 5, really loved the up-close-and-personal experience. Tours are only given once or twice a week,...More
