Visited the game ranch with our children several times over the past 25 years and it was nice. Took our 4 yr old grandson today and it was pretty sad. Probably 50% of the exhibits no longer have animals in them, the picnic/playground area was very run down (didn't look like it was even open), trails have not been kept... More

It was incredibly overpriced and the animals looked so sad. The bears were all piled in a concrete pit together and you could feel the anxiety emanating from the cats as they paced in their cages.

I enjoyed seeing the animals up close. I like the fact that it was smaller than your average zoo and seemed more intimate.

It has many different kind of animals and you are free to roam the property and feed the animals. It is easier to buy food from them since they know what is safe for the animals to eat. Very fun place to visit.

Over the years, we've visited the game ranch several times with children. Today, we took our 3 year old grandchildren and will probably not be returning. The place is in general disrepair; there is a seating area with picnic tables midway through, but they were covered with tree limbs, leaves and general debris. One of the men cleaning cages did...

This used to be a great place. It is very run down, many animal enclosures have nothing in them. You used to go in the rabbit enclosure and be surrounded by them. Today there was one. Apparently the DNR made them fence in the deer which used to roam freely and come right up to you. Very disappointed today. A... More

This was my firat time ever coming here and it was cute. I went here on a date and we had a nice time. Next time we will purchase more crackers or corn. The best part was the peacock when it opened up right next to us. That was a beautiful sight.
