A Noah's Ark blending of animals. Beautiful to see them run, when they do, and stroll behind the wagon. You would never have the opportunity to feed or get this close to many of these animals in a general zoo setting. Quite an undertaking to run a farm like this...... We are glad that we took the time to read... More

Second year we go and kids live and love the experience. It's an exotic petting zoo with many animals that you really wish were free. These are well taken care of and well fed. Big lot- buggy ride and a bucket of food to give away. 12 dollars for adults. We will go back for sure - closes Oct 26

We decided to take the kids here and it was fun for us. We enjoyed the different types of animals and feeding them

Tons of animals to look at and TOUCH. We took the wagon ride and it was much fun. The Amish family were very friendly and spoke to us about the farm and all the animals. Gave us plenty of feed to feed them. Great family place. Very clean. $9.95 per person.

I didn't have high expectations for this "zoo" going in to be honest. It is on an Amish farm...and I thought it would be a glorified petting zoo...but it was so much more. Don't get me wrong it is a petting zoo. You can pet baby deer, there are llamas, goats, miniature horses etc. Pretty typical. It believe it was... More

I have lived in Indiana most of my life and have made many trips to Shipshewana for many years. I never realized this animal park was there. I visited for the first time this past Labor day weekend with my wife, daughter, niece and parents. We all had a fabulous time. The best part to me was the wagon ride... More

Many people using amigos and wheelchairs were able to get around this area and unto the horse driven rides. I fed water buffalo, long horn cattle, camels, yaks, watusi cattle, Zonks, Zebras, bunnies, rabbits, baby ducks, baby goats, miniature horses. There were horse rides for children. Run by the Miller Family. This is not a zoo, this is life

We were looking for something to do with grandson. We were pleasantly surprised to find this animal park. We enjoyed the horse and trailor ride while feeding the animals. The staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Would definitely go back

This was our first time visiting Dutch Creek and we were SO glad that we did! The Amish family that runs the Park are lovely people and take very good care of the animals. It was such a great up close and hands on experience! My five year old daughter said it was WAY better than the zoo! It was... More
