Entrance rates are very reasonable and they have feed you can purchase. Camel and pony rides are available for an additional fee. Kids can pet baby chicks, deer, and the goats. A super cute miniature pig runs around to greet people. They have some cool caged animals, including deer, elk, lions, Tigers, and bears. An enjoyable way to spend 2... More

They take good care of their animals. They sometimes let the large cats outside of the corncrib on the inside of another pen so they can roam around. They give the animals the correct amount of food. The bears have a lot of shade and ground to themselves. InFact, all the animals do and the owners are very friendly to... More

If enough people share their concerns, perhaps the USDA will finally shut this place down. Animals have been seized for biting patrons. Violations of animal welfare laws have been repeatedly cited. Now, animals are being transported for exhibits offsite suffering from obvious injuries. Profit is apparently more important than the welfare of the animals - or the patrons - at... More

Incredibly friendly people and obviously caring for their animal friends. More rustic than a zoo for sure, but maintained well and family friendly.

This place should be shut down. The animals are "living" in terrible conditions. Large cats were in very small cages, some with very little shade. Several bears were breathing heavily due to the heat and had no shade except for a box in their cage.

This place is the kind that Black Pine in Albion wishes would be shut down. It needs to be illegal to own this kind of animals. Nobody should own them. Just a money making scam for some Amish. They don't care about the animals just money. DON'T GO !!! READ THE OTHER REVIEWS !!!

I went there with my ARC and being the animal lover I am, I was thrilled. The conditions of some of the animals such as the wolves, the bears and the big cats are somewhat a bit disappointing. Most of the bears, tigers, a male lion and hoofstock were sweltering in the heat; another male lion, a leopard, a coyote,... More

So many animals. To few people to care for them. Many unhappy/hungry animals. I wanted to call the animal shelter after visiting. It was sad to see so many uncared for animals. We rushed through just to see if we misjudged at first sight and smell. Nope. Sorry I would not go back or recommend this park. I hope this... More

I was sad to see what I view as mistreatment of animals, and safety concerns, occurring at this roadside Amish zoo. There were large, dangerous animals that only appeared to be "secured" behind cheap carabiner clips. Visitors were checked in by a child, and didn't see an adult until leaving the site. We wondered what prevents visitors from doing something... More

This place is awesome, we love taking the kids here to show them how they are saving animals. Its interactive you can feed the animals. Take your kids there ask questions the owner is great and loves what he does. I love this place and we make many visits through out the summer.
