Our family had the most wonderful experience at the park. We drove through the large park twice. We fed zebras, buffalo (one was white), reindeer, elk, llamas, yaks, emus, etc! All the animals were extremely friendly, and we felt we communicated with them in a very deep way. Some of the animals had an interesting sense of humor. They were... More

This little animal park is way out of the way... a nice, quiet, peaceful area. We went early on a beautiful Sunday in October and didn't see a crowd at all. We opted for the wagon ride, rather than driving our own vehicle - which I HIGHLY recommend. It eliminates a lot of the stress about worrying that horns or... More

This zoo is very well maintained. The animals are well cared for and happy. The people who run the zoo are extremely nice and helpful. Make this a priority trip. The animals come very close, so be aware they may rub your car.

Took our 3 year old Granddaughter today and had a blast! She enjoyed feeding all the animals. The Zebra sticking it's head in the car right in her face scared her a little but she got past it and enjoyed the rest of the trip. My wife and I had a great time too. The larger animals, the Bison particularly... More

Had a blast. Kids loved it. Adults loved it. Take an SUV or Jeep, something with a lift gate or open seating to get easy access to see and feed the animals. Beware...the bands of goats that will ambush you wanting food. Trust me, you can't drive off and lose them. They know the shortcuts and will be waiting for... More

What a charming little ranch! We took our own car, a Prius, through the gravel paths, feeding elk, deer, goats, zebra, yak, and even bison. I recommend feeding with the palm of your hand, because if you show the white bucket most will dip in greedily! They also may look for food in your car! Be sure to save some... More
