The Wildlife Park is a unique offering in the Northwoods. The many animals are interesting to view, but the real fun is getting to play with the goats and rabbits. Younger children really love visiting this place. It's hard to get them to leave unless...More

We’ve stopped here for many years (since our kids were little). It is a hands-on zoo (we got to pet a porcupine, and other animals—and learn about them at same time). We can purchase special crackers and feed the deer that are throughout the zoo....More

Great times for all ages. Educational center is great especially for homeschoolers, since they make worksheets out. It is a little pricey, so I would suggest packing a picnic to save some cash. Bring your hand sanitizer and enjoy petting the animals!
