Come and walk amidst a land of enchantment- as you stroll through the park you will be greeted by animals of all nations. You'll feed them by hand, and they'll follow you through the park. Pet these animals from Europe, Asia, South and North America, and Africa. You won't want to miss our NEWEST additions- over 75 new babies born each year! Take a break from the lake. Fish with us in our calm, cool, shaded lagoons. Fish brought in regularly, including catfish, bullheads, and carp. Also, largemouth bass, crappies, rock bass, and bluegill propagated on property.

I love to take my two little ones here. It's nothing huge but they love to wonder around and pet and feed the animals. Great and inexpensive thing to do with the kids.

The deer and the llamas come right up to you to you and eat out of your hand, it was so fun. make sure to hold you back up high, the deer know how to bite a hole in it so all the feed spills out.

I took my family here for a visit because I wanted to see a deer up close. And I sure did! You can purchase bags of corn and peanuts to feed them! Warning: hold the bags high because they know what theyre doing. There was a few deer that bit a hole in the bottom of my bag -_- so... More

Great experience feeding the animals outside of cages. Although the little goats get jealous and try to take you out. Lol very funny watching a baby goat run, jump, & buck.

My husband & I were in the area recently and stopped by. The staff was friendly. Buildings were well worn and in need of renovation. There was a wide variety of animals to see and feed. We each bought a bag of food and walked around feeding the animals. Some were in the open area and others in separate pens.... More

This place is probably better on days when it has not rained. It was simply a huge caged in lot with smaller cages. Some animals ran around free while some were in the cages. You walk freely among the animals and feed them- watch your younger children I saw several have their feed bags ripped from their hands by the... More

We went here on a whim after looking it up on Tripadvisor and I'm happy we went. The deer are sweetly aggressive and so funny! Definitely guard your food! They are sneaky and fast!! It was an enjoyable hour and I would go back again.
