Good family fun.

It is like taking a safari; seeing animals in natural settings instead of zoos. Always something new to experience.

I took my 3 year old granddaughter here last Friday. We had plans to attend the group feeding for the giraffes. We drove the park early and then headed to the village to hang out while we waited for our tour. Lucky us only one other woman with her grandson was attending. The little ones were able to feed the... More

Half way through a 12 hour drive, we needed a break. Saw the signs and decided to check it out. We had no idea it would be so much fun! Since we were traveling with our dog, we had to kennel her on-site; don't be deterred by this because they make it really easy. Once that was settled, we were... More

Had no idea what to expect when my wife and I came here. Boy we're we surprised! It was great! First, the little zoo area was nice.

What a pleasant surprise nestled away in Oregon. This 600-acre zoo has a 4.5-mile drive-thru park where the animals are so close it truly is an immersive experience. The park also has a walk thru zoo which provided a great break after our first trip through the drive-thru section. I highly recommend this activity if you are in the area!

Lots of animals in this park some run loose like Ostriches,Emu's, Geese and many more. Cats are all caged so they cannot get you. The bears are behind an electric fence. Lots of great animals

So fun to see such a range of animals on the safari, and have some of them really close to the car. The camel rides were a fun bonus, as was learning more about the cheetah breeding program.

Thank galaxy-cm
