Welcome to the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm and Exotic Petting Zoo & Deer...

Welcome to the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm and Exotic Petting Zoo & Deer Farm Riding Stables. You’re going to love our unique barnyard environment, nestled on 143 acres of a beautiful mountain property. Bring the family to meet, pet and feed our friendly animals, including goats, deer, camels, elk, reindeer, emu, zebra, exotic cattle, watusi, zonkeys, and so much more! You can even walk amongst our tame fallow deer. After the zoo, the little ones can enjoy a ride on one of our gentle ponies, led by Mom or Dad. Or, the whole family can take a relaxing horseback ride through our wooded Smoky Mountain home, led by our courteous and experienced guides. We hope to see you soon!

Fun for all

Animals are perfect for children. A little scenic drive to get to but very much worth it. I would go back again to do the horse riding.

This place is greater than 5 stars. We took our son there for his second birthday and he loved it. The animals were all so friendly and loved his cuddles, the staff was amazing and did a great job taking care of the animals and educating the visitors. I was blown away by how many animals you could interact with.... More

Slobbering camels, deer, and kangaroos are just a few of the creatures you can see and touch here. Great staff to answer questions.

I visited with two friends I was traveling with. We were deciding between here and the Rainforest Adventures in the same town. We choose this location because it seemed we could have closer interaction to the animals (and boy did we!) You can feed and pet every single animal in the park (as long as you can get them to...

My wife and I have been coming to Pigeon Forge as a couple for many years now. I would have to say today was the happiest I have ever seen her. She loves animals and today she got to hold, pet, and feed some amazing and beautiful critters. To walk amongst a herd of deer, having a camel eat right... More

We took our 5 and 6 year old daughters here last summer. They loved it. They were able to feed and pet most all the animals. They really enjoyed the baby goats, and all the deer. We look forward to visiting again.

We go at least once each year and love it as much today as the very first time. Employees are friendly and informative. The animals are obviously well taken care of. It's a great way to spend couple hours. They have a small picnic area as well. Always look forward to the next visit

Reasonably priced and lots to see. It was so awesome to get so up close and personal with such sweet animals, especially the elk calfs! Very friendly and down to earth staff. Military discount! Highly recommend for all ages. Tip: if you plan on going here don't come in your best dressed. Wear something causal that you wouldn't mind getting... More
