My family has been going to Wilderness Walk the last 40 years, every single summer. Sadly, it has really gone down hill. Nothing has been updated at all that I can remember. It just keeps getting worse every year and definitely not worth the $50...More

We took our teenagers here and they loved being able to get up close to the wildlife. The goats were a hit as were the deer that you could walk up and pet.

We go to Hawyard WI every year and we always make a stop here. This is the best place to visit and enjoy some quality family time. This year was our first time taking our 1 year old, he absolutely loved it! Worth every penny!

I was not expecting all the animals they had in there. It is a pretty neat place and would go back again. They have other things to do other than see animals. They had a mystery house, panning for gold, souvenir shops, some food, and...More

My family and I have been visiting the Wilderness Walk for over 20 years. If you are visiting Hayward with kids, this is a must do! You can see everything in under an hour or stay for an afternoon.

We found $1 off coupons in one of the free hayward lakes travel magazines, sorry I can't remember which one, we picked them up at Walgreens in town before we went. It still cost $58 for 4 adults, but it was worth it.
