The kids loved getting to pet the aligator. They were all inside and very still, but the employee got in the enclosure and made them move around. The kids also enjoyed feeding the baby goats and petting the other animals. They have monkeys, and wolves and cute little racoons. Kids loved it! Ages 2 and 4.

Not quite sure we received our return on our investment for the price of admission. Fortunately this was not the only attraction on our list for this area because we drove a bit out of our way. Our kids enjoyed holding a tiny gator, then you walk around and see tons of Alligators sleeping in a big fenced in area.... More

folks that work here are fantastic, got to hold an alligator, and they told me of the area with the baseball history.

This was a total hit with our family! We enjoyed feeding the petting zoo animals bread, and when the bread ran out we started picking up acorns off the ground and feeding them to the deer. The staff was very friendly, and the facility was very clean. Our 5 year old daughter loved getting to hold a small alligator. You... More

Which she loved so much very awesome. Plan on taking another trip in a couple weeks and this place is on our to... More

I had visited this Alligator farm over 15 years ago and I wanted to come back with my grandchildren this time and my husband. I knew my grandchildren would enjoy it and they did, but I was sure my husband was just going along with it for their sake and not expecting much, but he seemed to really be pleasantly... More

We enjoyed this place. The goats are too cute. We got there a couple days after they had loved all the gators inside. Enjoyed getting to hold one and even spent the extra $1 to feed them. Would definitely go again.

We were in town on Columbus Day and EVERYTHING we wanted to do was either closed or not opening until late in the afternoon. We finally stumbled upon this place and decided to check it out. They had a LOT of Alligators in there! The kids all had a chance to hold one (mouth was rubber banded, no worries) which... More

My husband and I just visited this place, and it is wonderful! Free parking, and although small, it was very enjoyable. We fed alligators and held one, a tortoise, and several other creatures are here too! The feeding of the alligators is awesome, even though they were slow. It's family owned and so adorable. We will come back again! The... More
