This was really enjoyable. If you have kids they will love this, they get to touch and feed reindeer and elk, and see dolly the bison. Actually learned a lot here myself.

We stopped here on a side route from Anchorage to Fairbanks. It was ok. They really don't give you much food for the deer and it goes by fast. It's ok. Out of the way and really short.

My husband and I visited here 15 years ago and again this year, June 2014. I love animals and being able to get close to them and you can here. It is small and you get to go out and feed, pet and take photos with a herd of reindeer. They also had elk you could feed through the fence... More

This was a little stop we made because we had coupons from the Northern Lights book. It was well worth it and our whole family learned something and enjoyed feeding the reindeer!

So basically, you get here, you think to yourself, "Wow, if Sarah Palin grew up around these parts of town, I totally understand why she is the way she is." You arrive at a barn with some horses, you go inside and pay your nominal fee of $7, then you gather around with a small group of other curious tourists/bored... More

Took the tour to feed the Reindeer then the Elk. It was a fun little side track. The gift shop has a few items for purchase and they do horseback trips although we didn't do that part.

the reindeer al can horses seem to be well cared for and family is certainly committed and enthusiastic however it was a little bit disorganized and not is educational as I would have thought however the kids would really enjoy it also have chickens bunnies and had dog and cat running around its it's a fun place for the kids.

It's really not much more than a petting zoo - perfect for kids to walk around and feed the reindeer, but lacking in any education on the animals themselves. After a brief talk where essentially you learn the difference between caribou and reindeer (caribou are wild, reindeer are domesticated) there is a stop to look at Dolly the bison, then... More

What a neat experience! I take all of my out of town guest here. This little farm has tame reindeer, a like able moose and a feisty buffalo. 7.00 for adults--you can feed the reindeer and take the tour. Walk around at an easy pace, take a horse on a trail ride and buy a tee shirt! Northern lights coupon... More

Didn't know what to really expect when I read tourist magazine write ups about the place. They didn't come close to how great it really is. I love animals and we try to get to every zoo, farm or conservation place within a two hour drive from Anchorage. The reindeer farm is one of very few that we have visited... More
