It cost the 4 of us $25 to get in this place. We arrived mid day. They have exactly 3 wolves, 2 coyotes, 1 bear, 1 elk, 1 mountain lion, 1 porcupine, 2 goats and 2 emu. We never saw the elk or the mountain lion but the other animals were out and about. It takes about 15 minutes to... More

First, everything that you read from other reviewers that this place is small is true! HOWEVER, small as it is, it is a GEM not to be missed! Listen to all who tell you to come during the feeding time. Call to make sure that the feeding is at 4pm. If it is, arrive around 3pm, walk around the reserve... More

This is a small wildlife park and you want to go during feeding time, which was 4:00 for summer. We went at 3:30 and walked around the area on our own first and was around in 15-20 minutes. Once she (sorry didn't get her name) came out to feed, all the animals came out front and center. She would tell... More

We went at feeding time, so got a guided tour. The employees have a good relationship with the animals. My kids loved seeing the animals up closer than at regular zoos, and they got to feed the rabbits and goats. The woman in the gift shop also let them hold the ferret and bearded dragon which they loved.

We have been to many wildlife parks. Some of them were larger however what made this place very cool was the staff. They were all very friendly and full of information. The tour through the park at feeding time was a perfect way to see all the animals up close. I especially liked the grizzly bear and mountain lion. Both... More

It is a small place with just a few animals and if you go when not feeding it would take 30 minutes to do and might not see animals because they are hiding. Going at feeding time we spend about 2 hours. As you go around to the different animals the keeper talks about the animal and it is interesting... More

The area was small with less than 10 animals to see money would have been better spent going to the zoo at our hometown

Our family had a great time! The staff was extremely nice and friendly. Our 6 year old loved feeding the animals--especially the rabbits. Definitely worth going!
