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!

Although not very big place the animals are well taken care of and the staff was very knowledgable about the animals there. Mountain Lion, Bull Elk, Bobcat, Red Fox, Brown Bear ( hibernating) Wolf mix, lost of bunnies running around for kids to feed. Again a low budget park that allows you a place to get out and walk around.... More

November is obviously not their busy season. The animals appear well fed and well taken care of. We did feel extremely bad for the white wolf. She is extremely old, arthritic, in pain and needs to be put out of her misery. The guide was very personable and knowledgeable. She obviously enjoys her work and loves the animals.

my husband and i just returned from a quick visit to this park. We visited just in time for afternoon feeding which i would highly recommend. The lady feeding the animals was very knowledgeable and you could tell how much she cares for the animals. She also takes the time to answer any questions you might have. The owner is... More

We went to the refuge for the daily 4:00 feeding and it was amazing. For only 7 bucks we got an hour and 45 minute guided tour of the place, seeing wolves, coyotes, a bear, an elk, and several other species. They gave us a small bag of food to feed the bunnies. The tour guide was very knowledgable about... More

Paid for the 1 hour trail ride where the guides barely spoke, did not introduce themselves or ask the riders' names. The ride went along the outside of the wild animal park where there was no "tour" as they did not highlight anything about scenery or animals or anything. The 1 hour ride lasted only 40 minutes. Riders were bored... More
