Good place to see wild animals

We enjoyed seeing the animals at feeding time. The guide was most informative and knew quite a bit about the animals and why each one was there.

My wife and I, together with our oldest daughter and her three children, and our middle daughter all went on the two hour trail ride up into the mountains overlooking Pagosa Springs. Our "Wrangler" trail guide Katelyn was just great. She took a bunch of rookies up into the mountains, up trails and down trails, through meadows and through underbrush.... More

This park is cute but only takes about 30 minutes. For a wildlife park, seeing goats is not a highlight. They have a handful on animals but they are hard to spot if they are not out.

Loved this! The animals all appeared to be very well taken care of and happy. We were there during feeding time and got to see all of the animals eat. It was amazing! Can't wait to go back!

This place is good for smaller children who like animals and going on walks. It's pretty small and not a ton of stuff to do, but if the limited attention span of a toddler, it's a nice little adventure.

We enjoyed seeing the animals at feeding time. The gal that was feeding knew each animal and the animals really responded to her, she gave lots of information about each animal as well as told their stories on why they were there and the reasons they could not be returned to the wild. All of the animals looked well taken... More

A little outside Pagosa, this is a fun spot to see some animals up close as well as learn a bit about them. Make sure and go around 4pm which is feeding time/tour time. It won't blow you away, but it's a nice time.

Had the fee been higher I would feel we were "robbed". There are very few animals, never did seen many as they were holed up in their shelters. The "Art Museum" is more of wee little art gallery. It really was not worth the time to drive out to see. When you spend more time getting there then being there... More

This is a nice, affordable afternoon activity for everyone. Feeding time is the most fun as the animals are ready! Nice selection of animals at the park that is family owned. You can see they love the animals, who would not survive outside of the park. The guides are patient, taking no matter how many questions. I take everyone that... More

Guess it is hard to show captured in a humane way. We went at the 4 PM feeding time, but the animals just looked sad. The young lady guide was personable and informative.
