I took my granddaughter and little great granddaughter to this place yesterday. While the overall condition of it was run down, the condition of most of the animals was appalling. One of the bears was laying against the bars of the cage barely breathing and not at all responsive. Poor thing was either dead or nearly dead. The "reassuring" sign... More

Another animal rescue for animals where you can feed and pet all the animals. From deer to bears, turkey's and a lot more. A definite family pleaser..

The Game Ranch has really gone down hill since I was a kid but my son (2 years old) still loved it. Please continue going to visit these animals. They need your support. The laws have changed and the deer no longer roam free but you still get to hand feed through a fence. The squirrels eat out of your... More

I haven't been to the ranch in over eight years. And, boy, has it changed. The best thing is the price. We spent $20 for two adults, a toddler, and snacks for the animals. Before you go, make sure you bring walking shoes, a durable stroller (if you have little ones), bug spray, and hand sanitizer. The good: you can... More

Even though it has been about 5 years since our last visit, I never expected any place to go as far downhill as this place has. We are always excited about taking our grandkids to Yellow River Game Ranch for a great afternoon. This time I wish we had not built it up so much to our 4 & 6... More

We used to live visiting Yellow River. Todays visit was very disappointing. The place is going down hill quickly. Half of enclosures are empty. Bunny habitat says it is under construction but looks like they have shut it down. Unless things change we will not be back. Save your money.

I took my grand-kids to the Yellow River Game Ranch so they could see and get close to some of the animals. The place has really gone down hill and is in bad need of repair. The conditions the animals live in was really depressing. I do not recommend visiting this depressing site.

The Yellow River Game Ranch is one place our family takes in every year or so, when the grandchildren visit. They like the walk through the trees to see the many animals. As more of a rescue facility than an entertainment venue, there are certainly things they could do to make it more visitor friendly, but everyone looks forward to... More

An ideal place for animal lovers of all ages. My family has visited several times. You really have an appreciation for the Game Ranch and its care for the animals.

A bit expensive but go on a weekday & check for coupons. Also, take your own apples, crackers & nuts to feed the animals. If you are really lucky, you might get to see the white peacock! He was simply beautiful!!
