Sad about the run down state we saw at what was once such a kid friendly place. The animals were hungry, lying or sitting in unsanitary conditions, and their water was filthy or non existent. Our group felt so badly for the animals. I hope someone who can take care of this situation sees these reviews and can help facilitate... More

First let me start with the good stuff. The animals are very friendly and my granddaughter had so much fun feeding them. It's not often that a peacock will eat out of your hand. The shade trees provide shelter from the blazing summer heat and it was a relaxing walk through the park. You can bring your own food to... More

We absolutely loved the Peacock chasing the Rooster! Bring the kids or don't it is a fun and inexpensive experience.

I took my granddaughter and daughter to the facility. My daughter had been there many times growing up. It was a fun day as she recollected memories to her daughter about what it was like when she went as a child. They both enjoyed feeding the animals and seeing them up close. You can buy treats there to feed them... More

If you love animals; this is the place to go. We've visited this game ranch many times. We went this past Sunday for my grandsons birthday. His choice. The place has been forced to pen the deer who used to roam free. Absolutely unfair to game ranch. The animals roaming free never hurt anyone. They would come to you to... More

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
