Cool Local Spot

Went there with some friends... Recognized it from the Billy the Exterminator show. It was cool for what it was.

I'm not a big fan of gators being from Louisiana b/c I'm leery to swim, let my dogs swim or kayak most water around here for fear of them. So for me to leave there feeling sorry for them says a lot. I realize the waters of La. are swampy and nasty to begin with, but at least they are... More

Very dirty place. Don't think it has been cleaned since it was built. Very smelly. We did eat in the cafe and all the food tasted the same - all cooked in the same grease.

I think I loved the alligator park more than my kids! Feeding time was so awesome! Loved being so close to these HUGE creatures!

I visited Louisiana from the East Coast and decided to visit the Alligator Park. The drive was about 1 hour. The Park was a lot of fun. A lot of different areas to view all types of animals. Turtles, goats, ponies, deer, snakes, emu and of course alligator. The show was fun to watch. Lasted about 10 minutes. Hated seeing... More

The stage is set to offer an authentic Bayou atmosphere but the staff is lacking the enthusiasm. I enjoyed the animals and scenery but the folks that work there didn't deliver their end to make it fun.

This is a great park! I have been before and I will be back. It is not far off the highway and has something for all ages.

I was pleasantly surprised by the park. There was more to see and do than I expected. If you have young children and you are in the area I highly recommend it. The park is small enough that you can see everything and not feel overwhelmed. I highly recommend buying a bag or 2 of the animal food. You will... More

Boy was it hot in late July but this place was pretty cool. The Gator feeding show was interesting but was a little short. The goat feeding area was really fun for my 15 month old. Some other reptiles to see as well. Probably a good place to visit at least once.

They advertise the albino alligator, I don't believe it was real. Although it is a very interesting and nice park, a must see, Please, make sure you use bathrooms elswhere before you go. Their restrooms are the worst and filthest I have ever seen, anywhere!
