This was my 2nd visit. I can honestly say I have enjoyed both visits and look forward to going back many times. Driving through and seeing many varieties do animals up close is such fun. The llamas are my favorites. The ostrichs are 2nd. All come up to your car and you feed them the food purchased at the visitors... More

I have gone here twice. Both times with my grown daughter and the last time with my 86 year old mother. We had a blast driving around feeding the animals. The garden bird area was great too.

Take a wagon ride over 3 mi of trails with animals feeding from your hands. The children and adults were delighted to feed Emus, cattle,deer and more. There is also a petting area. Our kids really were impressed with the Giraffes and the Long Horned steer.

A nice opportunity for any age to enjoy animals. Whether you drive your own car or take the wagon, it is a chance to relax, laugh and enjoy the scenery and a generous variety of animals. On one of our visits we came around a curve and saw baby water buffalo being born. Another visit a mom pig was giving... More

Awesome place to visit with the family. The kids love feeding the animals that will come right up to your vehicle. Just be careful for the "bucket" grabbers so tell the kids to hang on tight. Petting zoo and all the goats are awesome. Play ground, picnic areas, birthday parties - Lazy 5 has it all.

Fun, fun, fun for kids and grown-up alike. Lots to see and do. Make reservations so you can get on a wagon, more fun that way, but you can drive your car through too.

Went several times. School trips and on our own as well. If your kids enjoy or think they may enjoy seeing animals close up as well as being able to feed some right out of their hand this is a must try.

I went here back in 2001-02 with my college class as a fun day off and boy was it ever just that. You could either ride on the carriage or drive your own vehicle thru. We did the carriages first with the guides and bought feed to give the animals. They would eat right out of your hands! All of... More

We are locals and try to visit once every two months. Each visit is always fun especially for the kids. Recently we picked pumpkins and did pumpkin slingshot. The kids had a great time. We love riding through and seeing all the different animals. The staff is always nice. Only downfall is the place is cash only. Would be easier... More
