I have visited here twice with my 7 year old grandchild. She loves it as do I. We learned a lot about the different animals as we fed them from the "hay" wagon. I can't imagine driving my car through it.

If you want to belly laugh with friends and family this is the place to go. It doesn't matter how you look or what you wear the animals are always going to have worse breath than you! Literaly leave there every time with my cheeks hurting. Love this place!

Lazy 5 ranch is a quite unique attraction for the whole family. If you want to keep your vehicle's finish away from the animals, don't feed them.

We did the wagon ride with 5 kids, ranging from 3 to 11. Everyone had a great time. It was fun to see the animals up so close. It was definitely worth the money and I would do it again next time I'm in the area. Watch out for the ostriches. They were the first animals we encountered and they... More

We drove through in our own car and this was one of the most terrifying, hilarious things I've ever done. I wouldn't recommend driving your own car unless you are okay with it being covered in hoof prints and almost assuredly being scratched. Otherwise, it's an excellent detour if you are driving through.

I highly recommend Lazy 5 Ranch! My extended family and I did the wagon ride (had our own wagon) and truly enjoyed every bit of it! We ranged in ages from 6 to 70 and everybody enjoyed it! Even our teenagers had a great time! It was absolutely incredible having the animals that close; our guide was wonderful; and how... More

Great place to take kids and drive around in your own car while looking at the wildlife. Many different types of animals - both big and small. Be prepared to have slime and saliva all over your car... Watch out for kids spilling feed in your car too and remember to bring cash!!

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.
