We had marked this place for a stop during our vacation in Sandusky, OH. We made it today and it was everything we thought it would be and more. A family run affair: a petting zoo + fishing in a massive stocked pond (separate transactions). This facility has been in the family for 58 years... and still family run. The... More

Nothing fancy but they do have a lot of deer. Several different types. They even had lots of newborns when we were there (70, I think). They also have several lakes that you can fish in or just feed the giant carp. They have a gift shop as well.

$5 for each kid to fish, and they all caught fish right away. Very small fish, but we were throwing them all back anyway. Owner was not overly friendly, but kids had a lot of fun. Did not visit the deer park, went to fish only.

Getting to feed the deer was so incredible and fun. They followed us the entire time and even allowed us to pet them and seemed to enjoy being petted.Most of the animals appeared to be healthy. My concern came in when we were walking around and looking at the animals in the fenced area. One there was little to no... More

We went in the afternoon as a break from all the roller coasters. My three teenage boys had a blast and enjoyed all the animals. It was an inexpensive fun time.

This place was great, anyone who knows anything at all about animals can tell they're healthy. "The restrooms aren't perfect" ohhh nooo the area you exert your waste isn't pretty!! Ohhh nooo Peta needs to shut this down?? Peta needs to stay far far far away and if you're a supporter of peta why are you going to this place... More

This was really awesome. I would not recommend for small children as the deer can get a bit aggressive with wanting food and might scare or accidently knock over a toddler. For adults or older kids though, it's great. We were the only ones there in between rain storms. There were 6 new fawns! The emus are also incredible. Animals... More

After paying admission (go to their website for discounts), you buy some bags of feed (get multiple $2 bags, which is a better deal than a $5 bag) that consists of corn and peanuts. The deer come right up to you and eat out of your hand. We had never pet deer up close. There are some other animal exhibits... More

Many animals. The deer walk with you and will grab your food bag if you aren't careful! It is a lot of fun. My daughter loves animals so she was just thrilled to be so up close! There are no hand sanitizer stations and I think that would be an improvement since the animals eat from your hands. Great time!

We were in town staying at the Great Wolf Lodge and seen reviews on trip advisor, then decided to check it out. Glad we did...reviews were on point ;) Awesome small deer park with peacocks, deer, goats, ostrich's, and much more. We really enjoyed feeding the animals and getting up close to pet them.
