We got there first thing in the morning as they opened. That's the best time. We got there in time for them to let out the sheep, llamas, and deer and we got swarmed immediately. The deer were the ones who figured out that we had the goodies. The others were just trying to get to their hay bunk. Got... More

I thought it was a blast and very clean. We had a 12 and 8 year old who enjoyed a lot. Definitely buy the food and a lot of it, but careful of the goats head butting. We loved that you can pet the animals such as lynx, opossum, skunk and fox. Staff was very friendly, we will be back.

The animals were kept in cramped, unsuitable enclosures with very little space to move around. Our whole visit took no longer than 30minutes, and quite frankly we couldn't wait to get out of there. To call it a safari park is a joke, it is no more than a disappointing, cruel petting farm.

I was pretty hesitant to stop here after reading the negative reviews. Prompted by several friends who had posted pictures holding baby tigers and the like, decided to give it a shot. This is not a zoo. Nowhere will you be so close up to so many animals- many exotic and animals that you are lucky to just catch a... More

Visited in March 2014, and, although it was a joy to see these animals, I noticed things were not right. The chimps were shivering from the cold & kids were not prevented from agitating them. It was really sad. The big, beautiful bison, as well as the other large hooved animals,could only stand in their small enclosures, when they deserve... More

I should start by saying I didn't have high expectations going in. But, after 6 hours in the car, the kids needed out. It was spendy to get in, 52 for our fam of 4 (kids 8&6) plus $2 for food. The kids had a great time. Feeding the goats was fun, but some were a bit aggressive and would... More

I went when it wasn't busy, so the staff put in extra effort to talk to us and let us see animals for longer. Remember these are not house pets, they get dirty roaming around in the wet Oregon mud and they will get you dirty too, Do no blame GamePark for that.. The caged animals responded well to the...

The people running this place seemed really nice but the conditions the animals lived in was just too sad not to notice. We bought the food to feed the roaming animals and they just rushed us...kind of scary being surrounded by so many critters - especially for a 5 year old. The animals were dirty and many looked unhealthy with... More

I can count on one hand the good experiences we had here. It was appalling for the most part. The animals are kept in extremely small enclosures with no grass or greenery. The chimpanzee was the most sad of all. It was completely stressed, and seemed to be so unhappy and desperate for interaction. It was all alone, and I... More
