Been here every couple years for 30 years. There is always something new to see and do. Imagine holding a new born bear or tiger or my favorite a Lynx. Always a great time for the whole family.

honestly, the actual zoo/petting zoo is pretty average. with the long drive for us (and winstons wildlife safari much better and closer) it isnt really worth the trek or the admission price EXCEPT for the animal encounters!! so check the website and see what they are showing before you plan your trip. over the years we have got to pet...

This place is great. We had heard good things about it through friends an we were not disappointed. This safari is very hands on with many of the animals, and educational for the kids. They have "show and tells" where the handlers bring out the animals and the kids get to pet some of them along with tons of photo... More

We love this place. I grew up in San Diego, California and with the fancy zoo there you could never get this close to the animals. I love the staff and the grounds are well kept. The variety of animals is great. We go every year.

Small park but lots of "petting"! Also had special exhibits where you could actually pet baby animals (a lion cub). You can buy ice cream cones of feed for the free-roaming animals (peacocks, goats, deer, llamas, mules) and lots of animals to see (leopards, lions, elk, wallaby, peckeries, lemurs, chimps, and more). Felt bad for some of the animals as... More

This is such a wonderful zoo because you get to pet the animals and have your picture with them. The staff is always friendly and there are always the residents babies for everyone to enjoy. Depending on the time of year you can interact with lion cubs, bear cubs or maybe a tiger cub. The residents are opossums, foxes, skunks... More

My wife and I recently visited the park on our getaway weekend to Bandon. As the first customers of the day, we were warmly greeted at a very helpful member of their staff. Upon paying the very reasonable entrance fee we entered the park and were immediately surrounded by deer, peacocks, donkeys, llamas and goats. After exhausting your feed supply... More

I actually haven't been there for a couple of years, but didn't have that option. This is a real treat for such a small town. The zoo isn't overwhelming like the LA zoo. It is just enough to spend a few hours with the family. The staff is excellent.

Held several animals, interacted with more then I can count. Would like to have stayed here all day! If you plan on buying some food and feeding the deer, goats etc, if... More
