This is a fun attraction. It's not your typical zoo because it's family run and they take the time to talk to you about their animals. This isn't a place I'd recommend wearing flip flops to! Since there are a lot of animals roaming around for you to feed there are droppings pretty much everywhere. This drawback is overshadowed by... More

Bears, cougars and lions oh my! There were more animals running lose than were caged up. The goats and deer will follow you around if you have food ($.50 from the store ) in your hand. We will plan to go back in June so we can pet the bear and tiger.

The only way I could enjoy this place of captivity is if I knew that the poor creatures locked up here for viewing pleasure had some time in a sanctuary where they could have a little freedom even if just for part of the time...What do they do with all the baby tigers that they breed for petting when they...

Wow! I can't believe that my family has driven by this place for the past 25 years and has never stopped. Recently, my family returned to the area for a vacation and I decided that I wanted to do something a little different than the norm on my birthday. We had never visited this park and so I thought, "why... More

This is the best place to visit, to be in touch with animals. We walked to the park and they announced a bear. It was an 8 month old female. The next animal was a lynx, a female younger than a year old. She was very sociable. They let families go together, We sat and she jumped on my lap.... More

This is a great little zoo to spend an afternoon at. It's an easy walk for little ones. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back again!

I visited the West Coast Game Park Safari when I was 19. Back then, you could hold all of the baby animals. Now they only allow you to pet them, which is still very cool! When we were on a vacation in Oregon I made sure that we made the detour to Bandon to see the animals. My husband and... More

I went to West Coast Game Park about 2 years ago. I have to say I only stayed about 5 minutes and had to leave. I got very depressed seeing all these beautiful creatures caged in such small enclosures. I understand that some of these animals may be there because they were injured etc, but the enclosures were so small... More

For an animal park this one had nice employees who were happy to assist and educate all ages. The animals on the most part seemed content and were well taken care of. Having the chance to hold or pet wild animals was the best part for me.
