- It was OK. Our younger kids absolutely loved it. We (my wife and I and our older son) thought that it was OK. We felt like it was not run very well. Be aware that the baby animals are not just out there to pet all of the time – they bring them out from time to time to... More

Visited the park on a recent family vacation to Bandon. Daughter loves animals. Many animals to see and pet. Park is clean and staff are knowledgeable and friendly. My 12year old loved it and said it was "her best birthday ever". It wasn't cheap, but I guess that comment made it worthwhile!

We have had an opportunity to pet mountain lions, tigers, albino skunks, and had a very personal experience. I've been taking my children there since they were 2 or 3 and now they're 20. They still love it. It's a little overwhelming for the little guys and I recommend not giving the little guys the food.

We brought our sons here when they were kids, now they are 37 and 44! We decided to stop again with our 11 year old granddaughter. I was a little surprised by the number of cars in the parking lot, no longer a "mom and pop" operation! The goats and deer are so much fun for small children to interact... More

Years ago a visit to this kind of out of the way game park was an incredible experience, i remember seeing a male German Shepard running around his pen with a female tiger he was raised with. Clearly he was the dominant animal of the two lifelong pals. I also saw a lion and tiger cub and was able to... More

This was a amazing place to visit. Many animals run free in the park, and love all the attention they get. They also have some endangered animals in protected areas. At times they offer petting of the baby animals which was awesome. The animals seem happy, and well fed, which made the price well worth it. I wish we well... More

Be prepared for the rush of deer looking for a 'hand out' when you walk through the animal gate. Animal food is sold in ice cream cones, all of which are very attractive to the deer and goats. See pictures. The staff was so very accommodating, friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Well worth the visit for adults and our grandchildren -... More

Although some of the animal enclosures aren't ideal, the experience was amazing! We were able to pet baby bears, Sphinx, Bengal tiger, opossum, fox, skunk, deer, goats, etc... The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. You can tell they love the animals they work with.

Great time not far from Bandon. Petting goats, deer and donkeys is great but getting to pet the wild baby animals like bears and wild cats. Amazing!!! Even our 20 somrthing kids had a blast!!

Every time we go visit my in-laws on the Oregon Coast we take the kids and it's amazing. They have a petting area where you can pet a baby bear, a baby tiger etc... depending on the one they have there at the time. It's a great experience!
