I've been going to the West Coast Game Park Safari for years, and I love how the owners have worked to improve and upgrade it. I enjoy getting to meet the animals; I've made friends among the keepers over the years, and I enjoy talking with them about their knowledge of the animals. I think this is an attraction better...

Coming here was definitely the highlight of our kid's beach vacation. They loved feeding the adorable wallabies and getting to pet a baby bear cub. I was a little concerned about the health of some poor chimpanzees and cages seemed a little cramped for the size of some of the animals, but maybe they're letting them roam in larger spaces...

Everything I read about this place made it seem like you got to play with the animals. They advertise about being able to play with a tiger, which has been a lifelong dream of mine. That was such a wrong impression. They only had a baby cub, possum, and a ferret to actually hold. But who wants to hold something... More

This is our 3rd time to West Coast Game Park Safari (once with our kids when they were young & twice with our grandkids.) We love the animals, being able to walk among the tame animals, & petting animals that you normally don't get a chance to pet. We will definitely go again when in Bandon, OR.

All outside, fun for the whole family. Can feed the animals. Very unique opportunity to feed a baby bear cub and sheep. We got to hold a possum and skunk! Truly glad we went.

I fed a baby black bear with a bottle, pet a fox, held a possum, held a ferret, pet a skunk. Deer, llamas, donkeys, goats and a few sheep walk the grounds and you can buy and feed them treats. Everyone should go here once :)

We had so much fun here! The herd of deers and goats and peacocks that follows you around looking for food can be intimidating. Tip for fellow travelers, bring a Ziploc bag to carry the feed in and hide it in a purse or pocket to deal with the herd. The nursery land was really neat we pet a opossum,... More

As a place to encounter new animals and get up close and personal, this place was great! You got to feed deer, goats, llamas, donkeys, and peacocks. And we got to pet or hold a possum, Fox, farrett, skunk, cacal (Egyptian Linx?) and a baby lamb. We also got to get pretty close to a tiger. All in all it... More

It was fun for the kids to pet the baby bears but they were rushed in and out so fast. The trainers didn't do a very good job of making it a good memory. Don't offer something if it's not pleasurable. The cats made it worth the whole trip. The chimps were irritated the whole time we were there and... More

This was our second visit to the Game Park and this time we brought our two daughters with us; they are 17 and 25 yrs old and they both loved it! There are a lot of different animals to see and interact with. The park is clean and well maintained. It looks like a tourist trap outside from the road... More
