Not for these animals. Poor creatures in tiny cages with no grass or hiding areas. They shut off all the dens during the day so the animals can't hide. They get no peace or privacy they are left to be gawked at all day long. The leopard was so distressed. People where looking him in the eyes and he was... More

My wife and I visited this park (pre kids) back in 2002. We said that when we have kids we would bring them here. We followed through on Memorial Weekend 2015. The kids had a blast. Some of the smaller animals (deer, goats and a donkey) came right up to us expecting to be fed. It was cool to get... More

The West Coast Game Park Safari if fun for kids and adults alike. It is a walk thru park where you can enjoy some animals that wonder around the grounds roaming free. My favorite part of the Game Park is that they have close encounters with baby animals throughout the day. When we were there, I was able to pet... More

Many years ago we brought our kids here and they had so much fun that we decided to stop while we were in the area again. It's not a huge place but there is a lot of interaction with the animals. They gave us a lot of individual attention and educated us about the animals. I was impressed with the... More

We had fun but noticed that most of the animals were in need of enrichment. The bears, big cats and especially the chimps looked bored and confined. This is a simple fix, please provide adequate entertainment for the animals in your care. Thank you.

We expected a drive thru safari but the animals are in cages and you walk thru. The chimpanzee was very talkative and fun and you get to have hands on visits with the baby animals and other exotic animals which is fun. It's not very big but the animals seem well cared for and happy and there's a gift shop.

Myself and Grandaughter visited this sad safari park during Thanksgiving weekend. Being Oregonians the weather of course was rainy, windy and cold, that did not stop us. The price for getting in was a bit high. I wouldn't have a problem with the price if the park had reflected some of the money went towards sheltering these animals during our... More

If one enjoys to visit with animals up close, this is a great place. they have a petting portion, an area where you can hold baby animals, and an area where there are tigers and other big cats. A very pleasant time and would definitely recommend to visit if you are in the area.

It may have been the time of year that we visited, but we were disappointed not to be able to hold any of the feature animals. In fact, we couldn't even pet any of the larger animals. For the most part, there were a lot of sheep, deer, and goats to pet and feed - no different than any other... More

We were exploring north on 101 during a family vacation and came across the safari park. So happy we stopped. We all got to hold a baby bear (Clyde), as well as many other small animals. We saw a Tiger up close and clapped along with a chimpanzee. Wonderful and knowledgable staff as well.
