I want to say me and my family had an amazing time. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We will re visit next time we are back. Thank you to all the staff for your hospitality.

My wife and son thoroughly enjoyed the animals here. The goats are funny. The camels are huge and fun, the kangaroos are awesome. We loved the zonkey's (donkey + zebra). The prices are very reasonable, and you can buy feed and apples for the animals. My favorite part was the descriptive signs that depicted the dangers of the animals with... More

We stopped here because it was inexpensive and I have a 14 month old that I thought would like the animals. They have a great selection of animals and you can feed all of them with the exception of the pigs, I believe. Really enjoyed being able to feed and pet the camels. There was a pen for a Llama,...

Thank you for your review. We are thrilled you enjoyed your overall visit! However, you shared valid concerns that we feel should be addressed. Our llama pen is never empty, and it is home to Mo, our rescued llama, as well as his gal pal Ms. Guanaco. If you didn’t see Mo, he was probably inside his shelter. He walks... More

We visited this great zoo in the rain but it was wonderful! Upon check in the girls in the office were super friendly and helpful. We bought two cups of food and an apple to feed the animals. Our 1 1/2 year old son was so excited! We got to go in with the animals and pet and feed them.... More

My boyfriend and I were visiting Gatlinburg for his Birthday, and decided to go horseback riding- for his first time. The sights were beautiful, and the price was right at The Deer Farm riding Stables. Our guide, however, was rude from the beginning. She was unaware and wouldn't stop talking about herself the ENTIRE ride. She made it difficult to... More

I had a wonderful time at the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm with my grandson. We loved being able to feed and pet all the animals. It's a very family friendly place, or for any animal lovers. A good time with out breaking the bank!!!!

We stopped here on the way home from our vacation. There was a decent amount of animals to see and feed. It was neat to be that close to exotic animals. The staff was also very friendly. I would recommend this place to others visiting the area.

Fun little petting zoo, the staff is super friendly & outgoing. The place is pretty informal, making you feel even closer to the animals. All animals appeared healthy & we'll cared for, several staff were doing grounds work while we were there as well. It is also a great drive through the Smokies to get there!
