This place was awesome! A once in a lifetime chance to pet and feed camels, elks, deer, and zebras! Plus goats of course. It was amazing to see these animals up close and personal. There were also baby goats that would melt anyone's heart. You could really tell that everyone who works there does it for the animals. We loved... More

My family went to the petting zoo and the pony ride. We had four young adults, ages 21-26, and six children, ages 3months, 2yrs, almost 4, 6, 9, and 13. All of us enjoyed our visit. The goat pen was the first we encountered, and the one we lingered in longest. It was neat for the kids to get to... More

Visited here with three adult children and a 2 year old grandson. Very nice. Laid out well....enough animals for everyone to enjoy, minimal walking for those that get tired. Food available to feed the critters was fun. Go to their website before visiting for $ off coupon.

This place is not very well kept up and animals do not look like they are taken very well care of. There are very few animals for the price (goats,deer,one zebra, few kangaroos, two hogs,one reindeer, and only couple other animals )! They also charge ten cents for infants which is not much, but I have never seen any place... More

The variety of animals was a surprise. We saw a newborn on our visit and my granddaughter rode a pony. She didn't want to leave.

Awesome place! The staff at the riding stables were very friendly and patient with our kids, esp. our very nervous 5 year old. Horses were well cared for and very tame. Great price! Cheapest you'll find. Petting zoo was clean, animals seemed well cared for. Price of the animal food was reasonable. Definitely recommend....especially the riding stables!

This is a fabulous place to visit with your family. It is away from the main tourist areas, but well worth the drive. I highly recommend following the maps provided on the website. It will save you some driving time if you are traveling from Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. We arrived just when the petting zoo was opening on July... More

The Deer Farm and Petting Zoo will easily become a tradition if you are a regular visitor to the Smoky Mountain area. This is first hand interaction with animals. The staff a very knowledgeable, and accommodating. You not only feed the animals, but you can pick up some of them and truly interact. It is an amazing experience. One word... More
