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!

Had a pretty large variety of animals and I felt like the animals had a decent amount of room to roam around in. We bought a cup of pellets to feed them. This was a great way to allow my children to interact with the animals while buying an item to take home.

Our young children enjoyed stopping and feeding the animals. Our youngest is 4 and had a blast running around with the goats, deer, and roosters. The joys of seeing the children's faces light up with the animals eat straight from their hands is priceless. The staff is very friendly and are very good and explaining the do's and don't's of...

Stopped in here with the kids to feed the animals. They have deer, goats, camels, llamas, reindeer, pigs, horses, elk, zonkeys, donkeys, kangaroos and MORE. You purchase cups of feed in addition to your admission price to feed the animals as you go. You can refill the cup at half-price if needed. You are allowed to enter the goat pen... More

This is a wonderful place for all ages. We took our 1.5 year old he got right down in with the deer and goats! They were super friendly. Prices are a great value. Well kept and friendly staff! It's well worth the drive out!

No one in our party had ever been horseback riding before and we had one child with us who can get easily upset. We honestly did not know what to expect at the end of the little road in the woods that leads to this place but once we arrived the staff were very friendly and made our horseback ride... More

Nice little country drive to the parks gates that were open promptly on time. Met Katie at the office.(same name as my daughter so easy to remember) very informative and friendly. Gentleman at children's pony ride was incredibly polite and informative. Hopefully with continued visitor support the deer park continues to improve. We'll be back on our next vacation.

Love the deer farm. Goats are amazing, camels, zonkeys, watusi, horses, and deer are a great experience too. Staff is friendly, prices cheap, several hours of fun. Make sure to get the big feed cup. You'll need it plus at least one more. Refills are half price.

We went to the Deer Farm to see the animals. We have livestock and animals and just wanted to see more of them since we were on vacation and away from ours. This place offers Deer that you can go in the pens with, Elk, Camels, Kangaroo's, goats, Emu, Zebra and probably a few more that I can't think of.... More

Great afternoon petting and feeding the animals. This was the end of our 10 day vacation and the perfect place to wind down before our flight home. Holding a baby goat, and being able to feed not only deer and horses but cattle and reindeer as well was great fun. Some of the animals were rescue animals and had stories... More
