You’re going to love our unique barnyard environment, nestled on 143 acres of a beautiful mountain property. Bring the family to meet, pet and feed our friendly animals, including goats, deer, camels, elk, reindeer, emu, zebra, exotic cattle, watusi, zonkeys, and so much more! You can even walk amongst our tame fallow deer. After the zoo, the little ones can enjoy a ride on one of our gentle ponies, led by Mom or Dad.

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

They were sure to check to see who knew how to ride and who didn't and match the horses accordingly. Nice horseback ride in the mountains. Kids had fun.

We came in early to take a 45 minute guided horseback trail and had a wonderful time!!! The staff were knowledgeable and very safety conscientious minded, both great traits :-D The horses were well trained and gentle to ride on. We'd recommend anyone wanting a relaxing and fun time riding horses to check out the Riding Stables at the Deer... More

We are staying in Townsend, and drove an hour to check this place out. So worth the drive! My 3 year old loved it, and so did we! Next time, we will try out one of their trail rides. This time, we just did the petting zoo and pony ride. For the 3 of us, it was about $50 total.... More
