Owner description: Welcome to the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm and Exotic Petting Zoo & Deer Farm Riding Stables. 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. Or, the whole family can take a relaxing horseback ride through our wooded Smoky Mountain home, led by our courteous and experienced guides. We hope to see you soon!

I took my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter her while my family enjoyed a few days in the mountains. She was scared to actually feed or pet the animals, but she liked watching the rest of us feed them. It seemed to be family-owned and operated business and I would recommend it to anyone with younger children. My only complaint... More

We had a wonderful time feeding the animals! The staff was very nice and most animals are pet friendly! The animals have land to roam and well taken care of. For any animal lover this is the great place to go!

My three year old daughter came to the area for a long weekend. We are staying at a resort with a water park and arcade. When I asked her what she wanted to do today( pool, arcade, or petting zoo), she said the petting zoo. Well, it was a perfect choice. It was a nice crisp, sunny day. The animals... More

The deer are always hungry and if you go inside the pen with them they will nibble on your clothes. I was surrounded and all I could do was laugh. I love it.

My husband and I have been here the past 2 times we've visited Gatlinburg and it is by far my favorite thing to do!! If you're an animal lover, the deer farm is a must. I got 2 cups of feed for the animals and an apple for the reindeer and used every last drop. You can tell the animals... More

Two adults and one teenager went to visit the week of Thanksgiving. We had an awesome time....with the adults enjoying it the most. Each animal was unique and amazing and I can't wait to go back possibly in the spring. Everyone working there was super friendly and answered lots of questions. If you are in the area....GO to this great... More

I really enjoyed this place. I really had to sell this place to my 12 year old niece because she didn't want to come here. She thought it was a little kids petting zoo. When I mentioned it had camels, kangaroos, horses, elk reindeer, deer and goats, she changed her tune. She really enjoyed it along with my other 2... More

We visited the deer farm exotic petting zoo in September with our 1 year old and 2 year old. They both loved it. Our 2 year old did the horse ride which she also loved. The staff were super friendly and the petting zoo was very accessible and clean we will definitely visit the next time we are in town

This is the second time we've taken our 3 year old this year. Prices are decent for the number of animals they have. This is a good place to spend a few hours with kids. We haven't taken a horseback ride yet, but that will come in a few years when my daughter gets old enough!!

My husband and I went here and really enjoyed it. I loved that you could get in the fence with the goats. We bought the apples and a big cup of food to feed all the animals. There were camels, deer, a zonkey, kangaroos, a giant horse and more. Great for all ages. All the animals seem to be taken... More
