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!

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...

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.
