I've been here at least four times and recommend it to anyone, young and old. My three yr old nephew had a blast but so did I!! There is usually a groupon for buy I've get one free. It's an activity that isn't too far away and doesn't require the whole day.

This park is off the beaten path, but well worth the time!!! Everyone in our party had a great time. Purchase food for the animals, and then drive around the park in your own vehicle. The animals come right up to your car! They try to stick their heads in the vehicle for treats. We fed zebras, llamas, emus, camels,... More

We had such a fun afternoon here! It is such an interactive time with the animals. We loved driving through the ranch in our car and the animals would come up to us and stick their heads in the car. At only $9 a person, this was well worth the trip there. It was so funny to be up close... More

This was my second time at circle G and it was still as enjoyable as the first! Groupon frequently features them which makes it even more affordable. Allow about 2 hours to drive thru and the petting area.

Visited on 11/8/14 with family.11 yr, four mid 30's, three 55+. We had a blast! Had no idea what to expect driving up and they don't really tell you when you pay. As soon as you drive in you are right in the middle of a feeding frenzy! All the animals start coming right up to the car, in the... More

We visited this hidden gem on October 20th and had lots of laughs. The drive through the habitat is a lot of fun. Make sure you buy at least three trays of food and remember the first circle is only a small part of the whole drive, so don't overfeed the crazy characters you first meet! Some of their antics...

Not the easiest place to find, but once there, despite the first impression maybe not being the best, the place was great. You drive through the ticket office and gets the offer to buy some food to feed the animals. Make sure you do as it is half the experience, and if you like animals, buy a lot (although it... More

My husband and I came here on a rainy Sunday. We were the only ones there driving through. I didn't think any animals would stop by the car. I was wrong. Plenty came by and we were a little scared when they poked their heads in. Well us being a little scared was the funny part so all we did... More

Got 3 dishes of food ( total was 40.00 for admittance for 3 and food)Animals were immediately spotted. I have fallen in love with the little piglets! I would've loved to have held one. We drove out Jeep so we'd have... More
