loved circle g its pretty inexpensive and seriously enjoyable the animals were very friendly but make sure to watch your fingers when feeding them! i will definitely return my favorite part was the fact that the animals actually looked happy and were roaming freely doing as they pleased instead of moping around looking absolutely miserable like in a zoo setting

We visited this place last week. We did enjoy seeing the different animals, but the conditions are deplorable. The animals in the "petting zoo" are in terrible shape. They need groomed and taken care of. There were goats and could hardly walk due to matted hair and untrimmed hooves. There was a baby goat who was deformed and couldn't even... More

I've been to Circle G Ranch 3 times now. I discovered this ranch on my 9 hour drive home to Indiana with my son and my poodle. The first time we sent was great, my son really looked forward to a return visit, he even gave the donkeys names. The second time was great except for a large cow dented... More

We were a family of six that did the drive thru truck safari tour. The best thing we have ever done! You can feed all the animals, pet them, & it is the funniest thing even. See photos. We also did the camel safari a bit pricey but worth it, at $60 a person, you get a walk around the... More

The employees there are miserable and rude! They need to find a job they enjoy! I was gently touching a pig that was freely walking around and was yelled at and told to leave. I thought this was a petting zoo!

The Circle G ranch was more than I expected! We had a great time seeing and feeding all of the animals! I was a little worried about my car going through, but none of the animals caused any harm..they are all very sweet!

Well we read the reviews here on Trip advisor and decided to take the kids. I can honestly say this place is worth every dollar and if I could go there every week I would. I have not laughed as hard as I did here ever. The entire drive home the girls looked at the videos and laughed the whole... More

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.
