Great trip , Had a blast especially with feeding the animals right out of your hands,will return to ride the camels. Plus they were very helpful they allowed us to join a school tour that was heading out when we arrived so we did'nt have to wait for them to return to take us out.

Just returned from our third visit to Circle G. We had been promising our grand daughters that when they were old enough to ride the camels, we would make the trip. Well, the time was here! Our 11 year old Sabrina and her 9 year old sister Lauren, were so excited ! Gumby saddled us up and led our Safari,... More

The Circle G Ranch is one of those unusual places you can take the family to view African wildlife from your vehicle. Zebras, peacocks, emu, Ostrich, Antelope, water buffalo, and many more. Really cool that you can feed them through the window. The kids will get a kick out of it. There's a petting zoo with camels, wallabies, rabbits, and... More

This was my 2nd time there, but the 1st time taking my family with me. (husband, mom, sister, and nephew). I had went with a previous employer and had a great time. We had an even better time today. We loved the animals and interacting with them. My nephew had a blast. We will definitely be visiting again!!

Took our five and three year old grandchildren while visiting. Lots of up close and personal experiences with the animals:) Keep your windows closed if you dont want them to put their heads inside the vehicle. Didn't know til afterwards (was told by neighbor) that if you bring produce from home they will exchange it for feed for the animals... More

Originally, I wanted to visit Rainforest Adventures (which is also close by) but i am so glad we decided on Circle G Ranch instead. We paid a bit over $40 for a family of four and then $10 for 3 boxes of animal feed. Entering the park, you drive through a paved road with a bunch of animals (deer, zebra,... More

The adults almost had as much fun as the kids. It is a farm with animals and all the sights, sounds and smells that accompany them. We will go back every time we come to the Smokies.

This place is soooooo much fun!! If you are an animal lover this place is a must visit! Me and my boyfriend visited today and I absolute loved it! Make sure you get as much feed as you can afford and save some for later if you plan on visiting the petting zoo!
