Enjoyed the natural setting for animals. Go early in morning for best viewing. The team ride to see larger, free roaming animals was fun. I really enjoyed the experience.

While we were visiting our daughter and her family in Seattle,she suggested that we take a trip to the wild life park that was near her home. It was a beautiful day to visit the Northwest Trek Wildlife Park located in E, Eatonville, WA. Our grandson who is 10 years old loved the experience of seeing wild animals in their... More

In all honesty, I'm not a fan of zoos but, this is a nice open environment for a few animals. There isn't a lot of variety but the buffalo a a real sight! You can take the tram as often as you like while you are there. I didn't care for the bears or cats because I feel sorry for... More

You get to experience wild animals in their natural environment - The tram ride allows you to experience up close more caribou etc out in the meadows and wetlands. Our family really enjoyed this park and would recommmend it to others, as it was recommended to us. The zip lines looked like fun but it was way over our budget... More

Today I took my husband to the NW Trek. He is not native to Washington, so this was his first time. It had been quite a while since I've been, so it was nice to see the animals out on such a beautiful, hot day. We saw bison, a moose herd swim across horseshoe lake, caribou, deer, rams/mountain goats, elk,... More

We took our 5 kids on the zip line. The staff and the manager, Josh, were amazing! Before we left, all of them were talking about when we would be back. Great day and perfect for our family. We can't wait to go back.

The whole place is very nice just to walk around, it's even better when you can learn about the wildlife around there and see all the animals. The only downside about it is that, since I believe this place tries not to affect wildlife too much, sometimes you might not see the animals on every exhibition or in the tram... More

I was in the area on business with an afternoon off and was driving toward Mt. Rainier with the hope of getting a good photo when I stumbled onto the wildlife park. I didn't have a lot of time but I'm so glad I stopped by. The guided tram tour allowed me to experience the wildlife and forest beauty of... More

We took our daughter & her 3 kids 6yrs thru 11yrs. old. This is a MUST SEE for all!! We were 3 adults & 3 kids & it was totally enjoyed by all!! We're all still talking about it. You get to see animals in much larger areas & not just in small enclosures like a zoo. They have animals... More

It has been a good 15 or so years since the last time I visited Northwest Trek so I knew it probably wouldn't be the same but in the end I just don't know if it was worth it. Kind of expensive at $20 a person with not much to see as far as wildlife. We didn't see a single... More
