Great for kids

Very nice and clean. Staff went over and above to make sure our two grandchildren enjoyed the experience. They totally loved picking up the baby alligators!

We are from Oregon and wanted the kids to see Gators. We saw gators for sure. It was educational and fun. I enjoyed the park and so did the kids. Definitely worth the time and money.

I am a zoo fan and saw this location driving down I-10 and thought we would give it a shot in the hopes of seeing some great animals. All I can say is this may very well be the worst animal facility I have ever visited. I'm not sure how they manage to stay out of trouble with various wildlife... More

I believe the restaurant is now closed but the park is open. The tour is relatively short but educational. Guides are very knowledgable and professional.

Fun place to take the kids, but timing is everything. Right when you arrive, the kids will immediately be exposed to a host of alligators that are in a sanctuary right at the entrance of the park, so things get started quickly. The issue is that if you don't time it right, you'll either be waiting forever, or you may... More

We went on a Tuesday at 10:30am. No other customers. The intern walked us around entire park giving us information/q&a at every cage. He also took out every creature he could possibly let us hold, touch, or see up close. It's still technically winter so no shows but we got was better in my option. My daughter and I had... More

First off, the staff at Gator Country LOVE what they do, and are passionate about educating the public about these awesome creatures! They make their presentations fun for the kids, but not too silly so the adults don't enjoy them as well. If you get the chance, make sure you ask to hold one of the hatchlings... it's amazing to...
