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...

This place is a blast. The owners are personable and accommodating. You can tell they truly love taking care of alligators. I went during the winter, so they couldn't do the normal outdoor show, but that also means the tour group was much smaller and we got much more personalized attention. We got to hold a variety of alligators, including... More

I went here with my family of 5. I received a military discount which brought our admission price down to $64, which I think is a lot of money. We walked outside and saw a lot of alligators but felt like the enclosures and the park itself was kind of run down compared to what we've seen in the past.... More

We were there att opening, so not much people. The staff was very great and had time to spend with us. They told us about all the animals and let us hold a python, a couple of gators and a lizzard. Very exiting. Super memory from our road trip.

We did not try the restaurant but have heard it was really good. We went to see and feed the gators took our son. He even got to hold a small one. We did check out the restaurant it was clean and smelled awesome.

My husband and I went here today, we were the only people there and got a personal tour by the intern from California (so sorry, forgot your name) he was brilliant and really informed us. We loved holding the alligators and the tiny snake. What a great day out and reasonably priced.

This is a dedicated group that puts on a fabulous show. Alligators, snakes, turtles...we even saw a crocodile. They are also a rescue group. There are also well informed youngsters helping entertain and educate and they are very good with the guest (especially children of the guest). This is not a fancy facility but it is very practical. Great fun.... More

Our 8 yr old boy had a great time. He learned so much and he was so excited. He said over and over how happy he was and how much fun he was having. We bought the adventure ticket so he could touch & hold a small gator and also wade in pool with gators. He also got to sit... More

We drove into Houston from Shreveport and purposely did not eat the whole way to have an appetite when we arrived here. I knew it had been some time since we had been there but when we had been the kids loved tossing fries to the gators, as did I. We showed only to be told the restaurant portion had... More
