We almost didn't visit. From the road it looks like a typical tourist attraction. I'm very glad we decided to stop because the tour was so worth it. I was so surprised by the variety of cats and the deep knowledge of the staff. Very professionally run and you can tell they all enjoy working and interacting with the animals.... More

The Great Cats World Park is the most amazing place to visit! The staff is so knowledgeable about all of the different types of cats. They are able to give presentations that both children and adults enjoy. It is a MUST SEE in Southern Oregon!

One of the observations made here was that this is so not a zoo for big cats. In zoos where cats are typically observed, you usually see them pacing back and forth and being confined to their enclosures. At Great Cats (when visitors are NOT there) they are allowed to roam outside their enclosures in the multi acre grounds and... More

You will love it here if you like cats. Here is your chance to get up close & personal (really see into their eyes) with tigers, leopards, lions and other cats. A chance to see some of those species that are probably on the verge of extinction. The staff is very knowledgeable and the animals are all well cared for.... More

The staff was nice and very knowledgeable, they had a load of wild cats. The tour is fun and gets you right up close with all varieties of cats. It's very much worth stopping for.

If you want to hear a mountain lion scream in person or roaring leopards and tigers this is the place. A very well kept clean facility. As with any exhibit its a shame the enclosures aren't bigger but the cats appear to be very well cared for.

If you love big cats, you will feel like you're in heaven at this attraction. You get as up-close and personal as you can, while still maintaining your safety, with white tigers, lions, leopards, snow leopards, and any number of big cats. When they roar, you feel it all the way to the bone. Amazing and fun. But if you... More

The staff knew the different wild cats and was willing to share the information. The only draw back is the tour got to be kind of long but then it might be because it was 90+ outside.

Ended up here after talking to some folks at breakfast at the caves. Upon arrival had our doubts. Decided to trust their recommendation. So glad we did. May have been the highlight of the trip!
