The park is well-maintained and has a large variety of cats. According to the guide, this park is a private collection of animals which are used in breeding programs and are trained for various behaviors and are used in a wide variety of commercial filming. This is not a rescue organization. All the cats are in cages but you get... More

This place was better than expected. They have a large variety of cats and surfing your tour they give each one pieces of meat as treats to get them up close and active. The staff is very nice and knowledgeable and you can tell they care a lot about the animals. This is a must see for old and young!

If you enjoy the big cats such as lions, tigers, leopards, etc., this place is a must see. We had a great time visiting and taking the hour or so tour. The tour guides were very knowledgeable of all the cats and you could tell the cats were very happy with the guides as well. The tour guides provided lots... More

We received a tour from Farrah, and couldn't have been happier with our experience. She was extremely knowledgable, good with the cats, and all of us (2 adults and children ranging from 18 months to 10 years) were completely fascinated! It has nicely groomed trails that we could easily push a stroller on. The enclosures are beautifully well-kept, and the... More

loved this place. The tour guide, Farrah, was wonderful. She gave lots of information, and took time for questions. She seemed very knowledgeable. The facility is not huge but the tour was about an hour. Lions, tigers, leopards and other big and small cats. They have a nice gift shop and snack bar also

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
