The caboose was dirty and had an awful urine odor. The sheets on the beds were thin and would not stay on the beds..The idea and location was wonderful but was not maintained.. we took our grandchildren and I felt guilty letting them sleep in those conditions.

If you are an animal lover this is the perfect place to visit and stay. It is just outside of town an easy 10 to 20 minute drive into Peoria or East Peoria. We stayed right in the park. The accommodations were not fancy but they were clean and comfortable. We saw wild deer every day we were there in... More

There is so much to do at this park! There are many animals in their natural habitat, all of which are indigenous to Illinois, as well as reptiles and birds, in exhibits where they are easily observable. There is also hiking, fishing, mountain biking, and lots of special events. You can even stay overnite in a variety of different kinds... More

We went there last Saturday to participate in their annual Olde English Faire. We left Schaumburg at 6 am and got there exactly at 9am when they opened. We had time to look around and had a family meeting to prioritize our visit. We got to ride their mini train to the North and South loops.We saw animals like black... More

Visited this weekend with two other couples - we rented three of the four cabooses for two nights - each couple had a 4/5 year old boy crazy about trains. The kids were beyond excited. Kind of a cross between a hotel stay and camping. (We go tent camping, so we're a bit more used to roughing it.) The cabooses... More

The Cabin on the Hill is a perfect location to unplug, unwind and relax. The cabin has 1 double bed, 2 twin beds and a small sleeping cushion. There is a table and 4 chairs. The kitchen has a microwave, hotplate, dorm size refrigerator and coffee pot. You will need to bring your own plates, cups, silverware, pots/pans and a... More

My toddler and I stopped and enjoyed our visit. The only negative was paying the money for the bus out to the Bison/Elk. It was horrible, the van was stuffed with people and we were stuck behind the driver and my toddler couldn't see anything. It was disappointing all the way around, even the tour ladies were ridiculous (think 2... More

Searching for something fun in the middle of a polar vortex we found staying in a silo at the park to be a real treat on Valentine's Day! Unique Accommodations beautiful setting no matter the season! We will certainly play and stay at WPP again! Next is tent camping!

Went there to celebrate Mother's Day 2014. We had a great time. The giant slide is still a big hit for kids of all ages! The park has been making improvements and continue to make great strides. More animals would be nice to see. I hope the right people stay focused on the task at hand: Bringing family fun to... More
