“Fun during feeding time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

This wildlife park is fun to visit during feeding time. It's really neat to watch the animals come out when they get their food. An employee goes around the park with the food and tells more about each animal. You can also ask any questions you may have. It's really fun for kids. The park is small but the staff are very personable. It's worth visiting but I recommend going during feeding time at 4:00.

“My little girl loved it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

My little girl has a thing for bears and she loved seeing a grizzly. It's small but worth it just to see the big smile on my daughters face.

“what a beautiful bear!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

This is nice place to stop by for about an hour, as it's small size doesn't require much more time. We arrived a little before feeding time at 4pm. The highlights included watching the gorgeous mountain lion rub up against her fence to the call of "here, kitty, kitty" the wolves playing together, and the stunning grizzly bear. She came out of her den at feeding time, and when she stood up to her 7 foot height it was impressive to say the least. My only issue is why would they have an Emu on display, but no bison? And a few reptiles on display would be nice!

“Animal haven.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

This place has animals that can no longer be released to the wild. Ranging from a grizzly bear to an emu - there are only a few animals there but it is in a beautiful natural setting and they are very well cared for. Cost is minimal so it is worth going to.

“definitely go at feeding time - 2pm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Small but fun for kids - feeding time is when you will get to see the animals best and get a short talk by the person working with them, but if you go 30 minutes before, buy some feed and go around and see the animlas without the extra people and let the kids feed the goats, donkey, sheep, etc.

Feeding time lets you watch them feed the larger, more adversarial animals,(bear, wolves, etc).

Athese are animals that canoot be re-introduced the wild, so the admission helps to keep them in good condition and educate the public on local wildlife.
We do not have children with us, but we enjoyed feeding the critters, too!
