“Great time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

My husband and I visited the park on our honeymoon. We got to pet a possum, ferrets, skunk, baby fox, baby bobcat, baby bear, and baby tiger. The goats, deer, llamas, donkeys, and peacocks were walking around beside us the whole time. Some animals we were able to pet even though they were inside an enclosure (pacybaras, wallabys) and even the ones we couldn't pet interacted with us a bit. We had a GREAT time and would recommend to anyone that enjoys animals!

“Nice to be able to hold and pet animals”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

This is a zoo/animal encounter facility. They have free roaming goats, sheep, deer, burro and peacocks. You can buy food for them in the gift shop. The animals will follow you around if you have the food. If you don't they pretty much leave you alone. Be prepared for animal droppings and mud (if it has rained). They also have animals in cages. For the most part these are small enclosures which remind one of an old zoo. Something a current zoo would no longer allow. It is not the best environment for the larger animals. The highlight was, of course, the animal encounters. We were able to hold ferrets and possums and pet bear cubs, a tiger cub and many more.
The staff was friendly and were busy cleaning enclosures the entire time we were there.

“Awesome place to take kids!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We had an amazing time visiting this place! All of us loved the free roaming animals (especially the donkey who like to bump people to get attention from them!) When we went, they had bobcat kittens and we got to pet them. Loved the larger felines, too! The llamas and alpacas were just darling and so soft to pet! Our children got to hold some ferrets, too. While it was a bit spendy, it really was worth it!

“Great Family Activity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

The ladies love the baby animals, the kids do, too. Be prepared to be met at the entrance to the enclosed park by deer, goats, pigs, and burros. They expect a handout of food you can purchase inside the shop. Don't disapoint them and you will be rewarded. Expect about 2-3 hours as the park has educational programs to offer about their amimals. The larger animals-tigers and lions are visible but contained like a zoo. Don't miss this spot on your drive through coastal Oregon.

“Animal Lovers Delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Hands on with lots of animals. Wear shoes that can be cleaned up when done. They have a place to clean hands and shoes on way out. Lots of walking and looking. Goats and deer like to nibble on clothes, but no tears found on ours! You can buy feed for them in gift shop. Bring your camera, but they also have a professional there to take pics with animals on your lap! (there is a fee). Where else can you pet a bear! This place is so fun for all ages!
