For years, as a resident of AZ, I have driven by this place thinking it was only for kids. This time I chose to stop and check it out. Very clean site who obviously love their well cared for animals. They charged $12 a person for entry/feed (another $3 if you want to feed the sting rays) and carefully explained which animals got which food. I loved it! The goat penthouse was so funny! The bunnies adorable. The ostriches were a riot and I appreciated the options for feeding them so I didn't have to put my hand out. The birds were a riot - hold the cup tight at the base, they land on you to remove lid and enjoy the nectar. The gift shop was nice and I bought what I thought were 6 chicken eggs (without asking), got home, and discovered they were duck eggs. Still good!

My family- my wife, along with our son and his family of 6, visited this attraction and we were “blown away” by it! It was very well laid out, the animal compounds were neat and very clean, the staff was very accommodating, the animals were wonderful (how often do you get the chance to feed an ostrich?), and the cost was minimal. There is no admission charge- instead you pay $12 for a very generous amount of animal food plus an additional $3 to feed and pet the sting rays.
We had a delightful 2 1/2 hours and enjoyed our picnic lunch on their indoor tables.

My husband and I stopped to stretch our legs on the drive from Phoenix to L.A. What fun! The staff (especially Julie) were incredibly friendly. They must greet hundreds of guests every week, yet their smiles and welcomes were not "robot like". They actually each seemed to be enjoying their roles with both the guests and the animals.

The activity was VERY well organized. From the provided animal feed to the signage, everything was fun and informative.

Our hearts were filled with JOY as we visited the various animals.

We took our 7 and 3 year old grandsons to Rooster Cogburn's last Sunday. I was surprised it is only a 40 minute drive from Tucson.
The Park is laid out nicely, the animals are well cared for and the exhibits are interactive and fun. Feeding the goats on the roof and the Lorakeets by hand was an experience the grandsons ( and grandparents) will never forget. We have driven by so many times and never stopped. Our only regret was no food or beverage vendors were present. Keep up the good work.

We weren’t sure what to expect but the name lured us out there. It was worth the trip! So many animals to feed and your entry fee sets you up to feed them all. It’s worth the extra $3 to feed the sting rays!

We stopped here en route from Pheonix to Tucson and it was a great place to stop, stretch our legs, and do something a little different. For $12 we got food to feed all the animals except the stingrays, which is a little extra. What is provided is plenty.

My daughter is only 4, and honestly it was a bit overwhelming for her. She most enjoyed feeding the bunnies, and the tortoise. She was a little scared of the ostriches, and certainly hesitant with the other animals. She liked seeing the birds, but didn't want to hold the nectar cup. And honestly I get it, there's a lot going on! What she liked most was just seeing the animals. But she overall enjoyed it and I would definitely make this stop again.

Very fun place to visit! The modest admission fee gets you all the food you need to visit the various animal stations. The animals appear to be well-cared for and of course well-fed. Recommend allowing 2 hours for a visit.

Absolutely super place to visit. Inexpensive tickets, you get to feed many varied types of animals from Rabbits to Stingrays, wonderful way to get outdoors, and the people who operate the place are so friendly and warm. The facility is very open, clean and inviting and the animals just love to be fed and petted. They have little donkeys, deer, parakeets, ostriches, goats, bunnies, ducks, Lorikeets that land on your hands to feed, very gentle stingrays and many others. A great place for kids and adults alike. A great break from the intestate drive.

Amazing place. Friendly professional employees. Very clean. Animals obviously well cared for. Designed with great signage to help you understand what to do and laid out well to thin down crowds. Got to do a few things I’d never done before such as feeding a tortoise and a sting ray. Fun and interesting with plenty of helpful staff. I’m from out of state and only regret I can’t take my grandkids there.

Passed this place several times on the road. Decided to check it out and what a blast! We smiled from the time we got there until we left. The animals are hilarious. The staff super friendly and for $12 bucks we got to feed all of the animals. You start with the donkeys beware you may need more food as these characters may eat all you supply. Kiss a goat at the goat kissing booth! And have a Loorakee open the food cup for you. Time not wasted here!
