Drive thru animal park with walk-thru area featuring kangaroos, wolves, peacocks, camels and small hoofstock. Animals appeared in good health and well-cared for.

Loved the place. Great petting zoo and loved the drive through park! Lots of animals to see. The giraffes were amazing and got to feed the giraffes free. A little pricey but it is privately owned. Would highly recommend. Can picnic lunch there with beautiful...More

Fun drive through animal park. They also have a large petting zoo. We had fun feeding & petting the kangaroos & giraffes. You can even hold a snake if you want.

The place is very pretty. I do however think the bears, tigers and monkey exhibits could be much larger. I couldn't imagine sitting in a tiny space all day, in the sun with hardly any shade. Getting to feed the goats and the giraffe was...More

We have been here 2 times in the past month and loved it each time!! We were so excited to feed the animals. My grandkids are 2,3, and 8, each of them enjoyed the animals, the drive-through and the concession stand! We will be back!

This place is depressing. The part where you drive through that has deer and such is really beautiful and those animals seem happy. However, they have random animals throughout in cages that are too small. Baboons and chimpanzees need larger cages. The pony ride looked...More
