Over the years, we've visited the game ranch several times with children. Today, we took our 3 year old grandchildren and will probably not be returning. The place is in general disrepair; there is a seating area with picnic tables midway through, but they were covered with tree limbs, leaves and general debris. One of the men cleaning cages did...

This used to be a great place. It is very run down, many animal enclosures have nothing in them. You used to go in the rabbit enclosure and be surrounded by them. Today there was one. Apparently the DNR made them fence in the deer which used to roam freely and come right up to you. Very disappointed today. A... More

This was my firat time ever coming here and it was cute. I went here on a date and we had a nice time. Next time we will purchase more crackers or corn. The best part was the peacock when it opened up right next to us. That was a beautiful sight.

When my kids were small, we lived not far from the game ranch. We would visit about once a week and made some truly precious memories. Back then there were an abundance of deer, squirrels, ducks, bunnies that were friendly and would walk right up and take food from your hand. I even have a picture of my now 28yr... More

The people are great, the animals appear to be in great shape, and they let you interact with MOST of the animals! Overall a 5/5!

This is an older place that still has some charm left. You walk along a pathway through the woods with fencing and pens along the way. You can hand feed some of the animals... and some you just throw the food through the fencing. There were plenty of chickens, ducks and peacocks. There were also donkeys, buffalo, alpacas and pigs...

Took my grown children and grandson, we had a great time. We fed the animals carrots, peanuts and apples. I'm not sure what all the complaining is about this reserve. The animals all looked super healthy, the place was very clean and the employees were so nice. We'll be going back!
