We got to see the alligators being fed, but they had fewer shows than advertised. Lots of opportunities to see alligators in various settings. We loved seeing the baby alligators! They also had lots of other interesting animals: deer, goats, miniature horses, snakes, etc.

Even my 2 year grand children LOVED this place! You can hold an alligator (if you nervy enough). You can feed them also. Have camera ready.

The Alligator Park was a nice little adventure for our young children. The park is small and seems to be well maintained. In addition to the varied areas to see the Alligators there are other small animals to see and feed (goats, miniature horses, turtles, etc). The "feeding show" was difficult to hear, however watching the amazing alligators feed was... More

The park isn't very big and you can see everything in a couple of hours. There are alligator feedings every hour or so and anyone visiting the park should watch one of these. The barricades and fences seem adequate to keep visitors and alligators apart but parents need to keep a close eye on small kids. There are small animals... More

After reading some reviews I was a little nervous about visiting the gator park. When we arrived there it was nicer than I thought. The gator feeding started on time at 11:30. And my kids enjoyed it a lot. They also loved feeding the goats. We stayed for two hour and for the price it wasn't bad. If you have... More

After reading other reviews on Tripadvisor, I had high hopes, but I'm afraid most criticism on here is rather spot on. The idea for the park is creative, however the whole place needs a good power wash. The reptile house is just foul and thick with urine smell. Extremely thick. The Marsh and Swamp sections were enjoyable because they were... More

One of our favorite attractions in the US. We do a lot of road trips and absolutely loved this Alligator Park. So much to see, well worth admission. Very fun gift shop and small cafe.

This is a short 15 minute drive from the town of Natchitoches and makes the kids happy. When we went it was busy but not crowded. It has several swamp areas where you can see the alligators out in the natural setting as well as manmade ponds right there as you walk in so you can see them up close.... More
