Why I had never been to lazy 5, I don't know! But it's pretty cool! Camels, alpacas, giraffes etc.etc.. Apparently (and of course) you enter at your own risk, but these are pretty docile animals for the most part. If your around, take the kids...it's a cool thing to see!

First time snowmobiling, love it. Now I'm a pro with Andy and Larissa's help. Great experience. Gals get your own ride; more fun!! The views are spectacular, Larissa shared historic info like it was her first time. Lunch in a "brilliant" (plug to our boot and helper from across the pond), rustic log trapper shack. Multiple terranes; single track through... More

I feel like a little kid every time I come here. My children and myself live Lazy 5. We always take a wagon ride through the park because I don't want my car to get scratched by the animals! The people who work here are very knowledgeable of animals. These animals are well cared for. I am looking forward to... More

This ranch offers UP CLOSE interaction with a variety of animals! It is absolutely incredible. WE chose to take our family through the ranch on the wagon ride. WE also bought an extra bucket of feed...glad we did as we were busy feeding animals at every stop! I would recommend the wagon ride vs. driving through on your own. Listening... More

I used to teach and have been to Lazy 5 many times. A very educational experience and a lot of fun for the children. A ride through wild safari of exotic animals highly recommended for a families.

We met up with some friends on a Friday to drive through the park. I would recommend getting there early, because it was packed. We rode in the back of the pick-up truck. There are lots of backups due to everyone wanting to stop and take pictures or feed certain animals. It took us a solid hour to get through... More

We were two cars of adults. We have never laughed so much on a zoo trip. From entering the gates to the final turn out. We were first in on a Sunday after Thanksgiving. The animals were eager to come to the car. They all have their own personalities which provided much laughter and squeels from all of us. Favorite... More

This facility is very well maintained, all animals look healthy and happy. Driving through the trail made me appreciate the beauty of nature and how amazing animals are. You can feed animals from your car which is awesome. My favorite part was seeing the cute baby pigs running around !! I recommend this to anyone looking for a great experience.
