Our favorite tip: book/reserve spots in the first wagon ride of the day, get there early, enjoy! (Then visit the petting zoo after your wagon ride). We very much enjoyed our visit to the Lazy 5 Ranch, and want to go back! It was an amazing experience to see these beautiful animals up close, and to feed them by hand.... More

We moved to Mooresville recently and wanted to try out Lazy 5 Ranch. It was supposed to be a warm day, so we got there right when the gates opened- we were the first car through so we got a TON of animal attention. This was a blast for all of us, but the downside was the animals actually jumped... More

My family and I love to visit here any time of the year. It is always fun to see all the different animals and how well they keep this place up. My kids favorite thing is to get a bucket of feed and feed all the different animals. We even saw a month old giraffe. SOOO cute. We always pack... More

Lazy5 is a really fun place to see farm animals, parrots, and more exotics like giraffes or buffalo. My grandson had a blast feeding emu and water buffalo from the tour wagon. Would highly recommend paying for the wagon ride. I drove my own vehicle through once and it was a slobbery, kibbley mess. Beware also of zebra. They will... More

I have been here several times on field trips with children and friends. I think Lazy 5 Ranch is amazing and love how one gets to experience being so up close in person with the animals. The wagon holds about 15 ppl and there are buckets of food provided (more than enough) to feed the animals.The guides are very knowledgeable... More

This place was a nice place to visit and my only complaint was expecting more animals as they no longer have a rhino I did not see any camels and their map they give you is terrible they should make it more detailed so you know what they have such as the animals in the cages and what areas you...

LOVE this place! We visit family in the Mooresville area every year and we have gone 3 times in a row! I have never been to any place like it- the only thing similar is the Six Flags Great Adventure Safari, but here you can feed the animals by hand. The larger animals are a bit intimidating at first, but... More
