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.

We have been here a few times. I love how well treated the animals are. Make sure that you book the wagon ride way in advance.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon and had pre-arranged reservation on a equine-pulled trailer thru the animal reserve park. I recommend springing for the extra cost... the driver was friendly, offered helpful suggestions and interesting bits of information regarding different animals encountered and how to safely feed the provided food...and not feed certain animals. The 1 hour excursion travels over... More

This place is great for the kids as well as adults. The wagon ride is well worth it, spare your car. The guide is very informative. You get to feed the animals and get really close to them. Tons of breeds and different animals. Theres a picnic area with a play ground, so bring your lunch along. The ride lasts... More
