Great place for kids to visit

Very nice for the kids to have the chance to feed the deer and get close to them. Not very big but a nice stop when in the area.

I was driving from NJ to IL and looking for a short diversion for the trip. This was not far off Rt. 80 and a FUN experience for myself and my teenage son. Who knew deer could be so friendly? We purchased a large bag of feed and were warned to be careful - the deer will knock it out... More

Our family loves this place. It is cool to be able to feed the deer and see the other animals. Our kids love it. You have to be careful of the sneaky deer that rip the bottom of your feed bag open to steal the spoils though. It is inexpensive and fun for all ages.

I visited this place about 12 years ago and last year. It was so fun and different. I loved feeding the deer and the billy goats. The peacocks are pretty too. It is funny to watch the animals reactions to what you do. The billy goats bump you when they want your attention. It is funny. Still love this place... More

My family and I when on vacation stopped here after seeing a sign on the highway. This place was awesome! My young children loved it. You were Blessed to feed the animals right in front of you. The deer roam in the area and will eat peanuts from your hands. There are various other animals as well. You'll spend about... More

What a blast. My daughter and I stopped in and we're glad we did. We bought a bag of food for $2 to feed the animals. It was so fun having all the deer surround us, what an experience!

This deer park looks old from the outside but it is worth driving on the pothole filled road to get there! I believe there is a cheap entrance fee, but they charge you to buy food bags. They're actually very affordable, unlike other places I've been! I highly recommend buying the extra large bag! Be careful because the deer will... More

It's a big gravel enclosure with deer in it. There are pens encircling the open area for a few different animals then deer. The admission price is low, the food bags for animals are generous and the kids loved it.
