You can feed deer and fish. There are other animals like donkey, llamas, goats etc. Not necessary to buy food bc animals will walk right up to you. Lots of peacocks on the property. You can pay extra to fish but have to bring your...More

This was such a wonderful place. The animals were so cute and friendly. We have never had an experience where we could pet and friend deer. They were so very sweet. The staff was wonderful too.

Was nice for very young children to pet and feed deer, but not what I expected. We had a ten yr old and teen. Did not feel it was worth amount charged.

My friend and I visited the lagoon deer park while visiting cedar point for the weekend. Best decision ever! The animals were friendly and the owners were even more amazing. Would recommend 10/10. Kid friendly, teen friendly and family friendly.

About 2 hours is plenty of time to enjoy the deer and goats, walk around and see all of the animals and even feed the fish in the pond.

The lagoon is in the front of the establishment, you can fish in it and feed the fish. You pass by it on the dirt road you drive in on.
