My husband & I were in the area recently and stopped by. The staff was friendly. Buildings were well worn and in need of renovation. There was a wide variety of animals to see and feed. We each bought a bag of food and walked around feeding the animals. Some were in the open area and others in separate pens.... More

This place is probably better on days when it has not rained. It was simply a huge caged in lot with smaller cages. Some animals ran around free while some were in the cages. You walk freely among the animals and feed them- watch your younger children I saw several have their feed bags ripped from their hands by the... More

We went here on a whim after looking it up on Tripadvisor and I'm happy we went. The deer are sweetly aggressive and so funny! Definitely guard your food! They are sneaky and fast!! It was an enjoyable hour and I would go back again.

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
