The visit to the Parrot Mountain park was nice, expensive and they nickle and dime you for photos, bird feed and hand feeding Lorikeets. I am mostly unhappy because I purchased a Macaw and assured by the owner it was a female. I asked for a hatch certificate but was not given one. The owner took the bird away and... More

I had first visited here about 10 years ago and this place has only gotten bigger and better! This is a great experience, in fact my favorite place in the whole of the Smokies. You'll find a wide range of bird species to enjoy here, both in very large habitat cages and in an incredible "petting" area where you can... More

Parrot Mountain is a great place to stroll and enjoy the wonderful birds of many colors. The facility is family friendly and the photo op enables you to get a close up with several types of birds. The birds are amazing!!

We were initially introduced to a sampling of Parrot Mountain and Garden while we were staying at a Pigeon Forge timeshare. Once a week, an experienced trainer from Parrot Mountain would bring several large conures and do a "show and tell" educational presentation- allowing us to touch and take photos with the birds on us. It was great and actually,... More

We were skeptical, but this is a great 2-3 hours! They have 600+ parrots and a great feeding area. The natural setting and parrot walk are outstanding. You must feed the Lories...$2 well spent. Can't say enuff good things about parrot mountain!

Enjoyed seeing ,feeding, and learning about the birds. A little pricey, but at least your money is going to good use in rehabilitating and caring for these interesting creatures.

We were excited to visit the area. While being on vacation we began missing our animals and while there were people around with their dogs who allowed us to pet and love on them a minute we were still missing our birdie love. Enter Parrot Mountain. I had heard good things about this place and so while we were in... More

Fun time seeing lots of different type of birds on display. You are also able to feed some and get your picture taken with others for a fee, they arrange birds to sit on you arm, shoulder ect for the picture. They are also a rehab spot for Injured birds. This is on the mountain so is hilly but they... More

This was a terrific addition to our trip. A nice long walk among the birds. It was very colorful. We got to feed the Lorikeets.
