The Wisconsin Deer Park is awesome. It allows you to connect with nature--these great animals--in a somewhat forestry setting. Since deer are normally skiddish, even if you have them in your back yard like we do from time to time, it's very cool to be...More

The tickets cost $14 per person. It takes about 1hour to walk around the park. Money well spent. You literally get to hand feed many deer. They also tell you all about the different varieties of deer. They have other animals too-goats, peacocks, horses, buffalo,...More

Animals seemed healthy and happy. Fun visit. $2/ cup of feed, you'll definitely want a few since the deer and goats are pretty hungry and not shy

The Deer Park is "Old School" Dells and still fantastic for young children and animal lovers. A great way to keep kids entertained for at least an hour or two and an experience- feeding friendly deer- that really cannot be done anywhere else.

I highly doubt they are pet friendly especially with big deer running around. You would have to call and ask about discounts.

Yes, we remain open as long as we can in rain. Thunder and lightning, or high winds may impact this, but in general the deer don't mind a little rain :-)

Timbavati or Deer Park (again)? (5 Replies)
We leave in a few weeks for the Dells. I'm debating whether we want to check out Timbavati Wildlife Park, or re-visit the Wisconsin Deer Park. The kids would really like to see the Deer Park again (we visited it two years ago), but I like to check out something new each time we go. We're thinking this might be our last trip to the Dells for a while (want to try someplace new next summer), so this could be our only chance to see Timbavati. Has anyone here been to both? If so, how did they...More

Do not bother with Timbavati. There is very little to see and at $18.95 per person is a rip off. We got in for free with passes from Kalahari wished we had not wasted our time.

Weekend Trip Report (1 Replies)
We just got back a few hours ago from our three day trip to the Dells. It was myself, my husband, and our three kids ages 9,9,7. We also met my Mom, Dad, brother, and sister-in-law there. Friday: We got up early and were on the road by 5:20. We live a little over three hours from the Dells, so with a few bathroom stops along the way were there shortly before 9:00. Perfect timing, as we were there right before the WIsconsin Deer Park opened, which was our first stop. The kids loved it!...More

thanks for sharing the fun report. You enjoyed some of our favorites--Cracker Barrel, Famous Daves and Paul Bunyan's. The Upper Dells Tour I remember from years ago enjoying it. Glad to hear you enjoyed the deer park too.

Hi, DE-Milwaukee: Thank you so much for the info. We'll take note of the restaurant suggestions. We've been to Milwaukee a few times and have done the Domes, botanical gardens, Art Museum and the Betty Brinn. The prices at Discovery World gave me sticker shock, so we're bypassing that. Basically, the plan is to pick up a friend in Milwaukee and drive down to Jelly Belly together. We didn't know how much time we'd have left for additional touring once we got to Milwaukee. Are there any...More
