We have been here a couple times and have always enjoyed it. On our most recent visit we saw come cloned cats and learned how the the resident male lion doesn't really like the female guides (only they can make him growl on cue!). You also learn a lot about the different cats, and there are many. On our previous... More

This is not a zoo but rather a program to maintain, and provide breeding, of all feline species. Informative guided tour that interests all ages. Many well-cared-for and rare felines in a relaxed environment. Great discussions on genetic diversity, DNA, limited species, and breeding programs. Super up-close viewings since so many cats choose to interact due to their daily individual... More

I'm glad I stopped once but I won't be in a hurry to rush back. The cats are all well cared for, all seem happy and healthy, this facility believes in the cats being cats.

Stoping by wasn't in our plan, but we got done with the cave tour early so we decided "why not?" Plus my husband loves cats! It was so cool and we got to see some really cool cats. We had a great time!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the park. The tour takes about an hour. The tour guides are very informative and take their time explaining the cats to the group. It is very HOT! and quite expensive.

My husband and I had seen the "Great Cat Ambassadors" traveling show at a Renaissance Faire in Colorado and were surprised to hear they were from Oregon. Okay, they are about 6 hours from where we live, so we had never gone, but when the opportunity came to visit a friend in Grants Pass, we knew we had to stop... More

My family had a great experience here on our visit. we have never been closer to or seen so many big cats in one place. We were able to see a lion, tiger, leopard, jaguar,cougar,lynx, and many other exotic cats within ten feet. The zoo keepers guide you through the facility and talk about each animal as they feed them... More

Seemed kind of strange to have a large cat facility out in the wilds of Oregon. We weren't going to stop here, but other reviews were favorable. You have to be part of a tour to see the animals. I think tours start every half hour, but you can join a tour in progress and see what you missed on... More

This is a great place to get to see these amazing animals up close. It's clear that the facility and their staff really care about the animals.

Even my usually jaded husband has gone on and on about this park. Carefully cared for cats, discussed with quite a bit of science (the issues of clones, DNA, natural feeding patterns all came up on our tour in a very reasonable and everyday manner - which was intriguing for the kids to learn more). Of particular interest are the... More
