Took the guided tour and saw all the big cats. Guides were terrific despite the heat! It was a lot of fun to see them feed the cats in order to show them off a bit more. Glad we stopped!

This place is a little known treasure. Go and be "Wow'ed" It puts you right up close to big cats and a variety of animals. Its a personal tour (so to speak) of lions, tigers and many more. Come but don't be faint of heart.

Clean, very knowledgeable guides, animals seem very content. An enjoyable way to spend two hours and the entry few is reasonable too.

Beautiful big cats that are obviously well cared for. None of them were pacing. Our guide was well informed and presented each cat with knowledge and personal insights.

It's actually on Highway 199. It is right on the highway, but it did seem to sneak up on us a bit. Plenty of time to stop, though. If you are wondering how far from I-5, it is about 30 miles (40 minutes or so) out of... More

Park is on paved flat pathways and accessible to chairs, although I don't think I saw any for rent. Give them a call and find out unless you can bring your own.

At lease two hours. If you love cats of all sizes, you won't be bored. They interact with the staff and with other cats.

Oregon Coast/Redwoods NP Summer 2015 (2 Replies)
Hello! After a successful tent camping road-trip to Yellowstone and Craters of the Moon this summer, we are thinking of doing a shorter trip from Olympia, WA to the Redwood NP next summer. I've been looking around and see some interesting attractions along the way, but there is SO MUCH. I'd like to figure out what the must-see's are along the way. We have two boys who will be 6 and 3 next summer. They are very good road-trippers. We made the drive from Olympia - West Yellowstone...More

Jed Smith State Park is a great place to camp -- right by the river and by the redwoods. It's also closer to Oregon. It makes a good base camp for a couple of days. Then drive through the redwoods and set up camp at Patricks Point SP. Beautiful coastal scenery, wild blackberries for picking (in season) and native American exhibits.
