Great way to get up close to wild animals. Try not to visit right after it rains. It can be very muddy and not good for strollers.

I have been going to YRGR for years. Every time my gbabies visit GA the #1 request is YRGR, always has been for years.
I was so disappointed during my last visit. I found all of the deer behind a fence instead of roaming the ranch.
When I asked why there was a fence between us I was told it was the state making them put the fence up EVEN TOUGH there have been no accidents.
YRGR is still a magical place for all ages where everyone can interact with bunnies, goats, birds, squirrels that run up to you and take a peanut out of your hand, sheep, billy goats, and much more.
However it is so disappointing for us who remember the "good old days" that werent so long ago.
Also I recommend to plan your visit early in the day as the animals are more active.

Bring with you, apples, carrots, celery, unsalted p-nuts. Take your time and enjoy. All the animals are sweet, our 4 year old hugged 3 deer.
