We had a wonderful time at Tiger Creek. The staff is very friendly and informative. There were so many different kinds of tigers and other cats. The kids especially enjoyed seeing the tigers from Animal Planet's Growing Up Tiger as well as Michael Jackson's tiger. It isn't a zoo but a tiger rescue so don't expect zoo type enclosures. The cages are meant for tigers not pets. The grounds are very well kept and it was a nice walk around to see all the animals. It was well worth the drive and if you are staying at Tyler State Park, it is a must see! Take your camera and make sure to visit the gift shop where there are lots of bargains!
