Stopped in on way back from Zion and found it very interesting and fun place. Lots of kitschy items to look at, try the home made ice cream. Younger kids will have fun in petting zoo area and only costs $1 person.

Locals have passed by this place dozens of times and never bothered to stop. It looks like a tourist stop (it IS a tourist stop) and not a place a lot of folks would even consider stopping in. But, it has lots of shopping - lots of junk mixed in with some pretty nice stuff. And, lots of stuff. The odd buildings out front are great for photos - I didn't have my camera along - sorry. But, I'll get some next time I pass by and maybe I can add them later. And, I will stop by again. Not for the shopping, but as a place for a nice burger & fries lunch. I had some of the homemade ice cream and it was pretty good. It was mid-afternoon and I wasn't ready for my evening meal. But, we had been hiking in Zion for a few hours and my hiking buddies were hungry. They ordered the burger and fries special - $4.99 and that included a beverage. Boy, were they ever surprised. All reports were that the burgers were big and juicy and the large order of fries were delicious. The final verdict by our entire party on this first time visit - it will be a regular stop for hiking ventures in the area in the future. Highly recommended!

We didn't take the time to check out the petting zoo - that will be up to you.

This place is great! It has a petting zoo and fake old-West buildings to pose for pictures in. It has some of the most varied shopping I have ever seen! You can buy everything from cowboy boots to samurai swords, even crossbows! They have great ice cream and even unique food like kabobs that include rattlesnake, elk, wild boar, and mountain oysters. (Yes, those kind. Ewww...) The staff is super friendly and always happy to help with any request you have. You can even feed the animals at the petting zoo, which is free to go to by the way. You can buy carrots to feed the alpacas, horses, deer, and donkey. 3 carrots for $1. You can't beat that! The only thing I have to complain about is the animals didn't have enough water to drink. We went on the first day they opened, so that should have been taken care of.
