We visited this park on a 107 degree day, but it was still worth it. The cats are very well cared for and hand raised so they respond to the trainers and enjoyed by the spectators. Many of the cats are famous from National Geographic photo shoots as well as calendars. There are several rare or extinct cats in the park. While it is a private park, it is part of the national breeding programs along with zoos so the standards of care are very high. I guarantee you will see more cats than you will see at any zoo because of the relationships between the cats and caregivers. Although safely caged, the cats are easily seen and appreciated.
Tours begin whenever people arrive so you never have to wait around for a tour to start. There is a nice gift shop with cold water for sale when the weather is hot. There is also big canopies and misting tubes near the cat enclosures so its as comfortable as possible during the summer.
It's easy to find - right on Highway 199 right outside of Cave Junction.
