First of all, they have a LOT of animals. It was a very warm day when we went - high 80's and a lot of the animals don't have any shade. Also, there was water but not a lot. And I'm not sure how fresh...More

My daughter and I took my grandchildren to Dutch Creek for an afternoon and they had a great time! They loved feeding the animals and especially loved holding the baby pig and baby bunnies. I have a feeling that we will visit again!

We almost passed this jewel by. Made feel welcomed from the moment we entered the gate. Animals are accessible and the ease of petting and feeding the animals is unlike any experience we’ve ever had. Everyone is remarkable!

Great time with grandkids! Can hold and feed animals, and staff is great! We enjoyed goats, camel, and bunnies the most.
