    Something fun to do
    This is a small zoo with frequent "attractions" such as meeting animals and getting the chance to touch them. You can also feed the resident goats, deer and donkeys. There are several cats (Serval, panther, lions) in enclosures as well as other animals throughout the zoo. Fun for a short visit - we stayed about an hour. Some of the enclosures were small and filled with concrete - but - the animals all seemed well cared for and well fed.

    A great treat on the Oregon Coast
    The park was clean and the animals looked to be taken care of. The goats, donkeys, deer and sheep were a treat and wanted to play. The lions and tigers were mostly out and lying around their enclosures were clean and they look healthy. The monkey was very entertaining. All in all a great treasure of the small animal parks its not a huge zoo with lots of space for the animals but well worth the stop.

    Best Walking Game Park I Have Ever Been To!
    We try to attend this park every year. Despite the negative reviews by some on here it is the closest you are going to get to wild animals. Not like a zoo where you have to look down into a pit about a block away from them. Most of these animals as babies were raised by some of the workers in their own home. Many of the big cats there now slept with their handlers in their beds. Bottles of food made at all hours of the day and night just like a child. So well taken care of. Nothing like some of the posts from the bleeding heart liberals reviews. Where else are you going to be able to get this close to real live wild animals? Up Close and Personal. Their enclosures and the park are constantly being cleaned and fresh water and food available. At one time I held a White Tiger in my arms and fed it some a bottle. Something warm and fuzzy I will rember my whole life. If you do not like seeing animals in enclosure maybe you should not go. But for those who have never been up close and personal with a Tiger or Leopard or a hillarious Chimpanzee Like Daphne she is so much fun. They are not frustrated with their enclosures. When she slaps the plywood loudly and starts laughing she is not angry she is having fun. Talk to her and she will give you raspberries with her tongue. I have never had the chance anywhere else to touch or pet Bears, Tigers, Deer, and save your comes the food comes in for the bear. If you hold the cone up you will get a wave from them for it. A lot of fun for kids and adults alike. If you want to get close and personal with Goats, Llamas, Deer and Donkeys. Walk in with two hands holding cups of food, you will get to know they animals walking around real soon and up really really close and personal. Lol

Worst conditions for caged animals I’ve seen. The primates and big cat all look very, very sad. The only animals that seem to have a semi okay life here are the roaming goats and deer (although there seems to be a lack of fresh water, and care). They should switch to just an open air petting zoo for these animals. The owners should be ashamed. This will be our last time visiting this place.

Felt guilty after for going here.

Cruel conditions for animals. Disgusting environment for guest as well. Big cats and some of the bears are kept in small cages. My dog has a bigger yard and living space. Animals look stressed by screaming children and announcements that blare over a loud speaker to announce what baby animals are available every 20/30 min to pet. One younger bear was in a 8x10 in closed area running back and forth pouncing at the fencing towards people. We didn’t approach it was already stressed and made us sick and we wanted to leave after.

Animals have no natural place to shelter or hide from guest. They are fully exposed, then can’t get away. Lioness looked like skin and bone. One brown bear did have a better habitat but still smaller than a regular zoo.

Peacocks goats all over the place If you still decide to go, know that you will step in poop. No avoiding it. Wear farm boots. You are met immediately by deer and goats waiting to be fed. They wait at the entrance and follow you around regardless if you have a cup of food for them. Poop is everywhere. Smell is strong. Gift /ticket area is dusty dirty dingy.

Skip it.

I don't usually go to roadside zoos, but the name made me think this would be a nicer place than it was.

They have a variety of animals, including big cats, bears, bison, elk, chimpanzees, tortoises, camels, swans & other birds.

I wish they had bigger enclosures for these creatures. In particular, the chimpanzee was obviously angry in its small cage. Most of the cages are made of fencing and concrete without natural grass and dirt for the animals to walk on. They are not going to get healthy exercise here.

There are farm animals and deer that roam freely (watch where you step) and can be fed. Be aware that goats can get aggressive when they think you have food. They may jump up on you or try to eat your clothes.

Overall, this is a sad place.

This is wheelchair compatible, but you might not want to roll through all the goat poop.

Sad and depressing if you have a soul and care for these animals you will leave in tears. The goats and sheep are ok for a small petting zoo but all the other animals are in small cages and bred for profits. There’s elk that are kept in an area about the size of an acre with no fresh vegetation there are bears and monkey in small enclosures it’s something you walk away from with a disgusting feeling I wish I never paid to see this it really hurts your heart

I want to start this off by saying that I genuinely wanted to give this place a chance and give them the benefit of doubt. As someone who has worked professionally with animals, I understand understaffing and how people can misinterpret intentions when it comes to animals (I worked at a city animal shelter for some time and people would assume the worst about when we had to put an animal down and didn't consider how they animal may have been terminally ill or something.) This place was absolutely NOTHING like what the site makes it out to be. Maybe the original intention was good and pure but this place is now overrun with feces, urine, and too many animals without the space, food, water, and stimulation they need to have a good life. The big cats looked thin and depressed and one was in a tiny electrified cage. The other lion had a huge sore on its face from rubbing and pacing. The bears tiny cage reeked of poop and pee and he seemed to be constantly nursing some wound on his paws. The elk had no real place to roam or run, there wasn't even grass in their enclosure!They just sat fearfully on the farthest end of the fence that they could. They had so many goats, deer, and peacocks running loose and freely breeding that there was a mother peacock fearfully protecting her chicks under a bench to the side and would charge anyone who got too close (completely understandable as small toddlers were running around grabbing all the baby goats, deer, and trying to pet the birds.) Other peacocks looked like they were just being used to clip their long tail feathers for sale. I looked in each cage I could and was unable to find water and food dishes in ANY SINGLE CAGE. Seeing an animal looking abnormally thin and their bones sticking out was the norm here it seems. The area by the nursery was swarming with flies and reeked of death...The entire time my partner and I wandered in horror we only saw 2 workers, the front desk lady who behaved like she hated her job and made sure everyone knew that and a younger girl who was only cleaning poop by the front entrance the entire time. I left and was speechless and in tears. Whats going on here is absolutely animal abuse and neglect. These animals need to be placed in a real facility capable of giving them proper care. Not enough staff, way too many neglected animals. My only regret was being in so much shock i didn't even take my phone out and record everything.

Why would anyone support breeding wild animals for captivity? This is sad and disgusting. Taking pictures with animals that are tied up and discarded just so that you can say "I held a tiger"??? Do better!

Sad and depressing! This is a horrific place with small cages and sad/angry animals. This is not a preservation for animals. They breed tigers, lions for money and that’s it. It’s the Tiger King of Oregon and depressing to see. We walked out after 10 minutes. So sad.
