Went by here with two small children and had a great time. Nice to see local wildlife in the climate they belong in rather than Zoo's with animals not acclimated to Maine.

We love moose, however moose are difficult to see. We were in the area so we took in the park and we were not disappointed. The trails are well kept and the animals appear to be well cared for.

I have finally seen a moose in Maine! This is a sweet park, just big enough. There are moose, coyote, fox, a Bald Eagle, owls, peacocks. The animals here were either hurt or orphaned, then brought to live here. No cages, just natural settings. Wonderful...More
