Come and walk amidst a land of enchantment- as you stroll through the park you will be greeted by animals of all nations. You'll feed them by hand, and they'll follow you through the park. Pet these animals from Europe, Asia, South and North America, and Africa. You won't want to miss our NEWEST additions- over 75 new babies born each year! Take a break from the lake. Fish with us in our calm, cool, shaded lagoons. Fish brought in regularly, including catfish, bullheads, and carp. Also, largemouth bass, crappies, rock bass, and bluegill propagated on property.

Visited with three young children. They loved it. Prices are very reasonable. The staff was helpful, kind, and went above and beyond to make our visit great. If you have kids this is a must.

About 2 hours is plenty of time to enjoy the deer and goats, walk around and see all of the animals and even feed the fish in the pond.

The lagoon is in the front of the establishment, you can fish in it and feed the fish. You pass by it on the dirt road you drive in on.
