Donkeys, donkeys, more donkeys, lama, lama, lama, more donkeys. Donkeys everywhere. Couple deer, few cows, couple buffalos, 2 camels, A giraffe, A Lion. When I say A, I mean 1. Have never seen so many donkeys, must have been at least 200 of them plus a ton of lamas. Paid $65 bucks to feed a bunch of funky donkeys and... More

We bought 3 cups of food to feed the animals. You need to drive slowly (speed limit 5 mph) because the animals stand in the road and come right up to your car hoping to get a snack! There were a lot of animals, but not a huge variety. If you have a very young child who is easily scared,... More

Yes, the park is old. I took my boys there when they were kids, and they are in their forties. The last time I went, I took their children. We had just as much fun. The twisting road, the hills and the portholes are part of the adventure. It is not the Dallas Zoo. Do a little research before you... More

Not what we remembered, really has run down, roads were not maintained, lots of donkeys and goats should have asked for a refund.

We recently took a trip to Arbuckle Wilderness for my birthday. What fun! We got 3 cups of food to feed the animals which was a lot of fun. Some of the animals are little piggies though when it comes to the feed (I'm talking about you Mr. Camel). It was a nice park and we had fun with the... More

I read some of the reviews and saw that some were worried about the animals welfare. We didn't see anything alarming at all. Although, I will say that I don't see the need for a rhino or lion to be there. Most people can see those two types of animals at a zoo and it's not a draw to go... More

Prices were hard to find so once went in and ordered entry for two and three cups of food I had some sticker shock! The total was $41.55. I'm glad someone left the tip for the extra food because all three were needed and was just about perfect. The roads were pretty tough on my little old hybrid between the... More

At first we didn't see hardly any animals, llamas, donkeys, etc. Then it got better! Zebras, lion, giraffe, long horn cattle, camels.... you should buy Lots of Animal Food!!! We were pleasantly surprised at how much our teenagers and we, enjoyed ourselves!!

Really nice place if you have kids. The camel literally stuck his head all the way in my vehicle and slobbered on me. Emu, Bison, a big longhorn cow, Ostriches, lots of donkeys, big horses and a variety of other hoofed animals. One young male lion in a cage, a giraffe, and a Rino round things out. The road is...

Six year old granddaughter loves this place, she's been several times, and the adults have just as good a time. The giraffe was missing this visit and rather sad are several abandoned, rusty cages but as for the animals that are roaming around they are friendly and obviously healthy. The camels, zebras and ostriches were big hits and of course,... More
