Welcome to the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm and Exotic Petting Zoo & Deer...

Welcome to the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm and Exotic Petting Zoo & Deer Farm Riding Stables. You’re going to love our unique barnyard environment, nestled on 143 acres of a beautiful mountain property. Bring the family to meet, pet and feed our friendly animals, including goats, deer, camels, elk, reindeer, emu, zebra, exotic cattle, watusi, zonkeys, and so much more! You can even walk amongst our tame fallow deer. After the zoo, the little ones can enjoy a ride on one of our gentle ponies, led by Mom or Dad. Or, the whole family can take a relaxing horseback ride through our wooded Smoky Mountain home, led by our courteous and experienced guides. We hope to see you soon!

We visited for the first time and can't wait to go again. It's hard to pick a favorite, but I fell in love with a zonkey named Zorro. The deer were also so sweet. I was surprised to find so many animals that I thought I'd never be able to pet that were very friendly. My Grandchildren were unable to... More

Our 11 & 12 yr old granddaughters absolutely loved this place. They hated to leave. Spent forever interacting with & holding the goats. We are so glad we checked it out... finally. Benches are available along the path of you need them.

We started visiting the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm Petting Zoo since 2007 with our family. And they are still one of our "must go to" destinations when we're in East Tennessee. The staff take excellent care of these wonderful creatures. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. We always have a wonderful time. Thank you!

Animals are perfect for children. A little scenic drive to get to but very much worth it. I would go back again to do the horse riding.

This place is greater than 5 stars. We took our son there for his second birthday and he loved it. The animals were all so friendly and loved his cuddles, the staff was amazing and did a great job taking care of the animals and educating the visitors. I was blown away by how many animals you could interact with.... More

Slobbering camels, deer, and kangaroos are just a few of the creatures you can see and touch here. Great staff to answer questions.

I visited with two friends I was traveling with. We were deciding between here and the Rainforest Adventures in the same town. We choose this location because it seemed we could have closer interaction to the animals (and boy did we!) You can feed and pet every single animal in the park (as long as you can get them to...

My wife and I have been coming to Pigeon Forge as a couple for many years now. I would have to say today was the happiest I have ever seen her. She loves animals and today she got to hold, pet, and feed some amazing and beautiful critters. To walk amongst a herd of deer, having a camel eat right... More
