Wildlife Area
A huge wild animal petting park, West Coast Game Park Safari, houses 450 animals from 75 species. Big cats like lions, tigers, leopards, and cougars are cared for and bred at this facility, and you will have a chance to interact with some of them. You'll encounter free-roaming goats, sheep, deer, and peacocks, which you can feed and take photos with. Times for special interactions with the animals are not specified (they depend on crowds), but listen for intercom announcements while at the park to catch a special presentation while you're there.

  • Please note that the zoo isn't the size of portlands, but I still had much more fun compared to Portland zoo. To us it looked like the zookeepers have a very good connection with the animals that they...  more »

  • We visited again last year and do NOT like this place! "I am aware that some of these animals are rescues, which I would deem as admirable, but they are residing in extremely small cages with low laying tops and ceilings (even the large cats). The chimpanzee "exhibit" is appalling with how small it is. Not only is it apparent that the chimps are unhappy (they throw things at people, excessively rock, throw feces, turn their backs and punch the ceilings of their space), but it's not large enough even for a human being to be kept on a daily basis. Did you know Chimps travel each day 5-8 miles in the wild? 60% of their day is usually spent traveling. This park keeps them two to a cage that is the about 500 square feet with some hammocks and things to climb. It's also sad to see parents of this town who let their children scream disrespectfully at the animals and shout things at them aggressively. That should not be tolerated by the park in my opinion. They are probably stressed or enough on a daily basis. Many of the animals for petting, that roam freely in the park (deer, goats, donkeys and llamas), are too thin I could see their hip bones protruding and their ribs. Growing up around wild game hunting, I can tell you that's not natural. A lot of the deer just stood around kind of staring - they looked tired and worn out. The public restrooms were atrociously dirty and unkempt. As soon as I opened the door, flies swarmed out, there was water leaking out of the toilet, the very large non-enclosed garbage receptacle was full of flies, the toilet was very dirty, and the sink was just as bad. I've actually never commented on restroom cleanliness in any of my yelp reviews, because I get that restrooms can sometimes not be super pleasant. But this was like enduring the movie *Spun* while in an actual condemned crack shack. No excuse. I could not locate where the watering hole for these animals was. I searched for it. The only water I saw was a small pond for the geese, which is not accessible to the other animals. Perhaps they only get water at a certain time of day? Where was the water? The cages are all the same size that they were when I was there yeeaarrs ago. Nothing has been upgraded or expanded upon in 20 years. A little more effort in actually caring for the animals and a bit of money on improvements could really be used here. Until then, I have to keep my paws off and out. I am ashamed of this place and ashamed that I paid money to the uncaring owners."
  • This place is awesome! Free roaming animals to feed. Baby animals you'd not normally get close to, available to pet. (I pretty a tiger, a bear, a bobcat, a fox) The staff are nice. The chain link fencing for the large animals looks a little old school, but the animals look cared for and treated well. Family had a great time here!
  • The trainers and the staff are wonderful here. Respectful of the animals and you can tell that they really love them. However... my big concern with this park is the enclosures. They're so little. Which I don't blame the trainers for, but I wish the poor animals had more space.
  • The best place to come visit some animals and play. You can hold some babies and pet some slightly bigger ones. They educate you on the animals and you can feed some deer, sheep goats and even the peacocks!
  • Most amazing zoo I've ever been too. If it's your first time there though, be prepared to get dirty. The animals free roaming the park are going potty all the time and tend to get it on themselves. The staff was nice and informative even though they had to be very strict with how much they could let us touch the cubs.
