West Coast Game Park Safari, Bandon
Categories: Wildlife Areas, Nature & Parks
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.

We were not sure of this at first and we were really happy we did go in after we left and still talk about it. We were able to feed and pet alot of animals and had the ultimate experience getting to s... read more »
I teach at a small school and I took my class of 10. They opened 20 min late witch I was no impressed with. However they did have a wonderful showcase of animals for the kids to see and touch. The sta... read more »
My husband and I went here and had a blast! We both got a cone of feed for the animals and when we went in the actual park here was the cutest ring tailed lemur who looked like he was meditating. Then... read more »
They have many amazing animals to not only view but touch and pet. There are roaming donkeys, llamas, deer, and goats. They have a baby animal show which allows people to pet many different animals. The handlers are very knowledgeable with all their animals and seem to put the well being of them ahead of everything. I go their about once a year or more depending if they get a new animal. I recently went to see the new baby Snow Leopard.
The lemurs by the door were heavily overweight from not getting the exercise they needed. Most of the animals didn't have nearly enough room for the size of them. Saw a poor little fox just running circles because he didn't have the necessary room to actually run. The baboons clearly had infections that weren't being treated. The tigers enclosure was far too small for both of them. They let farm animals and deer roam free. The donkey was very mangy and clearly not well taken care of, the goats were a tripping hazard. My husband and I saw a lamb licking a pipe that had moisture on it which also gave us great concern on where the water was for these poor animals. Will never return, and plan on reporting for mishandling.
My boyfriend, an I, just took our son there this weekend. I had been there when I was a kid, and was excited, but quickly disappointed after we saw the animals. The main handler was extremely rude to everyone, I appreciate his concern for the animals he was showing, but if he should direct some of that concern to the mangy fox pacing in circles and not eating, or the baby bear with very matted fur and sores, or the little girl that was punching a pregnant goats belly while the parents were laughing, the people that kept taking baby goats away from the mama while they were crying. The condition of 99% of these animals was so saddening. The place is due for an investigation. Although I enjoyed the interaction with some of the large cats, and wallabies, all the other animals weren't healthy at all. Poor staff, poor cages/conditions, and rude staff. Won't be making that trip again, unfortunately.

This is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing few hours. The zoo is very clean, the animals are happy, healthy and well cared for. Many animals run free in the park, and love all the attention they get. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and professional. They have a petting area where you can pet a baby bear, a baby tiger etc... depending on the one they have there at the time. It's a great experience. Well worth the visit for adults and children. Highly Recommended for anyone traveling up and down the Oregon coast and in the Bandon area.
Nice place to visit to take the kids. Lots of animals roaming around with you so the kids can pet them the entire time. Lots of animals means lots of land mines to be mindful of. I wouldn't wear sandals. Every 10-15 minutes they bring out an animal under the gazebo so you can take close up pictures like a one year old tiger (full sized) and other animals. Seemed kind of sketchy being that close to a full sized tiger with about a 4' barrier in front of you. Could easily take down the handler and jump over and let loose on people. There were two other areas where you could pet a baby bear, Lynx, fox and ferrets to name a few. Awesome place to take your children to wow them. I give it only four stars due to safety concerns with that tiger and how expensive it was. Cost over $60 dollars for two adults and three children. That was with a discount too. Plus the handler was yelling at all the kids to not jump up on the barrier or make loud noises, which none of them were. A simple caution to everyone would have sufficed instead of yelling.
