Great place to visit for both kids and adults. I took three children ages 7, 9 and 20 and everyone had a blast. The facility doesn't look like much from the highway, but we were pleasantly surprised b... read more »

Cat Haven is a 50 minute drive from Fresno or about 20 minutes from the Big Stump Entrance to King's Canyon National Park. I recommend that you stop here on your way to or from the park. However, the ... read more »
It was very nice, the cats were close, and the tour guide was very friendly. Added bonus- my grandmother has a bad knee, so the tour guide took her on the golf cart instead of walking! There is a bit of walking and a few inclines, so be mindful of that.

This is an amazing place, so much better than any Zoo I have ever visited. You see all those wild cats from really close distance and it is really wonderful. I highly recommend to visit this place, but make sure you don't go for your tour with a young, fat, brown hair girl from a gift shop. She could easily wear a T-shirt "I hate my job". She should never guide any tour what so ever, unless she finds a boyfriend. She didn't give out any information without asking, but her knowledge was extremely poor anyway. She was unpleasant and obviously pissed of to be guiding people in a hot day. During the tour she just said the name of the cat, how old it is, than she used funny voices to attract a cat (who completely ignored her) and at the end she said formally "do you have any more questions? No, ok, let's go." Sometimes she said something like a "there is a cat inside, but it is hiding. You can see its picture In a gift shop". If you by chance get this girl, wait an extra hour for another guide. It is worth it. Luckily this place is so beautiful and cats are awesome that we enjoyed it despite the poor guidiance.
A very interesting experience. Unlike any zoo! While I wouldn't encourage anyone to make a day trip out of this, if you are in the area or visiting the Sequoia National Forest, then by all means stop by. As with all things, the tour guide will make all the difference. I would suggest you call to learn when the cats are usually most active. At the end of the day, you'll be glad you checked it out.
Not very energetic staff, animals looked miserable and didn't move. Most were unavailable for viewing either due to being relocated or inside very small sleeping quarters. Was told they get fed once a day.
The guy who ran the tour was very informative. Really friendly cats as well as a cool staff. I'll definitely be returning soon!
