  • The last time I toured a wildlife refuge in a bus was when I was a child at the San Diego Zoo. It was a pleasure riding in a comfortable vehicle that I wasn't driving, so I could enjoy the sites. The ...  read more »
  • My family thoroughly enjoyed this park! It was like non other. You could take a walk through their paths to see grizzlies, owls, and other creatures found around Washington and Canada. There is a phot...  read more »
  • The last tram ride of the day turned out to be the best experience. We saw herds of buffalo, elk and deer. The close up encounters were in the zoo area - very natural exhibits with healthy animals. 
  • Super fun place! The pricing is very good for what you get, you can walk through the whole park (which is like a zoo with animals in habitats) and you get a free ride on the free roaming trolley where you have animals right next to you! Beautiful location and tons of fun
  • The best wildlife park and trail for families! - Plenty of parking with friendly staff guiding you to empty spots - Do recommend buying tickets online to avoid the long ticket line. Will save to good 30 mins!! Head over to the "Staff" room/booth on the left of entrance where the friendly staff members will validate your digital ticket and also book your tram tour. - If you have time, do both the Tram Tour and Wild Zip! It's loads of fun for both kids and adults. (don't judge dads, your kid will beat you in the obstacles, no matter how easy it looks)
  • What is there not to love about this park! If you are new to the west cascades in Washington, you need to visit! This park is a northwest nature specific park. You learn about the flora as well as the fauna. Educational. Beautiful, natural enclosures for the animals. You can tell the staff really truly have a heart for what they do and care about conservation and education. They have a huge playground for the littles to get their energy out, and a place for the bigger "kids" to zip line near the cafe. There are even some short hiking trails. The staff has always been super nice, the keeper chats are so educational and you can get up close to the creature. Just wish they had more keeper talks each day. The tram is a must! Plan to spend the day there if it's your first time. This is worth the price tag for admission, in my opinion.
  • Went there at noon on a Saturday. Friendly employees, and great wildlife tour. We went zip lining and it was a blast! It was cool to see the animals as well.
  • What a great place, for anyone. I will recommend this place to everyone. The tram tour/train ride was my favorite. The wildlife came right up to us literally trying to get us to scratch their antlers, but we didnt. Chipmunks running free and very comfortable with the public 😊 Love that you can bring a back pack and pack in ur own food. Thank you Northwest Trek for allowing us to enjoy this beautiful place with you. Cheers! !!
