  • I haven't been to the Yellow Game Ranch in about 12 years and decided to take my grand children. It was awful. The animals look sad, cages were nasty, some of the animals fur looked like they had the ...  more »
  • We've lived in the area for 20 years but this was our first visit. Almost all of the animals approached us and seemed gentle and eager to eat the food we bought for them. Sadly, the trails, pens, and ...  more »
  • Loved seeing the animals and it is a great nature walk. You could bring food to feed the animals to save money. Apples, carrots, crackers and corn  more »

  • A very good value, with a nice shaded trail through the woods with animal exhibits all along the way. Some of the animals are rescues, but you can tell that they are cared for and kept in clean enclosures. Reasonable rates for animal feed (you will definitely want to feed them, which is encouraged) and animals with a sweet disposition. Buy carrots and hard corn kernels, the animals love it! Remember to save carrots for the incredibly sweet Buffalo who need some loving too! Some animals need special feed, which is available through coin machines. Remember to bring quarters! Parents should budget time for the playground and picnic grounds afterwards, and might want to hit up the awesome Alcove coffee house, located on the lake just a short two mile drive back down 78.
  • There are some great things to see here! We loved the bears! How ofen do you get to be mere feet from black bears while feeding them so cool! My 18 month old was over the moon for this place! Lots of birds and livestock! There are still bobcats which are really cool. Huge buffalo! It's not zoo quality by any means but it's fantastic for young animal lovers out there. We'll certainly be back!
  • I have been going to this place since I was a little girl. The last time I visited this place was back in 2010 and it was an awesome experience. We went today and it is a complete dump now. The deer used to be able to roam around and now they are completely caged up. I asked the ticket teller when leaving why this was and she stated that it was because it was against the law to let them free roam......Which is a complete lie. There are not nearly as many animals as they used to have. The inside of the place where you buy tickets is so depressing. They don't have any items for you to purchase for memorabilia and they don't even cook food anymore for guests. I brought my stepdaughter hoping she would have the same experience I had when I was a little girl and we were both met with disappointment. The animals in 99% of the cages look malnourished and sick with no available water to drink. I will be contacting the department of agriculture and hope to have this place reported. I hope that whoever the managers are currently will be replaced and this place brought back to life because all in all it's a complete dump compared to when I went back in 2010.
  • Used to be my favorite place when I was a child. Deer used to roam around the trails and all animals looked happy. Now they're all caged up and look depressed, not taken care of and nearly dead. DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU LOVE ANIMALS.
  • I'm sure this place is great, but a business that doesn't answer their phones and closes without notice is terrible. We drove an hour and 20 minutes with our grandkids to experience this only to find out that they closed early because it wasn't busy. Maybe customer service is the reason it isn't busy. Such a letdown!
