  • I just read that the game Ranch closed. I am 65 years old and I broke into tears! This is the only place in Atlanta I could take my children and grandchildren for over 32 years to enjoy nature on the trails and the animals that they cared for. It's a shame that the state took over. That's so typical of our system. When they started pinning in the deer I knew they were controlled by an outside source. I will surely miss them! Thank you yellow River game Ranch for all the years you gave us! We appreciate all your hard work and the love you put into your rescued animals!
  • This place used to be so wonderful and extremely educational. Deer roamed free. Hundreds of them and you could pet and feed them. My daughter and nephew when they were young used to love it. I loved it. The deer were well kept aand always taken care of and fed by both owners and visitors The last time I visited with my 21 year old daughter it was so disappointing that the deer were fenced in and that it was done because of a group of people who didn't like them keeping them. It made people see and understand the beauty and imporance of the animals. I loved feeding the bears and all the rest of the animals. They used to have rabbits that kids could go in and sit with to hold.. It just used to be so hands on unlike almost unlike any other animal places you could take your family. I wished they could have it back the way it used to be and let the deer run free amongst all the people. I would definitely pay more to see and visit for lifetime memories.
  • Do not listen to the negative reviews on here. This is the most underrated attraction I've ever been to. The staff was impeccably inviting and talked me into buying some peanuts, corn and carrots to feed the animals. I spent hours throwing peanuts to bears (who'd catch them at will) and corn to goats, donkeys, bison and many more animals. on my way out, they gave me more corn, so I could spend even more time on the trail. I plan on returning in the very near future. Go to this game ranch. You will not be disappointed.
  • I have old VHS recordings of me running around this place when in 93 when I was 3 years old. I used to have the best time here as a child. Brought my four year old son to it and it was incredibly disappointing. I wish they would fix it up. So sad.
  • I loved this place as a child. Several years ago I brought my children and it was wonderful but you could tell they were trying to rebuild from the flood. Brought my children here again today as they were out of school and I was very disappointed so we're my children. Many animals looked neglected or to be in distress. Someone needs to work on rehabbing this place or allow other rescues to take these animals and just shut the doors. It broke my heart to see some of those animals today. It was definitely not worth the money or the time.
