  • The cleanest and best maintained petting zoo that I have every been at. Tons of attraction to entertain children for hours and hours. Activities can appeal to all ages and is a great value! Our kids i...  more »
  • Great place for the family, friend date or couple date! There is so much to do and it's generally not expensive. I definitely recommend doing the gem mining. Also a great place for Michigan made food ...  more »
  • Attended in early October during the week, so there was pretty much only a school group and a few families there which made it nice. The parking lot has tons of space, so I imagine it can get quite bu...  more »
  • My son LOVES this place, and so do I! There are so many different animals there, and lots of different activities for kids to explore and play. They have a bird sanctuary where you can go and feed the birds and they'll land on you, that was pretty cool. Their gift shop/store area is also very good, they sell homemade fudge and it is so good. We always spend at least a few hours here when we go, there are so many different animals to see and different things to explore you could easily make a day of it. We always go here at least a couple times every season and my son looks forward to it now.
  • Friendly staff, excellent produce, and so many activities and attractions that, after four hours, we actually ran out of time, as our toddlers were wilting. They offer a limited menu inside the marketplace, at okay prices, but the salad, corn dogs, and doughnuts we had were great. Everyone in Michigan has gone to a farm where there is cider and maybe a corn maze. At Lewis, it is done par excellence. The grounds have beautiful landscaping and there are some petting zoo creatures that were off the wall, like a camel, an alpaca, and some Chinese pheasant with plumage that just looked impossibly colorful. Going back ASAP to finish the trip!
  • One of the coolest places to take kids for a day of fun. You have to try the apple cannons in the back. Expensive but well worth the money. Can get expensive though
  • Fun for everyone! Accessable for disabled. Be careful with downgrades in the petting zoo though, they can be steep.On wheels you pick up speed before you realize it is happening. The staff is kind and so sweet. Great fudge too!
  • This was such a fun detour on our way home from our trip up north. We were pleasantly surprised to find so many fun things here. A must visit for anyone!
