  • If you are looking for something educational and FUN for your family to do then bring them here. They have a program that teaches children about elephants as well as other animals. They will let everyone touch the animals and take pictures. They have a small pumpkin patch and other games or projects do do as well. They offer a cabins for rent there but we have not stayed in one so I can't comment on how that would be but they look ok. We went during the fall so the change of colors was beautiful in that area. There are other things to do in that area as well. This is a fun outing for your family.
  • The elephant spa experience was truly awesome and something I will never forget. All 3 elephants were docile, calm and well behaved. Would highly recommend it for anyone who loves elephants as I do.
  • We rented two three-bedroom cabins for a family vacation and were very disappointed with the quality, cleanliness and conditions of the cabins. They are in much need of updating, cleaning and painting. The fire pits are very small and no wood is provided. One bathroom floor was sagging and a towel rod came out of the wall. The swimming pool is very small and without any lounge chairs it was not a very relaxing experience to take small children swimming. In the process of coordinating a time to go on ATVs the owner took the earlier time knowing this time worked better for his guests. This was an extremely over-priced location and we have found much better cabins in the area for much more reasonable pricing. Stay at another facility and just come for the activities if you want to spend the money.
  • Everyone was so knowledgable and friendly! From the horseback riding and the zip lines, not to mention the Elephant encounter! Wow so amazing to get so close to the elephants and learn so much about them. Definitely coming back next year!
  • Fun quite farm. Good family entertainment.
