  • Wonderful little place that is able to allow you be up close with nature. Great staff, cute little gift shop.
  • The oldest whitetail deer ranch in the US. You can feed them and see fawns, if they have any. The gift shop was very affordable as well. One of the highlights of our trip.
  • Loved it. I work for the Toledo Metroparks back in Ohio just seeing deers on the trails are nice but to actually pet a baby deer and to interact with the females and male's awesome experience
  • It's so much fun and the deer are so cute!! You can even feed them carrots, apples and seeds (All sold at the gift shop here). It's fun for all ages!
  • Friendly staff, excellent rate, kids loved feeding the deer.
