    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
