  • This is a great family place with plenty to do! The best time of the year to go is for Fall Fest! So many activities and great pumpkin picking!  more »
  • Spent 65 dollars on a rental room with no employees, A/C not working and when they finally came in gave me disappointing information about my party plans. And wasn't informed that we HAD to leave at 5...  more »
  • Do not rent out the classroom at the end of the day. Our experience was cut short by rushing out of the park to be gone promptly at 5. The animals were put away well before closing. We were promised a...  more »

  • Such a fun place! My kids always love the playground and all the animals, but our favorite is the fall harvest fest. The kids love the cow train and we love the hay ride and the corn maze, which you can even do after dark which is super fun. Can't wait till the kids are big enough for the haunted trail. It looks awesome, too.
  • Great clean oak for the kids to play on. It's been themed and my 4 and 6 year old love it. We always take a trip to sit on the tractors and visit the animals in the barn. Nice little gift shop and very clean bathrooms.
  • My granddaughter's birthday party was held here for a bunch of preschool children. Except for being greeted during the setup there was no one available to ask questions too or to give information to the kids about the animals. We were pretty much on our own. We did not even know where the items were for cleaning up and had to look around, not even knowing that they would come in and do that themselves. There was just no communication from the staff. But the kids loved the animals from what they could see.
  • Great place for the whole family anytime of year. They host great events for the community and the employees really care about the well-being of the animals and park. Would recommend to anyone!
  • Great for kids to see farm animals and learn a little about farming.They have calves, goats,maybe a pony for kids to see and pet.There are vegetable gardens to see during the summer months. They have events throughout the year that are fun for the family. A trail goes through the park on the west side next to the creek. There's a play area for small kids people use alot.Its all around a great place to go.
