  • Tiger Creek is set back in the woods with plenty of shade and a calm environment. Our guide was very informative knowing a lot about the big cats. It's an easy stroll. What a wonderful facility.

  • Went there a couple days ago and my boyfriend and I loved it. We went with the "guided tour" so that we could better understand the history of each one of the animals and I am so glad we did! It was well worth it and our tour guide knew exactly what she was talking about and had an answer for every single one of our questions. I would definitely go back :)
  • Amazing place. You will love this place. The cats are well cared for and seemed happy. Max just wanted to play and Bosco was very fun to watch. The bathrooms could use a serious update. The gift shop was great. Can't wait to go back.
  • First id like to say the staff was really friendly and welcoming, however the rest of my experience wasn't as pleasing, when my reservations were made for the enrichment tour I didn't quite catch the name of the animal we were going hands on with so I called back within 10-15 mins from the original called and was told it was a Geoffrey's cat which is no bigger than a house cat and "to clarify the hands on" part I was told that I was not going to be able to pick up the cat and I would only be able to make contact if the cat came up to me other than that I could only play with the cat by toys and such. We then decided to cancel our reservations and told we could but would not receive a refund. When we got there we had to sign forms for liability which is understanding, however, the very last statement on said form clarified that we were NOT allowed to take pictures during our tour which was a HUGE disappointment & was also followed by the fact that we had to share our 30 minutes that we payed $100 for with 4 other people. The cat was cute but extremely energetic so the chance to touch him seemed so little not to mention it felt like we were fighting for his attention bc off everyone else in the room that we were not aware we're going to be there. The refuge employees did take pictures that we could purchase after the tour for $20 on a CD which was kinda pricey for the quality of the photos, extremely blurry and repetitive. As for the tour, do not go on a hot day because we only got to see about half the cats due to the heat which you can't blame the cats however thedon't have enough shade
  • Such a cool place. You can get very close to the animals and the staff is very friendly.
  • I was on vacation near by and decided to look around for things to do. With limited internet access I didn't get to research it much. As we drove in it appeared small but boy were we wrong. A $20 dollar donation gets you a tour with intimate history of every cat and their personalities. Later, they let you freely walk about the property to spend additional time with your favorite cat. My girlfriend and I loved it. We got many great memories and not to mention photos.
