For family fun, visit the animals at Wisconsin Deer Park. This petting zoo for wildlife is home to Virginia white tail deer, pigs, llamas, horses, goats, emus, lemurs, elk, and bison. The deer, ranging from young fawns to adult deer, run free but are tamed so you can pet them. Buy the specially made crackers on sale at the park to feed the animals (they can't eat human food) for the chance to see them up close.

  • Great park - don't like the idea of animals in captivity but they seem to treat animals ok. I liked the park, location and staff - staff members are super nice. The lady at front counter can be cranky - at least was in my case but it wasn't that bad. People inside the park are super nice.
  • It’s alright I guess. I didn’t like it. My kid did. Animals are pretty mangy looking and sad. Very aggressive in following you around for food. Like everything in the Dells, it’s overpriced and has a cheap feel to it. Few stars for giving my kid a fun time.
  • We were lucky to go on a nice warm fall day. You buy your tickets inside the gift shop and a few cups of food to take with you. Depending on the age of your kids you may need to get an extra couple of Cups and ration them out for them. Otherwise carry a lot of quarters with you because you can load them up along the way. Sometimes they have booths with staff on hand to sell additional cups. We were able to pet numerous deer although somewhere a little bit more aggressive but not in a dangerous way. They were just looking for food and would take them out of your hand if your little ones were holding them close to the deer. it's a really fun time to interact with animals with your whole family. We've gone several times and have always had fun.
  • Loved feeding the deer. All the kids had a great time. From the 17 year old all the way down the other 4 kids to the 3 year old! Loved it. Had to buy a second round of food for everyone!
  • A bit pricey but worth it. The deer are very friendly and come right up too you. Most importantly all animals appear to be in great health and well cared for. There is a large amount of deer and once they figure out you have food ( make sure you buy food) they become fast friends.
