Wisconsin Deer Park, Wisconsin Dells

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.

We were a bit frustrated with this place. We kept having issues with them not being open when they were supposed to. It was early in the season when we were there but still, I really hate there is a s... read more »

The Deer Park is "Old School" Dells and still fantastic for young children and animal lovers. A great way to keep kids entertained for at least an hour or two and an experience- feeding friendly deer-... read more »
What a great idea! You really get to walk through the park with deer freely roaming. Yep, I actually got to hug a deer. How many can say they've done that!? There are also other pens with goats, pigs, horses, emus, bison, and similar animals but nothing at all exotic. It was a great time for the unique experience, but truly overpriced for the size of the place (could be walked through in under 15 minutes).
Great place for the kids. Went with a very large group of about 25 with half of that being young children. They all loved feeding the animals and walking around seeing their habitats. You will spend about 1-2 hours here so I feel it's a good bang for your buck. This is a wisconsin dells institution that I have been going to since I was a kid and now Ive been able to take my own child. I hope this place never changes. You
I think the deer need to be fed more hay at the end of the day. Overall it's a nice clean place. One of the original attractions at the Dell's. And still here after 50+ years. They have Eastern European deer also. A little bit more skittish than white tails but beautiful. I've never seen an Austrian deer before now. Buy extra food when you enter and keep it zipped up in a bag. Lot's of fun for kids too.
I think that the deer park was amazing and I would definitely recommend it to all of my friends. The deer are super friendly and let you touch them. They look super happy and well fed! I will definitely come again. I always have a great time!
The deer were literally eating out of our hands! The varieties of deer were beautiful to see, and to have them surrounding us and traveling in herds was so exciting! What wonderful creatures and what an incredible experience for our whole family.
