Come and walk amidst a land of enchantment- as you stroll through the park you will be greeted by animals of all nations. You'll feed them by hand, and they'll follow you through the park. Pet these animals from Europe, Asia, South and North America, and Africa. You won't want to miss our NEWEST additions- over 75 new babies born each year! Take a break from the lake. Fish with us in our calm, cool, shaded lagoons. Fish brought in regularly, including catfish, bullheads, and carp. Also, largemouth bass, crappies, rock bass, and bluegill propagated on property.

I love to take my two little ones here. It's nothing huge but they love to wonder around and pet and feed the animals. Great and inexpensive thing to do with the kids.

Great experience feeding the animals outside of cages. Although the little goats get jealous and try to take you out. Lol very funny watching a baby goat run, jump, & buck.

About 2 hours is plenty of time to enjoy the deer and goats, walk around and see all of the animals and even feed the fish in the pond.

We went a couple of years back, I believe 2014 to be exact. No lagoon as part of the park attraction. When was this part of the park? They let us in to an area where all the deer were and then that was it. All the other animals were there too of course. Thanks for answering my question.

The lagoon is in the front of the establishment, you can fish in it and feed the fish. You pass by it on the dirt road you drive in on.
