While vacationing in Northeast Tennessee we took a day trip to this animal park and we pleasantly surprised with it. The staff are very friendly, knowledgeable, and highly efficient in caring for the animals. They show their love for these creatures in their explanation of each animal by name and habitat. It was a lovely tour which is 2 parts, a walk through a petting area and the bus ride around the park to see the animals up close. It is a wonderful way to spend a couple hours with your children.
