  • The Dutch Creek Animal Park was an awesome undiscovered gem until just today. My son and I had a great time. Honestly, I was entertained just watching his expressions! It was surprising to see elk, buffalo, water buffalo, zebra, fox, monkeys, fallow deer, doves, ostrich, long horns, parrots, and countless hybrid herd animals so close to my home city. This place is maintained by people who obviously care about the 'pets', anyone is able to hand feed nearly everything they have along the wagon ride. The gargantuan antlers and horns in such close proximity was QUITE EXCITING! I definitely recommend this place for a Zoo type experience on a budget. Take a bottle of water, its not a short ride (40 minutes is my best guess).
  • This place is a small piece of heaven. The experiences for our two boys being able to touch, see, and feed camels, zebras, long horns, horses, ducklings, bunnies, elk, reindeer, water buffalo, buffalo, birds, pigs, turtles, and many more, was inspiring. There are pony rides and a must do wagon ride. There is also a place to get good burgers, ice cream, fries. The many lovely acres of well manicured land where most of these animals run free and will approach you to eat right out of your hand. Even more lovely in this community are the Amish people that exude kindness, work, and devotion to one another and Christ. We felt so welcomed by everyone there. The only downside was leaving as our boys cried all the way home screaming that they wanted to go back to the farm. 😀
