Very Interesting Place! No frills!

Went with our 12 yr of old grandson and he REALLY enjoyed it! We arrived early enough to walk around by ourselves then got the "dinner time" tour. We were entertained! It is a... read more

We visited this park during feeding time and was neat to see how excited the animals were in anticipation of their meal. The bear was extremely charming as it anxiously waited for his food. The staff was very informative and we got to see a wide range of animals from bears to wolf hybrids. I would highly recommend this attraction.... More

We stopped in just prior to feeding time while out exploring during our visit to Pagosa Springs. It's not a big place, but that is part of the charm. You get to see some local wildlife, all of which are non-releasable rescues, and if you are there during feeding time, the caretaker will tell you all about the animals and... More

Rocky Mountain Wildlife park is a small collection of animals worth supporting. Try and get there for feeding time at 4 P.M. May to October or 2 P.M. in the winter. It's a very easy walk around the well kept park.

One of the difference between typical zoo and this one is the typical zoo usually has "exotic" animals of other continents whereas here they house animals of that region. You get see up close bobcat, cougar, elk, fox... We happen to be there when they were doing morning feed which caused the animals to stir as well as the keeper... More

We went here on a whim and are glad we did. We got there just around 4:00 pm in October and were able to see Tammy, the tour guide feed most of the animals. Because it was so laid-back, we just enjoyed our time walking around and weren't too worried about time. The info bulletins next to the animals were... More

This is a facility where rescued animals are on display. This is not a "high dollar" zoo, but is a much smaller facility. Each of the animals is in an enclosure and there is a display on each one describing the species and then provides info about how that particular animal happened to be there. All looked well cared for... More

We got there at 3 and had the place mostly to ourselves until the Feeding Time crowds arrived at 4. Watching the feeding was informative and fun. My daughters loved feeding the goats, bunnies and goats. If you have an animal lover this is definitely worth the time and money.

When I think of a "wildlife park" I think of a drive-through experience where the animals are roaming around. Here, the animals are in large enclosures and you walk a large loop. All the animals had been rescued and seemed quite well cared for.
