The One Incredible Place In Wisconsin To See Wildlife Up Close
Wisconsin’s natural beauty is without compare, and this little animal park is no exception. It’s filled with several species of deer that are so tame that they’ll eat right from your hand.
Wisconsin Deer Park covers more than 40 wooded acres.
The park has been open for more than 50 years, and it raises and breeds deer for zoos all over the country. You'll find Wisconsin Deer Park at 2183 Wisconsin Dells Parkway, Wisconsin Dells.
You'll cover about four blocks when you wander along the paths through the exhibits.
You'll stay on your side of the rail; the deer are free to come and go.
More than 100 deer live here, and they're very tame and friendly...
...but when they need a break from people, they can hang out on their side of the fence.
The ability to take a break from human interaction keeps the deer healthy.
While you're at the park, you can feed the deer. They'll come right up to you for food!
The park offers special crackers and other deer food that's nutritious for the animals; please leave other food at home.
Several different species of deer call this park home.
You'll see European fallow deer, Japanese silka deer, Virginia white tail deer, and more.
Other animals at the park include pigs...
...and even peacocks.
You'll also visit with bison, elk, llamas, horses, emus and lemurs.
The Wisconsin Deer Park opens for the season in mid-April, so make plans to visit now.
