Visitor Etiquette

"Southwest Colorado's best wild animal park. Animal habitats are natural. Don't leave Pagosa Springs—Durango—South Fork without visiting our wildlife park."

Visitors are asked to use common sense when at the Wildlife Park. The animals are used to seeing people but are still VERY UNPREDICTABLE.

So, we request that you do not try to touch ANY of the animals.

Do Not throw anything into the animal enclosures including food, sticks or rocks

Please stay on the paths and do not cross over any barriers. The animals are as close as can be without jeopardizing their safety or yours.

We ask you ( or your children) not to run in front of the animal enclosures for it may only agitate or tease the animals

There is no smoking allowed within the park.

No Pets are allowed in the park.

Cameras are welcome as long as you are not crossing barriers or placing cameras into or through the fences. Commercial photographers are welcome for an additional fee. Call for more information.


Adopt An Animal and you'll get a season pass with the adoption.  More info...
