Wisconsin Deer Park Favorites

I have a really fun favorites post for you today!  We visited the Wisconsin Deer Park while we were in Wisconsin Dells last weekend.  It showed up on our google searches for must do activities in the area and it exceeded our expectations.  We researched and had a blast.  We'd definitely go again.

Wisconsin Deer Park


1. Show up early right when they open at 10:00am.  The deer are hungry and friendly and the crowds are low.

2. Buy crackers when you first get there and then have cash for cones of corn throughout the park.  They also have quarter machines to get food from.  Open the package and break apart the crackers right away.  The deer will grab the whole cracker if you don't break it apart.  We bought 2 packages and would probably buy 3 next time.  They go fast!

3. Your admission tickets are good for the entire day.  You can stay as long as you want or leave and come back in if you want.

4. The deer are friendly, but they really only come close if you are offering them food.

Let me show you all of our favorite moments!

It really was SO COOL to be able to get so close to the deer.  They didn't mind being pet, hugged or fed.  They were curious about us and excited for some snacks.

Olive loved the babies!  She kept finding them and quietly winning them over.  The boys were a little too loud and scared them away.

The deer LOVED Fletcher.  I'm not sure if it was because he was the perfect height or if he's just so sweet, but he hugged every deer that came near.

There were all sorts of animals - elk, emus, deer, raccoons, lemurs, bunnies, chickens, goats, horses, and many different types of deer.

This was about the halfway point.  Kevin bought cones of corn and wasn't prepared for the deer to be so excited.  They ripped one cone away from him!  Then he wised up and realized he should pour a little corn mixture into his hand for them to eat.  Crazy deer!

This was Jessica.  Fletcher named her and she followed him around for a long time.  He walked with his arm around her and she seemed to really like him.

She was my favorite!

They were so excited to see all the different animals!

We kept Leo in the stroller through the whole deer area, but let him roam with the farm animals.  He still got to pet all the deer without us having to worry about him getting stepped on or wandering away.

We would 10/10 recommend the Wisconsin Deer Park!  It was only about 10 minutes away from Wilderness Resort and surrounded by tons of fun stuff if you're there during peak season.

  1. How COOL! I would love to go to some place like this! What a great experience and Fletcher is so cute with his arm slung over Jessica and his other new deer buddies 🦌

  2. So Sweet! I know y'all loved it! We have a place similar to that here and my kids used to love to go!!
