There are plenty of attractions for families to take in at Reptile Gardens. Stroll through our garden oasis of colorful flowers, lush vegetation, and well manicured lawns. Discover a myriad of ornamental trees, tropical plants, orchids, and bromeliads.

Meet our exotic residents! Enjoy a chance encounter with our notorious saltwater crocodile, visit our legendary collection of venomous snakes, or pet our gentle giants, the Galapagos and Aldabra Tortoises.We also have a few non-reptilian pets – a majestic Bald Eagle named Cheyenne and a coterie of fun loving Prairie Dogs.

Take in a show - watch the alligators and crocodiles do their thing, learn about snakes, or meet birds from around the world. Have fun and enjoy the day!

Exceptional hospitality and clean, neat, well-kept grounds are our top priorities. Earl (the park's patriarch) believed that you can never offer your Guests enough hospitality, nor can your facility be clean enough. We continue this fanaticism for making our Guests happy and offering them a spotless and safe park.

Booking Instructions: Please select the appropriate number of individuals for each activity option. One time admission for use anytime during your stay.
