Classic Experience

In 1951, Russ Tollaksen conceived of an idea to show the beauty of deer and other forest creatures in their natural habitat, so he built Wisconsin Deer Park. He managed the park until 1976 when he sold it to his son Peter, who still owns it today, with grandson Aaron now running the park. This 28-acre parcel is home to some 100 deer from seven different countries. Visitors walk through the exhibit to feed, pet and photograph the animals. The staff is always happy to answer questions and provide information about the rich history of Wisconsin Deer Park.

    Wisconsin Deer Park Stories
    2013-07-23I visited WI Deer Park last year and it was incredible. Also if you are worried about younger children angering the antlered animals, there is no need. The bucks are all kept separate and can be bypassed. These deer are very tame and gentle and offer a unique experience for visitors young and old as they are comfortable around humans unlike wild deer. The park also had several other wild animals such as racoons and a variety of birds, If you are passing through WI Dells, Don't Miss it.

    2012-09-01My husband, kids and I visited the Wisconsin Dells Deer Park in July of 2011. We had so much fun. We all loved feeding the deer and some of them followed us around the park. We took so many pictures and have wonderful memories of that day. When we got home I was looking through our camera and I realized that the only pictres that we took of our entire vacation was of the deer at the Deer Park. We told all of our friends and family about it and told them if they go to Wisconsin Dells that they have to go to the Deer Park. We have even talked about going back just for the day so that we can go back and see the deer. They were so much fun to be around.

    2012-05-28I went to Wisconsin Deer Park on 5/26/12. Feeding the deer crackers was so fun! The way they eat the cracker out of your hand was so adorable!
