If you’re a cat lover and looking for a fun adventure with friends or family, you will surely love Great Cats World Park, nestled away in Southern Oregon. With more than 40 different cats, representing 17 different species from around the world, this unique park features some of the largest and rarest wild cats in the United States.
The park features educational tours with their trainers, to allow guests for an up-close view of these beautiful animals.
You can also opt to take a self-guided walk through the park if you’d like! For those who are handicapped, they also provide wheelchairs or walkers.
The tours run all day long, from 11am to 4pm. There is no need to schedule a time, although Great Cats World offers scheduled private tours for large groups of 12 or more. Plan on packing a lunch and spending about two hours to see the whole park. If you jump onto an existing tour, there is a short break at the end then a new tour will start up so you can jump on to catch what you may have missed.
According to their Facebook page, they supply approximately 60-70% of the world with pictures of their cats. Depending on when you go, you may even be lucky enough to hold an adorable baby cat.
The park is very reasonably priced, at $15 per person with children under 3 being free. If you want more information, give them a call at (541) 592-2957.
Find them at 27919 Redwood Hwy., Cave Junction, OR 97523.

The picture of a visitor holding a tiger cub is a red flag – places that allow that sort of thing generally don’t have a good reputation for treating their animals well. And sure enough. . .
The founder of this park has fled from two other states to avoid charges of animal abuse/neglect. USDA approval means nothing.
