Lazy 5 provided a great experience allowing my granddaughter to get close to animals she may never see in person otherwise. They provided a great wagon ride and our driver was very knowledgeable.

We took the wagon ride through the ranch, what a great choice. Besides the attractions, our guide, Steve, made the trip that much better. He made you feel like you were on the VIP trip and also riding with your best friend. Highly recommend him...More

Lots of fun!! Great interactive animal experience.... Lots of animals and variety.... You can drive thru in your vehicle but for a few dollars more, take the wagon ride.... Much more fun!!

We love this place. Anytime we are traveling and can work a side trip in to go here we do. You have to get food to feed the animals. So much fun but have a wet towel handy to wipe of the dirt and slobber....More

From one PM until 1 hr before sunset They do not tske credit or debit cards Adults $16, 2-11 $11. Over 60. $11 Feedbuckets are $3.00. Worth getting. Have fun and be prepared to laugh a lot
I read about it being crowded at times (glad to hear they're getting lots of visitors :-) ), but wondering if some days are better / worse than others. I assume weekends are busier? Thanks!

We went on a Tuesday in July & the following year, Wednesday in August. Both times there was a good light crowd. July bit bigger crowd than August.
