Dinosaur Gardens - Prehistoric Zoo

11160 US Highway 23 South

As you walk around the garden path you can only imagine what the property and surrounding area was like when the prehistoric sea covered the land while the glaciers retreated, and then when Mastadons roamed the land with the native Indians hunting them, and finally when lumberman were cutting the huge white pines and floating the logs down the Devil’s River to the saw mill on the Lake Huron Shore.  All these thoughts plus the amazing story of Mr. Domke and his eccentric, life-long work to build his prehistoric zoo that tied Christ into the evolution of our world.  You will find dinosaurs from multiple periods of time that range from over 200 million years ago to 34 million years ago.  Animals are represented from all over the world as well from the US and Canada.  We feel everyone who would like to make the ½ mile walk around the property would really appreciate the experience to see the animals for themselves and to imagine what it would have been like to be on earth during the time of the “Dinosaurs”.

Decent attraction but not well organized. Had trouble finding out how/where to pay admission. Could have just walked in without paying. Brief educational descriptions on placards at each statue. Feel like there could be some kind of interactive activities for the children to enjoy to make the fees worth the price. Ok for a one time visit but nothing that makes you want to come back.

cant Believe it’s getting reviews so high. I can’t believe they are real. It was ok at best. Might be cool for very small children. we spent over $50 and 3 hous driving cannot day was it was worth it. Staff was nice and friendly. But can’t say I don’t regret the time and money spent

It’s an nice place for walking. Dinosaurs don’t move, however it’s still enjoyable.
