When looking for things to do in Oklahoma, I stumbled upon Lost Creek Safari in Stillwater, Oklahoma. This is one of the best things we have ever done! When you show up, it is literally a house with a farm outside. There is a small gift shop where you pay to go visit the animal park and then you walk around on your own. You have the chance to look at everything in the park and spend as much time as you want at each animal. The animals come right up to the fence to see you.
The best part about Lost Creek Safari is that you get to touch the animals and even hold some of them as you can see above. My daughter was super excited to hold a snake, but honestly, I had to pass on this one! I did hold the baby kangaroo and loved it! He was actually falling asleep in my arms. They explained that the baby kangaroo actually lives inside the house in a pack ‘n play and is treated just like a baby. It was even wearing a diaper! They also feed the kangaroo a bottle just like a baby.
When you get to Lost Creek Safari, you can pay $5 extra for a cup full of food for the animals. This is a plastic cup that you can take home and it is well worth it to get the chance to feed the animals. This is for the goats, deer and other animals. When you get to check out the lemurs, someone is there to give you grapes to feed to them. They are waiting and excited to get the snack.
While we were there, we got the chance to watch them feed the spider monkeys. They were jumping all around the cage and playing around. He was giving them fruit and explained that bread is their favorite treat. Lost Creek Safari is lucky enough that some of the local grocery stores donate food to them that can’t be sold, but is still great for the animals.
They also went over to feed the porcupines. They are nice enough that they let him right in the cage with them and one of them even enjoys being pet.
You don’t need a lot of time to go to Lost Creek Safari. It is just outside of Stillwater, but when you go through this exotic animal park it only takes about an hour to visit all of it. I felt like we spent plenty of time with each animal and had a blast, but it didn’t take very long. One thing that really impressed me was that they don’t charge extra for anything. You can feed animals, take pictures with them and just enjoy the park without the fear of extra cost. If you need something to do in this area, make sure you check out Lost Creek Safari! We will be going again in the future!
