Welcome to the Game Ranch!

Deer at your fingertips!Stroll along a mile-long trail on 24 wooded acres and encounter over six hundred highly sociable birds and animals indigenous to the state of Georgia. White-tailed deer, bunnies, buffalo, sheep, kid goats, black bears and a bevy of new-born animals are waiting to be fed, admired and petted on a “nose-to-nose” basis. We specialize in “people-friendly” wildlife.

About the Game Ranch

Located just two and one-half miles east of Stone Mountain on Highway 78, the Yellow River Game Ranch offers a magnificent photo opportunity and a chance to meet wildlife on a close and personal basis.

Explore the rustic trail where newborn fawns are a delightful favorite during the summer months– feed deer who come right up to greet you! Huge bears stand up for special treats and our overhead “catwalk” allows an extraordinary view of a very feline cougar.

You’ll have our animals eating out of your hand– literally! Their favorite treats are available along the trail. Don’t forget to bring your camera and video camera! You’ll capture the magical interaction between your children and our Game Ranch animals.

8:45a – Hundreds looked on as King Carlos and the Royal Family of @MedievalTimes [web site] aroused Beau from slumber….

7:55a – Beau slept in late, probably due to the lack of sunlight filtering through the dense fog….

Official temp: 50 degrees (updated 8:52a). Official time 7:33a
