Reptile Gardens

We are the largest reptile zoo in the world, housing more species of reptiles than any other zoo or wild animal park. But, we’re not just about the animals! We also showcase a myriad of flowers and flowerbeds, orchids and bromeliads – expanding the park far beyond what Earl could have imagined.

Our second and third generations are dedicated to carrying on our founder, Earl Brockelsby’s, vision, not only by having top-notch displays, but also by offering outstanding hospitality. The State of South Dakota has honored us twice with the George Mickelson Award for Great Service to South Dakota visitors (1994 and 2018), the only organization so far to be honored twice.
