An Adventure Awaits


Wildlife Prairie Park

Our Park has been referred to as a jewel in the North American Midwest. We have also been listed as a top 10 destination to visit in Illinois. Located just outside of Peoria, IL, this 1,800-acre zoological park is home to 60 different species and over 150 animals that are or were all native to the area. Our guests come to learn about and see wolves, bison, waterfowl, black bears, elk, otters, badgers, snakes, bobcats and more!

You will enjoy Our Park’s spectacular natural landscapes, natural wildlife viewing, and more throughout all seasons of the year. Our available event spaces and lodging provide the backdrop for once-in-a-lifetime wedding celebrations, holiday parties, corporate events, school events and quarterly retreats. There is something for all ages and stages at Wildlife Prairie Park… your adventure awaits!
