See The Cats

Hours & Fees

Tiger Creek is located in beautiful Tyler, Texas, 90 miles east of Dallas, just 3 miles north of the Tyler State Park on Hwy. 14.

Here, among the pine trees and red clay soil, you'll find an exotic collection of real-live tigers, lions, leopards and mountain lions.

Take I-20 to Exit #562, then go North on Hwy. 14 for 5 minutes,  Tiger Creek is on the Right of FM 14 just 3 miles north of the Tyler State Park.

Housed behind two layers of fence, for their safety as well as yours, our cats are easily seen and enjoyed. When they’re feeling especially playful, they can put on a show more entertaining than anything you’ll find on television!

We offer a guided walking tour to all guests Wednesday through Sunday (Monday and Tuesday are self-guided ONLY during the off season: see details below). The tour distance is approx. a half mile walk and takes about 30-45 minutes. After the tour you are welcome to walk around the facility on your own and continue to enjoy the cats.
