Don’t miss out on this exclusive camping experience!
The Roar ‘n Snore is the perfect way to experience the big cat residents at Catty Shack Ranch while celebrating Earth Day! Where else can you camp beneath the stars and listen to the extraordinary sounds of the big cats – lions, tigers, leopards, and more. And don’t forget – on top of camping near our residents, you will receive dinner Saturday evening, a private Night Feeding tour, an all-night bonfire with s’mores, and breakfast Sunday morning!
You must bring your own camping equipment; we do not have any for rent. Coolers with drinks and snacks are permitted – Alcohol is prohibited. All coolers are subject to inspection.
Additional snacks, drinks (sodas & water) and souvenirs will be available the day of the event for purchase (cash, check, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa are accepted forms of payments at the ranch).
