CEDAR SPRINGS, Mich. – Curious passersby on M-57, just east of US 131 in Cedar Springs, can’t help but try to get a glimpse of what’s behind a gigantic fence that spans a good part of the roadway. Not to mention, a stagecoach that sits in the front yard of Deer Tracks Junction, too.

In all, there are 80 acres, with 50 acres surrounded by the fencing that holds hundreds of white-tailed deer, yaks, reindeer, goats, cows and now elk, too! Proud owners Kelly, Hillary and their son Tyler started Deer Tracks Junction back in 2003. Kids can also snag a refreshing treat at Plop Plop Ice Cream Shop and get a souvenir at the General Store. Visitors can also hop aboard a stagecoach to check out the property and spot some critters, too. You can also catch a live show in the Jack Bennie Theater and climb all over a train.

The ice cream shop and play area open at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with stage coach tours happening at 4p.m. On Sunday, Deer Tracks Junction opens at 2p.m. with tours also starting at 4p.m.
