    • About

      Situated atop the scenic Ozark Mountains on over 450 acres, and home to approximately 100 exotic and native animals, Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge is one of the largest and most well-respected Big Cat sanctuaries in North America. A non-profit organization providing compassionate care and a lifetime home to neglected and abused victims of the exotic pet trade, the USDA licensed facility is a ''Top 10 Attraction'' in Arkansas, and one of the most popular in Eureka Springs. Spend the day learning how African lions; Bengal and Siberian tigers; melanistic and tawny colored leopards; native cougars, bobcats and black bears; and Bam Bam, the playful grizzly bear, found refuge at TCWR. Or enjoy a weekend getaway by staying in one of the RV/tent sites, Safari Lodges, treehouse bungalow or comfortable suites.
