This place is not to big but it does have some nice animals. My wife & I enjoyed are visit here but we thought the bear cage should be bigger. I think the kids would enjoy seeing all the different animals.

I found many of the animals here to be in small cages and appear very sad. The bear and lions looked matty. Only the mountain goats and wolf appeared to have enough room. Their "reptile room" was closed when we visited.

They have various North American animals. ie: Black bears, cougars, deer, and a boarding kennel for your dog - if needed. Kids love it. Reasonably costs. Only need about 1/2 hr to see everything.

The animals at Spruce Haven live in poor conditions. There is no habitat for the animals. The owners did nothing to try and recreate some of the wilderness that these animals were born into and need to thrive. The cages are barren, soil-no grass, water...More
