This little zoo is a quaint little gem nestled away in the forest. The staff was incredibly friendly and personal. One lady was a little on the "short" side but she was trying to educate and several very poorly misbehaving field trips buses would not...More

We only live a few miles away and for years we would buy family passes for the season. This is a fantastic zoo to take the entire family.

Can be a little pricey but there are lots of coupons out there. They run great programs with animals up close for the kids.

Maybe I'm jaded, but that was just way too much money for so few animals. I felt like we'd made a huge donation to keep the animals alive.

It was a really nice zoo...and you could get up close and personal with the animals. Enjoyed stopping and getting to walk around without a crowd.

Nice smaller zoo type park. Smaller but enough to look at. Great local attraction for children. Friendly staff.

Wonderful gem. Off the beaten track, but well-worth the time and travel. It's in a natural setting, so you have to watch your step and in some areas it can be a little tricky to maneuver a stroller. All the animals here are rescues and...More

Love having a staff member talk to us about the lions in great detail. Then for the fist time to see them awake and hear them roar was amazing. Very clean place.

Yes. There were two otters. One was sleeping. The other was doing the swim and flip and dive routine much to my four year old son's delight. It looked like one of the otters had a skin condition or injury. Poor little guy... More
Is there a food court or restaurant?

Response from Julio G | Reviewed this property |
There is really no restaurant. Just a snack area. This park isn't that big but has a lot of animals. Suggest eating before getting there or just get something quick there.
