Where to start? The place is falling apart. A "special antique collection" of antique cars have flat tires and are layered in dust as if they haven't been touched in years. Fence posts are rotting, most workers refuse to talk to you -- many were...More

It’s pretty much a petting zoo barely any animals but goats... and the animals are not taken care of at all. Surprised this “zoo” still even exists, the staff “zookeepers” are rude as can be and clearly don’t have compassion for animals let alone people...More

the animal cages/containment is really very poor. Hard to say know how well the animals are treated or not but they do not look happy. We assume the zoo meets whatever standards they must but still not well done compared to other zoos. We will...More

I am still disturbed after leaving this zoo. I pray someone truly helps these animals. They need to be taken to an animal rescue sanctuary. The animals act erratic, the cages are way too small for a lion or larger animal. I have visited many...More

If you have money to waste to walk around in the woods, get eat up by mosquitos just to feed some goats, then this is your place. The animals all look sad! This place is pitiful.

I WOULD RECOMMEND GIVING DONATIONS AND SKIPPING THE ZOO. I understand that this was started as a hobby, but then eventually turned into a zoo/farm. More like a sad institution for animals. First of all you are walking around in the woods on dirt/mud depending...More

This zoo is pretty run down. The fences and shelters for the animals are in pretty bad shape. There are tons of goats to feed. Being able to feed them was nice and they were very friendly. Other animals were kept in cages and enclosures...More

This zoo clearly does not know how to care for its animals' health or well-being. The animals were in obvious distress. The only visit I would recommend would be one to request that the animals be sent to qualified sanctuaries. That Myrtle Beach would allow...More
