This little animal park is way out of the way... a nice, quiet, peaceful area. We went early on a beautiful Sunday in October and didn't see a crowd at all. We opted for the wagon ride, rather than driving our own vehicle - which...More

This zoo is very well maintained. The animals are well cared for and happy. The people who run the zoo are extremely nice and helpful. Make this a priority trip. The animals come very close, so be aware they may rub your car.

Took our 3 year old Granddaughter today and had a blast! She enjoyed feeding all the animals. The Zebra sticking it's head in the car right in her face scared her a little but she got past it and enjoyed the rest of the trip....More

Had a blast. Kids loved it. Adults loved it. Take an SUV or Jeep, something with a lift gate or open seating to get easy access to see and feed the animals. Beware...the bands of goats that will ambush you wanting food. Trust me, you...More

What a charming little ranch! We took our own car, a Prius, through the gravel paths, feeding elk, deer, goats, zebra, yak, and even bison. I recommend feeding with the palm of your hand, because if you show the white bucket most will dip in...More

I believe adult tickets were $17.00. Senior was $16.00. A large bucket of food was $3.00. Not sure about children. Do remember cash or checks only. It was so much fun! ENJOY!
