A small but lovely zoo, perfect for children and adults alike. There are a variety of animals to view and the size of the zoo makes it manageable. A special place.

We had a short time to waste in Baraboo. This zoo is easy to find, right in town. Free. My grandson loved the prairie dog exhibit. It took about 20 minutes to look at all the animals.
