Nice place for kids to visit,

The zoo is well laid out and there is much to see here. For adults, maybe not. I have seen most of these animals in the wild.

I love taking my daughter to this zoo. It does need a little more to it though. The barn with animals is pretty cool. A few playgrounds around the zoo makes it a great stop. I seen a few grills that the public could use which is pretty cool.

This small zoo has a wonderful collection of animals. The first thing you see when you enter the gate are 2 gorgeous wolves romping around in their hilly enclosure. The zoo is nicely laid out with scenic enclosures for the critters. It does not take a lot of time to tour and is a great stop when you are in... More

This zoo was great, although small it has a very nice selection of animals and close access. It is free and would be a great stop for the whole family.

We were looking for ways to kill time with the grandkids and came to this little zoo. The whole thing probably took us an hour or so. Nice little trail from exhibit to exhibit. Animals native to the area - wolves, black bear, etc.

Its a great little Zoo with a very upclose and personal view of animals that you do not get in the bigger zoos. Also no cost but they do have a box for donations.

We went early and had a good time looking at the many animals. Definitely would be a zoo a family could thoroughly enjoy. The exhibits rooms were very person friendly with a good array of things to learn. We would go again.

A small town zoo, free, but to be honest, you get what you pay for in life. This zoo will never compete with a large city zoo--nor should it--but it is a very nice place to take small children for an afternoon.

Wolves and Bobcats and Bears. Oh my! This is a great 'free' (donations appreciated) community zoo to spend an hour or so wandering around. It rests beside a small wetland area to increase the wildlife possibilities. In addition thete is a fish hatchery on the grounds and a barn with farm animals to visit. A very nice family outing.

Thank Heather K
