We go every year at Halloween. They have games, rides, and pumpkins for the season. The zoo is well worth seeing and the tour of the fields allows interaction with exotic animals not found in Tupelo. They have food available and can host large groups....More

Last Sunday I carried my 2 grandsons to Buffalo Park. They really enjoyed seeing the the Buffalo and zebras before we went in. Inside they enjoyed the petting zoo and the animals! There was also playground equipment which the boys really enjoyed climbing on.

We decided to go upon reviews. First time. It was just ok. Variety of animals. Daughter enjoyed seeing them. But it was just too small. Unless you take the bison tour, you will be done in literally less than an hour.

I believe so but I would double check their website just to make sure. The hours are listed online as well the phone number.
