  • Wow this is my favorite zoo to visit, friendly people and staff. I love seeing all the animals, especially the baby one cause their so cute. My all time favorite is all the Big Cats including the Bobcat (Jenga) and also Blueberry the Bear. I spent all day taking photos and walking around talking to the animals and owners Gail and Ron and the workers when they had a few minutes. Grounds are looking nice and well kept. Also had supper at the canteen which was good. Had a great day! :)
  • Brought my son here in May and had a lovely time. You can tell all the animals and the grounds are VERY well cared for. The staff seem hardworking and close-knit like family. My son had his first pony ride and saw lions up close. There are picnic tables throughout if you byo lunch but there is also a canteen, and there is a fenced playground area with picnic tables as well to contain! Entrance price super reasonable.
  • Great place to take the family or enjoy on your own. Lots of animals and you can tell that they're loved. Informative placards about each animal are on display and if you'd like to get even more close and personal the 6:00 pm feeding time allows for a guided tour of the big cats and other animals.
  • Great place to bring the whole family for the day. They have feeding time in the evening. You also might get the opportunity to have the staff let you hold little baby chickens or rabbits. They have information posted at each encloser. As well as staff sometimes have a show and tell. Picnic areas available. Gift shop as well as a cook house and ice cream parlor.
  • Loved the zoo, made it in time for big cat 🐈 feeding, absolutely worth it! Facilities were well kept, amenities were clean and canteen service was fast, staff were nice and helpful. Recommended!
