  • Cozy little zoo with a limited number of animals in relatively small enclosures. Definitely needs some upgrades but you are able to get pretty close to all the animals.  more »
  • Considering we were expecting a tiny little zoo, I'm giving this a five because we were beyond shocked when we realized how many different animals they have. Their mission is to take in animals that n...  more »
  • I was sad to see the animals here, but I understand. The trail of regret is very powerful and worth a look.  more »

  • Great small zoo. My 3 year old daughter loved it. The staff was very friendly.
  • I read the reviews of this place and thought it wouldn't be that bad, probably just eco-hippies bashing a zoo. I went there today on a weekday with a friend as something to do and it was actually depressing. We drove up and right past the entrance because it's so small. We walked in the gift shop/entrance and could easily have walked right into the zoo because nobody was standing there. We had to call the 1 employee to the front desk so we could pay. We spent about 1 hour walking around the zoo and encountered some very depressed animals, including some monkeys who looked like starving children in Africa and a snow leopard who probably died a week ago and has been lying there since. There wasn't 1 employee in the zoo and we only saw 2 other groups of people the whole time we were there. How this place still exists I have no idea. Looks to me like this town is not big enough for a zoo. This place should be shut down.
  • Great place to visit for Halloween Spook Trail they do annually. Everything is completed with the help of volunteers and they really go all out!
  • It's a good walk in the woods with wild animals to see ... It's a more natural habitat then some other zoos
  • This zoo is pretty sad. I understand it's a small town and they don't have the budget for much but there are many improvements to be made. Small things like overgrown weeds that cover signs are easy to cut back, yet here they aren't. As of June 2016 there is a sign on the lion cage saying they are expecting lion cubs in the fall of 2015. All of the animals look depressed and don't have enough room.
