    Baraboo is a small town and I would not have expected any zoo at all. This one has around 15 exhibits, mostly farm or forest animals and birds but they did have two wolves, a lynx, two bears and three...  more »

    I grew up coming to this zoo/park. My kids grew up coming to the zoo/park. This is one of many of Baraboo's cultural treasures. The Friends group has done a great job of updating the exhibits and with...  more »

    Delightful! The bears apparently didn't feel like coming out when we visited. Small, well maintained zoo. This is NOT a petting zoo even though you can feed the goats and the goats let people pet them. New exhibit going in, hopefully it won't be long before it's finished.

    Cute little zoo. Emphasis on 'little'. We loved the free ranging chickens, but wondered why the snack bar wasn't open during the posted open times..?

    Had a great time looking at the animals and then playing at the park. Easily missed is trail access to the river walk, make sure to check that out!

    Neat little walk-in zoo. Worth a look. There is a really cool playground just down the hill for the kids.

    Free zoo's are not going to be extravagant, we were disappointed that literally what you see is what you get, there is no back part to the zoo, once you walk in, that's what you're looking at; I did still like it, some exhibits you felt like you could almost touch the aninals and they have animals that most zoo's don't have like 3 species of owls and prairie dogs for example. The zoo also has a park so that's nice, and it's a nice park as well and if you're feeling hungry, there is a walmart with a subway inside not too far away.
