  • Easily my favorite zoo in the state. At Wilderness Trails Zoo you can just tell that all of the animals are taken good care of and there are so many amazing animals to see that you could spend hours just watching these interesting creatures and still only be halfway through the zoo! In addition the staff is very nice and informative if you have any questions and the information posted for every animal is very well written and almost just as informative. Definitely a 5 star experience.
  • We enjoy all your have to offer. Our granddaughter loved the lemurs the best. She wants to adopt him. The bird feeding was exciting for her as well. Plus a nice tribute to Krystal & Buster. They will be forever missed! Plus Sarge! ❤
  • I feel like the enclosures are too small and their budget is not great enough to have the kind of zoo they want to have. I think they have the animals' best interstates at heart, but aren't able to actually meet them.
  • Awesome awesome place. A once in a lifetime experience that you have got to go see. Expect surprises and loads of animals. Ask questions. Don't judge too hasty . A lot if not all the animals were rescued from horrible places and the home they have now is fantastic
  • Lots of empty habitats. Birds need water too! Trying to see the unhappy animals through 3 fences was next to impossible. Didn't tell us reptile area was closed. Monkey was so bored he walked around in a 4ft circle. Tiny shelters for large animals. Neglect. Well check out my pics and you decide.
