  • My husband and I were in the capital district and we decided to check this little place out and I am so happy we did! I’m not sure how busy they are in the weekends or during peak season but we went o...  more »

  • Read other reviews and wanted to see for myself. Didn't expect the Catskill game Farm but also didn't expect what we saw. Animals were skinny dirty and sickly looking. Not one animal had food or water...  more »

  • Even though it's small, the staff is very friendly and you'll see a good variety of animals up close. The entertainment show was also good. The animal food is pricey though, so you may want to bring your own carrots. I have to say that the owner is doing a good job building the property up. They should turn the antiques castle into a haunted or room escape attraction.
  • We visited today. The place while has potential, is very run down. Some of the animals they had looked sick, the cows in particular were bone thin. They say the average time spent there is 2hrs but I don't see how. It's very small & overpriced for what it is. The pony ride which costs $8 was enjoyable for my daughter & they had a charming older woman there doing face painting. A one time visit was plenty. Will not be back.
  • Enjoyed up close and personal with the animals however would rather a better healthier environment for them even though many seemed happy conditions could be upgraded easily and affordable.
  • Great local zoo with small amount of animals. Seems a little overpriced for the time it takes to go through. However i understand it cannot be cheap to run a zoo. Tigers bears and monkeys are great to see at a local zoo. Would recommend going.
  • The trails are not scenic as advertised. The grounds were sparse and poorly maintained with debris every where. Our guide had an attitude as if she did not want to work that day, and was very impatient. The animals were lovely to see.
