  • Went for Holiday Nights event and had a great time. Very nice event, the zoo staff did a great job. Returned on Sunday because it was the only thing open before 12 pm, and glad we did. Cute little zoo...  more »
  • I hadnt been to the zoo for a few years.. When I walked in I couldnt believe the difference. Wolves, Otters, Eagles, Camels, Chinese Red Pandas, Meercats just to name a few some I never knew they had....  more »
  • Well kept zoo and the monkey licking the glass was definitely the funniest part. We enjoyed our time over there and it made our trip to Fargo memorable. Staff was friendly.  more »

  • The red river zoo is a nice place to go, but the animal selection is limited. I was hoping to see some big cat exhibits like lions or tigers. The main attraction was the red panda, which wasn't quite as exciting. Also, the wolves were a cool exhibit, but they were not very active, which wasn't that great. I'd like to set them at dusk when they're active, or see them while the staff feeds them, if they do that during business hours.
  • It's not bad and you can enjoy a couple hours here. There's not a ton of exotic animals or anything. The place is well kept as far as cleanliness goes and the staff seem nice. Everything else is great. The membership can be used at many other zoos to get in for free or a discount. Prices are $7.75 for children 2-14, $9.75 for adults, $8.75 for seniors (60+), and carousel rides are $2.00. A basic single person membership is 45$ and a basic family membership is $65.
  • We visited for their Christmas season special. Loved it! Our daughter is just about 2 1/2 had a great time seeing, feeding the animals and also enjoyed the carousel and fire they had going.
  • A great place to spend an afternoon with kids. We love going and my grandchildren especially enjoy being "hands on" with the goats and feeding the animals that are allowed to be fed. Lots to look at and you can also enjoy a bite while sitting at a picnic table. The new areas are beautiful and very kid friendly. Also, at the end of our time at the zoo, we all enjoy the beautiful carousel. Great for families with younger children who don't want to travel a long distance to see some unique and familiar animals.
  • This Zoo is one of the most amazing places in Fargo. I highly suggest bringing young kids here along with adults as well. It offers an amazing experience for all ages from infants to the elderly. It is also relitivly cheap to go to as well.

Where to stay in Fargo

Most accommodations in Fargo cluster in the western section of the city, with only a handful sprinkled across the central area. Along Broadway North, you can find a selection of chain hotels offering good access to the city's central business district and the nearby Red River. The area between Rabanus Park and Anderson Park abounds with large budget and mid-range hotels, offering comfortable, affordable rooms and excellent access to the city's zoo. Look just north of this--around the intersection of 13th Avenue South and Highway 81--to choose from a larger selection of motels.
