  • This is a great zoo. For a personally owned zoo that raises all their animals on their own from birth, I think they do a great job taking care of all the animals. Some cages may be small but the animals are happy and the kids love that you can get right up close to all the animals especially the giraffe! The petting zoo is always the best part and they have an amazing playground for the kids. The owners are great and friendly and always come with plenty of quarters because there are tons of goats and a pig to feed. A fantastic zoo that I will definitely keep coming to!
  • Love the small town zoo. Train ride was the best. Very personable. Lots of different animals
  • This zoo makes me so sad. The cages are small, the animals are bored and depressed. The bear's cage in particular is no life for a bear. They have signs talking about the various animals. One monkey, living alone in a small cage, had a sign about it's breed, that in the wild it was a very social monkey that lived in groups...and there it sat...alone. It seems like the owner has an unhealthy exotic animal hoarding problem. Please don't visit this zoo.
  • My son was bit by one of their animals. There was a bench for children to climb onto to see the prairie dogs. When climbing up it, he was bit. They didn't seem very apologetic and didn't even offer any sort of compensation. It most certainly gave me a special memory that I won't ever forget; unfortunately, it wasn't a pleasant one. Edit in response of zoo's facebook response ('We also have multiple signs around the zoo telling you not to put your fingers in cages. If you allow your child to run freely and do whatever he likes it is your own fault.'): And this is a prime example of the attitude of the zoo. My son was right next to me when it happened, not running around freely. The bench was an open invitation to peer into the cage. The cage was where he needed to put his hands to climb up. There wasn't a caution sign anywhere near this purposely placed viewing area. An employee admitted that the prairie dog shouldn't have been able to access the top of the cage. Don't try to chalk this up to negligence of my parenting skills. You should be ashamed of your response.
  • They have lots of animals to see and a nice petting zoo. I actually was really surprised how much animals they had. I was also surprised to see how active the animals were. I think the best part of this zoo is the petting zoo in my opinion. We got to pet goats, little pigs, baby lynxs, bunnies, and many more. Also they had a little building you could walk into where the birds were flying and you can feed them bird sticks. That was cute! Also the train ride is enjoyable! But...The monkeys like to make eye contact...and kept putting their hands out to us. One started screaming at us, not sure why but it startled me. The lady said maybe the female could smell that some of us girls were on our "monthly time". That was the only strange part to me. Also some cages could be improved a lot.
