  • Big disappointment. Run down and boring. Small selection of animals. Many not viewable because of their enclosures. Would not recommend.

  • This “zoo” is heartbreaking. The animal enclosures are so small. The animals looked sad. I don’t recommend this zoo and feel they should really consider rehoming the animals to a wildlife...

  • 1st family trip in September 2022. This is a nice 11-acre North American wildlife refuge zoo. My family of 3 spent 2 hours in the zoo. It was leading up to closing time. We could have easily spent 2 1/2-3 hours to thoroughly see and appreciate all. So glad we got to visit Zoo America.
  • THE BEST ZOO I HAVE EVER BEEN TO SO FAR!!! They rescue all of the animals in the exhibits which is awesome. All of the animals are native to the north east regions so America and Canada. It was great really intimate experience because your literally up close to all the animals. Closest I’ve ever been to a lot of the types of animals I saw. I didn’t pay extra for the zoo because I got tickets for Hershey park for 49$ so that was cool. I would definitely recommend everyone to go. Once you know the animals are rescues it completely changes your perspective on place. It was heartfelt. Please do yourself the favor and visit this place at least once!!!!
  • A lovely small zoo with a "suggested path" which takes you around zoo, so you don't miss an exhibit. Staff were super kind and the zoo was clean & well laid out. I'd plan an hour to see everything. Tip... AZA membership can make this a free trip to the zoo (some memberships are only 50% off)
  • Loved it. The animals are beautiful, just felt sad for some of them. I got to see some birds but most of them were not being shown to public, for their safety (bird flu going around) but it's a very beautiful area and definitely worth a stop. The wolf, ocelot, and mountain lion were my faves.
  • Great tiny zoo! Very quaint and provides a nice selection of different animals. The owls were our favorites. My daughter enjoyed it but hoped there was more food options. Told her more would be open in Spring!
