  • A wonderful small zoo!! Down a mountainside with animals from far and wide. The animals are close up and well kept. You will need to be able to walk up and down a slope on sidewalks. My only suggestio...  more »
  • I'm ambivalent about zoos, but this small, clean, well-kept zoo has a friendly staff and what seems to be sufficient space for the animals they keep. Great for small children, easy to navigate and wal...  more »
  • I think this zoo's size is an advantage, its easy to get to and easy to come see what you want without using the entire day. We have a membership and bring our daughter on nice days. The bird show is ...  more »

  • Cougar Mountain Zoo is always a great zoo to visit. But, now they offer feeding the Tigers...for a nominal fee. What an awesome idea they came up with feeding the Tigers!! I loved it!! You'll experience the Tigers up close and personal....but in a safe environment. You feed them through an opening located in the Tiger Tunnel...since there are 2 tigers the experience is best with 2 people...I believe anyway. And, the staff is very knowledgeable and open to answering any questions regarding the zoo animals you may have...love it!!
  • Nice small zoo. The staff is nice and the shows are good. See the feeding of the cougars; food is hidden around the enclosure and they have to search for it. The birds are interesting and the wolves have been active when I've been there. Good photo opportunities. They sometimes take one of the reindeer out for a walk around. Small gift shop.
  • The cougars were very sociable and were "talking" to us. Got to see a lot of interesting animals close up and personal. The tigers were beautiful. Was a great way to spend time with my daughter before school starts.
  • Nice small, but beautiful zoo with a fabulous view. The kids in our group enjoyed feeding the animals. It is small enough that the kids could break off in groups and return to their favorite animals and the adults felt it was safe for the kids to venture out on their own.
  • It is a small but very home feeling zoo. A huge selection of parrots and white tigers are my favorite. Went there already twice with my 2.5 yo girl, she loves it. Definitely recommended. Take your kids, relatives, friends or just by yourself. You don't need much time so you will not get super tired but will discover wild life feeling!
