  • Super friendly. Feeding the animals is so much fun! Great family atmosphere.
  • This was one of the best zoos I’ve ever been to. Staff was great and animals were beautiful. Just happened across the zoo on a little tour of West Virginia. J
  • I took my 10 year old granddaughter there, fantastic place to go to. She loved being able to feed the different animals and being up close to them. There was a little baby monkey that she was fascinated with and going into the bird exhibit and having the parakeets land on her hands and eating food off a stick was a thrill. An excellent visit!
  • Love this zoo! Have been going to this zoo since I was a child!!! Handicap accessible! You can feed the animals even. Not that much to get in! Fun activities for the kids and adults to do.
