  • We had so much fun at the zoo. Be careful the hours posted on their website are not correct. Well worth it!!  more »
  • Our second visit. This time we brought friends. Very inexpensive. Our friend has some trouble walking so this place is ideal. Small enough to see the whole place easily and no steep hills. There are s...  more »
  • Visited this place to see the alligator snapping turtle. From the outside it looks a little run down but do not let that put you off. It is after all a rescue zoo and you have to keep this in mind whe...  more »

  • Loved the different animals. I actually got the chance to hold a Python. They have a small petting zoo where you can feed goats. Its a small setting but the zookeepers are very sweet to the animals and public. Also they are very knowledgeable. I would love to be able to go back in the future and would recommend this to any one who is an animal lover.
  • It's a small zoo but with amazing experience at very affordable price. Mark is having very in depth knowledge about wild life spices. I got the discovery tour with Mark and it was really awesome and was a good knowledge sharing tour......it will be great for young kids
  • This zoo is honestly one of the best zoos I have ever been to. One of the reptile handlers gave me a full body viper shed. I literally cried because when I was on a treck in Africa I tried my hardest to find a viper shed. Super sweet people. Have the best set of goats I have ever come across. Definitely will be going back!
  • The facility could use an upgrade but my family always enjoys an afternoon stroll on the grounds. The owner is friendly and so is his staff. It's definitely a day trip destination! Can't miss the giant dinosaur out front!
  • I love this place, and visit it every time that I am in the area! It is a small rescue zoo for exotic animals. Many of the animals have signs with their personal story. They all seem well cared for, happy, and healthy. There is an area in the back with goats and such that you can feed and pet.

Where to stay in Luray

Aptly nicknamed the "Cabin Capital of Virginia," Luray and the surrounding area feature hundreds of mountain cabins, providing spacious suites with panoramic views of the scenic Shenandoah river valley. Though they can be pricey, these cabins are extremely popular with visitors from nearby Baltimore and Washington, D.C., so take time to shop for deals and make your reservations a few months before your trip. For something less expensive, consider one of Luray's small inns or motels.
