  • We stopped to check out the zoo. I'm glad we did, it was a lot of fun. I like that there were chickens and peacocks flying around freely. We could also feed the animal by purchasing seeds and apples. ...  more »

  • Although it's not a big zoo, it has a good variety of critters! Our 5 year old loved the free roaming birds and got a kick out of them eating out of the palm of his hand. The Lions were really active ...  more »
  • This is a great place to go to when you are in the U.P. , we went on Mother's Day (Moms get in for free) and it was great. We were expecting for it to be a very small place and have only a few animals, but we were wrong! We purchased a bag of icecream cones with seeds in the gift shop to feed to the deer, alpacas and goats. They have tons of peacocks running around, even one in the parking lot! If you visit here you will have a great time!
  • This is a fantastic small zoo. There are many different animal exhibits; ranging from small to large animals. It is very kid friendly and not too expensive. A definite plus for our family of seven. Being in the forested Upper Pennisula, the trails are shaded and are mulched. That being said, bring bug spray...the mosquitoes are out in full force. There are free range birds that wander the zoo and are very friendly. The zoo allows guests to feed the alpacas, deer, goats, and bears when guests purchase feed/apples. Feeding the animals was a highlight! The gift shop is full of reasonably priced educational​ toys and zoo memorobilia. It has only been a day since our last visit and our kids are already planning the next Garlyn Zoo visit!
  • It was a bit small for a zoo. Priced moderate. The kids liked it. You can feed the animals.
  • My parents and son loved this zoo. It was just the right size. It's also a petting zoo.
  • A wide variety of zoological creatures in a quaint and serene setting; free roaming birds are a treat for the kids. Many opportunities to feed the critters.
