    Variety of animals, we picked the wrong time of day to visit, most were down for a nap or feeding. Loved the natural walk thru the woods.  more »

    It was really nice. Our little ones loved looking at all the animals. The only thing I would suggest is either putting water fountains out x amount feet apart or making it clear that people can bring drinks. It was really hot when we went and were under the impression we couldn't bring outside drinks. And make sure you have bug spray. Really nice inexpensive getaway overall with an awesome staff.

    Great place for an awesome hike with lots of stops for wildlife! Definitely a place kids will enjoy, but I'd recommend bringing a backpack with extra water, because it gets hot out on the trails. Ask when they feed the wolves and get to the (air conditioned) viewing area ahead of time for some great, up-close views.

    Great spot to spend a few hours. TAKE BUG SPRAY ... We did not and everyone got bit up. The animals all seem well cared for and the staff was professional and seemed to enjoy what they do. We were disappointed that the cougar wasn't out, but the wolves and gators made up for it. 8 of us went and I believe it was only 25.00 for 2 adults and 6 kids. Worth the trip and a great price but please TAKE BUG SPRAY.

    We had a great time here! Wear comfortable shoes, as you will be walking on trails. Informative, and has a nice variety of wildlife. Animals seemed to have adequate living space.

    Love taking my kids here. Such a great variety of animals they would not see in town. Wish there was more covering for when it does rain.
