  • 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.
  • A great place for families. They have all different types of animals here and beautiful walking trails. It's a little more than a mile to walk through the whole place with areas to sit and rest if you need to. It wasn't expensive at all and you can take as long as u like to walk through and look at everything. You walk at your own pace.
  • This is a great place to go with the family. For $5 you see cougars,bobcats and more. Very impressed. Will be visiting more often.
  • Really enjoyed this small wildlife center! Walked about 1 1/2 miles and saw all sorts of native wildlife. The nesting egrets were awesome!
  • Amazing experience! Loved every minute of it! Was a blast for my 5 year old and me. Animals very active!
