  • It's not a big, paved place - it has a more natural feel. Gravel paths, and just a couple levels of fencing separating you from the animals. Great variety, too - Lions, tigers, panthers, a variety of simians, wolves, and and a variety of wild dogs which weren't clearly marked. Bears, too! The biggest fault I can find was the empty cages, of which there were quite a few. I assume they were housing the warm-climate animals, as the nights were still chilly when I was there. Also disappointed to not see the hippo at its listed feeding time. There was an 'animal birthday' event going on when we stopped by, which was pretty fun - they gave the monkeys pinatas full of toys and treats, and had cups of feed available (free of charge) for the pen of goats, yaks, horses, sheep, and one angry-looking emu. It was a great time!
  • Love love love this zoo! We made a special trip just to this zoo (2 hour drive) and It was so worth it! This zoo is very organized and always on time with their shows. I got to hold so many different animals. Also got to watch them feed the tigers and it was amazing. We also got to talk to the owners and they are such loving people. If you haven't been to this zoo you need to check it out!
  • We live about 90 from this zoo and visit at least once a year. It is family-owned and noticeably low-budget. The parking lot is sand or gravel. Almost all of the walkways are sand or gravel. But we love this zoo because of its interactive nature. Visitors are often allowed to hold reptiles and other small animals. Visitors are also invited to participate in feeding some animals (like goats and calves) and to watch feeding other animals (like lions and tigers). We heard about this place because of the reality TV show dedicated to it. The owner is very kind and seems to love children and guests as much as he loves animals.
  • This zoo is very well put together with animals in there natural habitat. The owners are very friendly and very happy to answer any question you have. You can tell they are very compassionate in what they do!
  • Great back woods zoo for the family. All the animals you expect to find at a zoo in a quiet location. Decent price.
