  • This petting zoo is a wonderful place for children; my kids and I go every summer. My daughter loves holding the baby chicks, kittens and bunnies. My kids were too scared to hold the baby lemur so I did instead, and it climbed on top of my head. They loved it! There is also a nice, clean play area. Very fun for a day trip.
  • Place was ok. Cost $18 for two people, my daughter is 5 so I had to pay $9 for her also. They do not take credit cards... Cash/check only. You can hold/pet small animals, such as chickens, baby ducks,kitten, baby goats and few other small animals. They have a big black bear and a wolf there, which is pretty cool. The hay ride is not all that, just takes you in the back of the woods looking at trees and that's pretty all. Overall I'll give it 3 stars, I have been to better independent zoo's before
  • My family and I really enjoyed our time here. The variety of animals was surprising and from all over the earth. It is awesome how close you can get to the animals. Much more interactive and close than the Milwaukee Zoo. I can't believe a baby Lemur was climbing all over me as I was petting a kangaroo. It was great!
  • Best one around. They have exotic animals as well as your everyday animals. They even have a hay ride. My daughter wants to come every week. Not only do they have the best animals they are the cheapest.
  • Toddler loved the letting area. There was a kangaroo, deer, and a baby lemur in an open area you could just approach and pet. The rest of the zoo were misc animals in small cages, but things you'd see better at the Milwaukee County Zoo. Worth it for the petting area though.
