It's a good price. But it's very small and we walked around and saw all the animals in less than 1 hr. I can't say that I will go back however.

We were passing through town with my 1 1/2 yr old grandson and heard this was a nice place to visit. I was disappointed in the animal selections. We went on a cool day when the animals are more active. Very few exhibits were open and had animals out. We got to see the lions and tigers which were cool... More

This is a bigZoo and you can' t see everything in a couple of hours. We were surprised that it was so large and we didn't have more time to spend seeing everything.

Not much to see here. Lions and tigers and bears are OK, but they won't be walking around in the heat of summer. Other specimens are horses and deer which you can see from any road in Texas.

Nice zoo. Great price. Lions and tigers are worth the visit. It will take about an hour to cover the entire zoo. Would go again.

This was a small zoo. It did not take very much time to go through this zoo. They had the usually animals such as lions, tigers, monkeys. They had a wonderful building that housed snakes and reptiles. The only bad thing was they had some buffalo, but were on the other side of the land for them. It was very... More

Well... it was something to do and it didn't cost very much. For two adults, one child over 5 and two babies, it cost $10 to get in. This is a small zoo that takes about an hour to get through. The sign in the front when entering was not only funny but accurate. "Children, please control your parents". It's... More

This is a great little zoo. So well kept, all the animals look happy and well cared for. It only costs $4 admission so it's well worth the money.

We love to go to zoos and this was our 3rd in 5 weeks of travel. This was the smallest of the three and very clean and well kept. Keepers were friendly and the information about the animals was very informative. We spent a few hours and ended up walking around the circular design twice. Great for kids.
