It was really nice on the other side of Willow Lake, AZ, at the Zoo! We visited the animals and donated our pumpkin as we learned from other folks certain animals eat pumpkin. A fun day!

I want to share my recent experience with the photography tour provided by Wayne Fischer. He offered a generous lengthy tour behind the scenes of each of the animals with wonderful opportunities for photography. I highly recommend you take this opportunity to photograph each of the animals and learn their significant stories. After the tour I stopped in the office... More

There's always something going on for the kids to do here. We usually come every year for Boo at the Zoo. The kids get to trick or treat throughout the zoo and candy stations are positioned throughout the zoo. This year we participated in the haunted tour too! It's fun trip either day or night.

What a great place to stroll around to visit the animals in a relaxed, uncrowded setting. This zoo is really an animal sanctuary where injured or formerly privately owned wild beasts are cared for. Though the pathways can be a little uneven, with a little attention as you are waling through, this should not be an issue. Visitors can enjoy... More

Great little hidden sanctuary. Not big like your local zoo's, but this is more for animals that can't be returned to the wild. We went when Santa visited to bring presents for the animals and because of that there were zoo keepers that went along with to explain the stories behind some of the animals. The mountain lion who was... More

This was a total surprise as I did not know what to expect. I am not usually a fan of zoos. Too overwhelming. This 'rescue' zoo is very small-but well set out and what struck me is that the zoo keepers really have an attachment to the animals they care for. The staff were very knowledgeable and kind. My 4...

You cannot expect this to compare to the likes of the San Diego Zoo or Brookfield zoo. But what you will find is a great place to bring the kids and learn something while you're there. This is a small zoo in a small town. It is based more on animal rescue and education than an actual zoo. There are... More

Four stars instead of five because there is only one bathroom in the whole park. LOTS of great animals to see! Well taken care of too! Park for kids. no water fountains though and the machine cost $2 for a bottle water.

This is a small zoo and it has nothing on San Diego (for example), but we love it! You get such personal interactions with the animals. It is a wonderful place to go for a few hours to explore. Check Groupon - there are often deals!
