Fun times! Even for the size of the zoo it honestly was a great little trip! The animal areas were more than adequate and the animals seemed happy. Some zoos you go to you feel bad for the animals this was not one of them :)

I am currently sitting here at your establishment, and I have to say how disappointed my family and I are! For the price you pay to get in, I expect to see what this establishment had to offer. Not much I can assure you! The thousand of banana spiders were more entertaining than the lack of animals and poor quality... More

We drove 2 hours with two toddlers to take them to the zoo. They are now screaming in the car because when we got here they said they decided to close because nobody was coming in. No wonder if you close because guests take too long to drive there! Would I recommend this zoo? Definitely not!! Would I come back... More

This review is honest and from my VERY RECENT experience on this past Saturday July 5, 2014. My family which consisted of 3 adults and 1 child visited this poorly maintained zoo. It wasn't actually a zoo more like a farm. The only time the zookeepers and/or employees spoke to you is when they were asking for money. There were... More

This is a small-town zoo, good for your child's first zoo visit. Plan to go when the weather is nice. The price is pretty steep for a zoo. I think it was $11 or $12 per person? $7.50 for kids. They have giraffes, llamas, a few farm animals in a petting zoo, birds, a pygmy hippo, reptiles, lemurs, a black... More

Very few animals, very small, grass over grown. The cost is $11, they should increase the ticket price and up grade the zoo. Very disappointing.

$30 for 2 adults and a child for the sorriest exhibit of a zoo I have EVER experienced! All the animals were far from exotic! A bunch of birds and small monkeys. 1 white tiger that looked like it weighed 90lbs. A sorry excuse for a aquarium, the place looked like it hadn't been cleaned, the structure was falling apart...

A great place to enjoy a leisurely stroll, in the shade, or not, with the grandkids... many things to do and see for all ages. Our grandkids love the train ride and the huge play area... of course we always need to stop and refresh ourselves with a hot dog, chips and a drink. No matter the age our grand... More
