It was a lot bigger than I expected. Done up nice for Christmas. Not much in the way of food, best to pack your own lunch. Plenty of animals to see and some to feed and pet.

From the time you drive up into the potted gravel parking lot, and pay the extra high entrance fee to the one person working the whole entrance area, you will start wondering. There is a old wore out train for the kids, and some of the animals look like they are in distress. Zoo definitely needs some attention, expansion, and... More

monkeys, zebra, parrots, typical collection but still fun to see. petting zoo for kids. 5-minute train ride around the park. good way to entertain the children and see some animals for 2 hours. zoo is clean, nice mixture of open and cage exhibits, human and animal food available.

I'm not sure if I arrived at feeding time, but the animals were really engaged and seemed interested in visitors. It was a nice visit.

What a treat to stroll through the park with all the lights, worth the trip and be sure to take the train ride as this can be a great way to see some of the animals not in a small in-closer Give yourself plenty of time and enjoy

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
