I was skeptical about visiting this zoo due to reading reviews on tripadvisor. We ended up going because of my love for animals and we truly enjoyed it. I think some of the living condition for some of the animals could be better and improved. The animals seemed ok and we enjoyed seeing them. I think improvement can be made.... More

This is a small town zoo - but it's a lot of town if your an animal lover - you can get up close & personal than you typically can at larger zoos. we had a fun relaxing few hours here.

This is a privately owned zoo so it is not fancy or perfect looking. I enjoyed the difference. It is a good value for families and a good way to spend a morning or afternoon when you just want to away from the beach. Buy the food to feed the animals as you walk around.The kids, my husband, and myself... More

we took our grandkids today. They are 4 and 3. This was a great day. The zoo is not like Philly or San Diego but is just fine for kids 2 to 7. They love the Tigers,lions and bears. Just a real friendly place for small kids. Buy the food to feed the animals before you enter. They have a... More

This is one of the best zoos I've ever visited. The animals are clearly very well fed. It was nice to see the animals in a nature environment not concrete enclosures. There were people out caring for the grounds and feeding the animals when we were there. Some of the monkeys were in sheds but it was quite chilly. Overall,... More

This sweet zoo is where I would want to live if I were an animal! You can tell that these animals are well loved and cared for. This Zoo is a very fun activity for all ages and perfect for when you are a little tired of the sun & sand and want to do something different. I will definitely... More

Quite an assortment of animals here and a good two hour plus walk to see it all..Possible to buy food packages that really allow you to see and experience the animals up close. We found the cages and animals well fed and clean. The animals were happy to see people and did not seem stressed out by the enclosures or... More

when we first entered the zoo we were the only guests here. I now know why. The animal cages are dirty, no access to clean water for drinking. The trails are full of garbage and cigarette butts. I was really disappointed with our experience. They have a lot of unused property and should in my opinion make more room for... More
