my 3 kids loved this! Even though it was cold out, we were so involved in the animals, we hardly felt the chill. Lots of interaction with feeding the animals, and staff were very nice. Lots of walking, and we got turned around once, but they do provide a map.

Surprised at the size of the zoo and variety of the animals here. Went with a 3&2 year old. They were able to walk the whole zoo and see all of the animals. Think with the number of trees it might also be good all year long. Staff was friendly.

I loved this zoo. It wasn't crowded at all and my boyfriend and I loved the up close experience. It was a memory that I will never forget. I did however feel sorry for the animals there (the conditions of their habitat). Their cages were incredibly small and it didn't seem like they had a lot of room to move... More

This is by far the worst zoo I have ever been too. The animals are kept in horrid conditions. The cages are too small and the zoo is extremely dirty. I have a great concern for the health of the animals and doubt they are feed a proper diet. The chimpanzee was given a coke and treated as prop.

We were very impressed with this place!!! Took our three teens whom I just knew would probably find it "boring" but NO we all LOVED it!! Really liked how close you can get to the animals and being able to feed them! The cost is beyond reasonable and I would certainly recommend it to all ages...young and old!

You must go! Animals eating out of your hand and a close up experience. A unique environment and a great deal, as well.

I take my kids here a few times a year. Price is very affordable, you get to feed many of the animals ( and there is a large variety of them ), since it is shaded by trees you can go during the dead of summer and get some sun relief. Nature hike is beautiful as well. Bear in mind... More

This place is a great place to take kids or just get away from it all. It is no concrete jungle. It is a large quite uncrowded place to enjoy a unique bunch of animals. You can feed most all of the animals except the monkeys, bears, lions and other large cats. Great for kids.

First off...my husband hates this zoo! It smells worse than any zoo we have ever been to. The big animals are in small cages which breaks my heart. If you have been to bigger zoos like The Columia zoo or the Atlanta zoo...this zoo will leave you very disappointed! It is more of a "mom and pop" zoo. There is... More
