My, husband and I visited this zoo on vacation and had a blast!! Variety of animals! The price was very reasonable! This place could use a good cleaning, and straighten up, but that did not stop us from enjoying our time here!! We really enjoyed how close the animals we're to us!!

Nice variety of animals. Even though it is a natural habitat it is in need of a good cleaning and repair around the grounds and buildings. Would be nice to have signing up and legible. Was pleasant boardwalk to the intercoastal waterway. The natural habitat for the local birds was very interesting with lots of pretty white Egrets.

It's a very small zoological farm. Most of the animals are kept in pins with wire fencing and there are a lot of farm animals. It does say at the front gate enter at your own risk they can not get liability insurance. Feed is offered right away which is an unique experience, yes there are warning signs saying animals...

Very nice zoo, clean, and a variety of animals. However it is not a huge zoo but a nice outing with your family.

This place is pretty awful. They hit you up for animal feed at the door and there is a sign saying "enter at your own risk because we cannot get liability insurance." The animals are hard to see through the multiple chain links and every single cage says "feed at your own risk may bite" Or feed with care, may... More

It only costs $10. To walk around the entire zoo takes about 1 1/2-2 hours. They had a large variety of animals & reptiles. Including Lions, Tigers & bears. The only thing is disliked is that some of the animals living spaces were way too small. Especially for the bears.

Took the kids and found that some of the larger animals were in small pens instead of being allowed larger roaming areas like the deer and buffalo had. Animals look like they are in need of some talc and it was a little pricey for what is offered

My husband and I took our two daughters, 2 years and 7 weeks, to the zoo last week. We have been to much nicer zoos in the past but this place was decent for what you paid. They have bags of feed or peanuts for sale for $6. I'm not really sure why they offer the peanuts because not many... More
