Look for the price of $10 for adults and $5 for children it's an inexpensive activity for the kids. I have two children, ages 4 and 2. The kids loved seeing the animals and being... read more

We have visited a lot of petting zoos and even the National Zoo in DC, so in comparison this one was really dirty and run-down. The animals probably don't know the difference but I did think that the Lions and Tigers were in small cages. The Mountain Lion seemed to be agitated but I think that was due to the... More

We think this place is great. They actually take in and care for animals that no one else want. They are a family owned business that try their best to keep up with everything to make sure the animals are well taken care of.

There are three paths to visit all sorts of animals. We saw an alligator swimming in a pond. The animals were much closer to us than at a city zoo, which was nice for taking pictures, but uncomfortable since they were held in by enclosed fencing. The gift shop was ok...nothing spectacular, but had some little token of gifts to... More

It didn't look like a real zoo to me. It might be because originally, i'm from the upstate New York. Bit if you have nothing else to do,and you have bunch of kids(just the same,as i do have)) it is ok place to visit

Look for the price of $10 for adults and $5 for children it's an inexpensive activity for the kids. I have two children, ages 4 and 2. The kids loved seeing the animals and being able to feed them. Obviously they have signs on the cages that the kids shouldn't feed, however adults should use their own common sense. There... More

We go here every year. The kids and adults always have a great time looking at and feeding the animals. There are plenty of resting areas for you to take a break. Can't say enough about this zoo. The only problem we had was getting there due to construction on the road. If you are going, plan ahead for detours.

Thank chersherr
