pet zoo

located near our campground within walking distance. Grandkids enjoyed while I baked in the sun. Seems to be for the younger crowd. I probably will not go back

Great adventure for kids not familiar with farm animals. The kids,(and adults), can pickup chickens, pet animals, go into pens with them, and feed them. Guaranteed to occupy the little ones for hours. And there are plenty of places for parents to sit and watch.

He loved the goats, baby chicks, horses, and chickens the best. There are large grassy areas to sit and relax... More

We felt completely ripped off. Apparently the week before Labor Day is the off season because they didn't have pig races or anything else going on there like the other reviews we read. Other than feeding goats that was about it. The pony and train rides should have been included in the price with so little other activities going on... More

The guy came right over with a big bucket of feed and got them put right back where they belong, and he was so nice, said it happens all the time, didn't... More

$13 an adult and $10 a child plus $2.50 extra for a pony ride or cart ride plus .25 to feed animals. Our family of 4 quickly got over $60 for a petting zoo. We got there early and the kids loved it. They got to see the bottle feeding, pig races, hold baby chicks, saw many animals. Staff is... More
