We have been going to this zoo for about 40 years so I am sentimental but you should go. It is home to few animals so you probably won't spend more than an hour or so. The prairie dogs were the most fun.

This is a little zoo that has about a dozen species. Most of the animals are rescues or are retired from other zoos. Takes about 45 minutes to go through.

They have a variety of animals that are very well cared for. There are informational plaques at each display and the staff are full of more information. Nina the llama took an interest in my husband which we found hysterical. There is a beautiful park right next door - a great family place to picnic and spend the day.

One hour from home, just taking a road trip, heard about the free zoo, a dozen exhibits, 45 min to see everything, nice shaded little exhibits, saw everything except timber wolves, parked 35' from the entrance without knowing where to park - that was luck. Few other people looking and it wasn't crowded. No steps to negotiate, just the curb,... More

This is a very small zoo. I think there were less than 15 species of animals. A bear, llama, some dear, a few monkeys, a wolf, a potbellied pig, couple of goats, some geese. I may have forgotten a few but that is about it. 15 minutes should be enough to cover this attraction.

This is a very small zoo but it is free and the kids still love it. The Prairie dogs are their favorite. It is the perfect place to visit when we have some time to kill and want to be outside.

Ochsner Zoo is a very small zoo, but there is no admission fee. A nice place to spend a few hours if you are in the Baraboo area.

My mother used to bring us here when we were little kids, some of the stuff used to scare the crap out of me! That's great for a kid. FREE!
