The Ochsner Zoo is a free small city zoo. The zoo is well kept and the animals have spacious pens. They have signs near the animals explaining facts about them. The Prairie Dogs were really neat to watch.

This zoo is so cute and well maintained. The kids had alot of fun running around and feeding the animals. All the animals seemed well cared for.

It's your basic zoo. It's pretty cool as a child (there is a park that is connected to the back), but I wouldn't say there is anything too special about it. There is sometime an ice cream stand towards the front, but there is not a lot of life that happens here. It's a place you can spend about half... More

Ok! We admit it! We are locals and we love our little home town zoo. After all, how many towns the size of Baraboo have a zoo?! Our Grandson always enjoys seeing the animals especially the Prairie dogs. And a summertime visit would not be complete without visiting the volunteer run concession "hut" for ice cream and other goodies. There... More

Great little zoo. Free to get in but you don't have a lot of things to look at. Kills about 29 minutes. Probably great for the little ones.

We enjoyed this zoo so much we brought the rest of the family back the next day. This zoo is just big enough to enjoy for all ages! My dad can't do much walking &we we had a 4 year old - it was the perfect size for both.

This zoo is so great. If you're wanting to see hundreds of different species, you won't find them here. However, if you want a very pleasant experience in a lovely area, this zoo is great. We started going here when our son was very young and we still love going back. We go to the Dells and experience all the... More

I love this park. Even when it is busy, it is a peaceful place to visit. The free zoo is a special treat as well as the river walk. The playground and shelters are nothing fancy, but adequate.

It is pretty cool. Especially the Prairie Dogs. Don't get caught feeding them food you brought. Even though they live sunflower seeds. Then there is a trail to follow to a bridge and there is a park right next to the zoo. So a great day to spend with family.

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.
