Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary

Almost like a small zoo. Very well run. Very family friendly and educational. Wear good walking shoes.

Great attraction. Free admission, tour the grounds in a couple of hours and nicely kept. Not an abundance of animals but enough to keep anyone's attention for a the time there. Longest trail about 1 1/4 mile and the shortest just over a 1/4 mile. Nice nature centers. Great for all ages.

We were too early for the Bay Beach Amusement park, so we started our day at the Wildlife Sanctuary. No charge, and our kids, 7 and 9, had a great time learning about the animals and why they were at the sanctuary.

This place rescues injured wildlife, and those that can't be released have a home on the grounds. They allow people to feed the geese and ducks who can't fly anymore, and the rest of the place is like a zoo, with owls, hawks, etc. having their own enclosures.

When I asked friends for suggestions on places that would interest both young and old between SW Wisconsin and Door County, several mentioned Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary. We had never heard of it before. We enjoyed the afternoon there and realized we didn't begin to see all of it so actually went back again for another half day in the... More

Definitely get your walking shoes on, so many things to see and do. You can buy bags of corn to feed the geese and ducks. My favorite that I seen were the Bald Eagles and wolves.

Great place to take the kids plus it is free, unless you get corn to feed the geese and ducks. $1 a bag can't beat that. Lots of animals to see. Tower to climb and play areas. Great place to take pics.
