This spot is a must see for you & your children. I visited this place 20 years ago & then just last week and I have to say that it is the cleanest facility I have ever been in. All the animals are healthy, their pens or cages are spotless, the food they feed the monkeys was so fresh &... More

We had arranged for two groups from chicago that was working with us to visit in March. Suzie was great and took great care of us. They loved it and especially holding a baby alligator and the petting zoo. Thank you Suzie and staff.

This was a great thing to visit while in hot springs. It was 39 for a family of four which is high in my opinion. There were alot of aligators from small to large. The kids really enjoyed feeding the animals !

I read the reviews - it did only take like 20 mins to go through the whole park. Worth the price for the little petting zoo they have, being able to feed little alligators and holding one are well worth the visit. At noon they feed the big alligators, which is a must see. Something good to see for visiting... More

It was OK. We paid and the guy said "Go out the door and take a left, and Conner will take care of yall. So we did just that. But there was just a bunch of people in the petting zoo. We never got any bread to feed the animals. After we made our way around the exhibit we finally... More

We had fun at the little petting zoo, however admission was kind of steep but all 3 of my kids got to hold and feed a baby alligator. So that was worth it and we were there 12 on a Sunday so we were able to watch him feed the big gators. It's a bit run down but a still... More

Nothing spectacular in here, except the possibility of petting a baby alligator. During a very hot summer day, the surrounding smell is pretty bad and I have to agree with other reviewers: those poor animals in small cages didn't look very happy. Not too many things to see, except different generations of alligators. Nobody gave us bread to feed any... More

The place is a little run down. It was neat to hold an alligator, but the rest of it was not great. It was just a few other animals. They gave us one piece of bread to feed at the petting zoo. That's it.

It was worth the price of admission to have our pictures taking with the alligators. The petting zoo was fun even for my teenagers.
