My family with small boys ( 2-8 in age) loved this stop. Lots to see I would for sure go again and lots of cool areas. Pushed a double stroller with twins and fit everywhere which was such a relief. Even had a gift shop area. We took a family photo in front of one of the fountains and I... More

Lots of alligators, friendly goats, but my favorite thing was feeding the emu. Nice little gift shop.

This zoo was exactly the way I remembered it when I was a kid. Really in need of several upgrades but the staff was very friendly.

My family (ages 35, 30, 5, and 2) visited. My kids liked being able to feed goats and look at the alligators and turtles. We were told we arrived after feeding time of the alligators. There were a few other animals there but nothing earth shattering.

Fun feeding goats, deer, and donkeys. Kids got a kick out of holding a baby alligator. Call first to see if they are doing gator feeding. It's only certain days and times.

Very disappointed at this farm and petting zoo! Only had three types of animals for pettting, the area was very smelly. Actually really nothing to see except small, medium and a few large gators. We did hold a small gator but not a big deal (there's even a tip jar on the counter--what the heck?) Two wolves, one mt. lion,... More

This is a fairly good attraction for the time of year. It wasn't very warm yet so the gators were still in hibernation mode. Feeding the animals was fun and holding the alligator was nice too because that's just not something you do everyday. I didn't feel the admission was too much as some other reviewers did. The staff are... More

I love gators so we had to stop, we both enjoyed it. It was really cool to get to hold the little gator and I wish we would've had more time to stay and watch them eat! It was fun to feed the deer, goats, and donkeys! Very cool place!
