This was a nice Zoo/animal park, but it is pretty expensive for what you get. The animals seem to have a fair bit of space/good habitat and seemed healthy....except some of the chickens at the petting zoo that seemed stressed. The food was pretty so-so, so I would try and eat before or after.

We drove a very long way from La Baie to visit the Zoo Sauvage de Saint-Felicien and it was totally worthwhile. We thought the entrance ticket was a little expensive but then realised that it included a one hour trip on a train through the secure fields where we saw black bears with their cubs, moose (which we had never...

It was a great zoo. It's very natural and the setting itself is worth a visit. The animals all look to be in good condition and have sufficient habitat. The only animal exhibiting some obsessive behavior was a Polar Bear. The train is the highlight of the zoo. You see lots of interesting animals (like black bears, elk, Grizzlies, and... More

We appreciate all comments and we read them all. We’re happy that you enjoyed your visit at our “out of the ordinary” Zoo. We work very hard to offer large and natural exhibits to our animals. We have a few comments that could interest you. The Polar bears exhibit sometimes a bit of stereotypic behaviours. It’s a species that is... More

I keep on bringing guests to the zoo, wether in the summer and in the winter, and their reaction is always the same! They love it! To be able to see the animals in their natural habitat is a real treat.

The zoo was a great way to spend 4 hours and well worth the price of admission. When you arrive find out the feeding schedule and just follow the map based on that schedule. You will see all of the animals up close while eating. Also do not miss the tram ride which takes about an hour but allows you... More

We spent a whole day in this park. We have never seen something like this. It is awesome! The animals have so much room. And walking through the park it feels like being in a park but not in a Zoo! You have to go there if you have the possibility. There is a train which drives you through forest... More

Amazing day! Outdoor safari-like adventure on train (we are the ones caged in). One train in the morning is bilingual (English and French). Exhibits are well done and offer written info in English and French. Wonderful children's area with roaming goats. Bring picnic lunch. Allow 5 hours to take it all in.

This was one of our most awesome trips!!! And is apparently undiscovered by others in the US. We took advantage of the zoo's offering to allow you to camp -- really glamping -- with a herd of caribou. It was wonderful!

Thank you for taking the time to write a comment on us. We read them all. You're right, we're not well known in the US. We have a zoo very different from other zoos and the activity Adventure in the land of the caribou, is a good example of that. Come back when you can! More
