Check-in is a little overwhelming. The cashiers have to juggle between, reservations and daily customers walking in. Please make sure upon checking in, that you understand what you are being charged for, and make sure you understand the rules. They speak really fast. We were accidently over charged by $70. They did correct it the next day, when we brought... More

If you are looking for a great place to take your children and get hands on experience with exotic animals, this is the place. While you ride in the back of the tractor; llamas, camels, deer, goats, buffaloes, sheep, and zebras come up to you and you get to feed them. They also have a fun petting zoo with deer... More

At the time of our visit our children had just turned two and four. I found this place online after doing some research for a weekend getaway, (we live in Bastrop, TX). We stayed the night here, they were very friendly and accommodating. We showed up just after hours so they left us all of the info for check-in at... More

We come out to the exotic zoo resort every new years eve. We try to rent all the cabins out. Great place to have fun and not worry about driving. Bon Fire at night is awesome. Kids have fun durig the day and adults have fun at night around the camp fire. It's been a tradition of ours for 4... More

I reviewed this place a few years ago and probably would not have written a new review, except that I see a previous reviewer gave it only 1-star and said some things that are simply not very accurate. We also just stayed in Cabin 2, as we have in the past. The cabin is fairly basic, but fine. The sheets... More

We recently stayed -- for one night -- in Cabin 2. It was bad. The sheets and towels were threadbare. Both the beds smelled bad as did the recliner. The shower leaked water all over the bathroom floor, and the door to the bathroom offered no privacy whatsoever. The overhead light fixture had three bulbs in it. One worked all... More

We just got back from a two night stay and our experience was second to none! I will say though that if you are planning on petting animals by day and laying in the lap of luxury by night, you will be disappointed (and overlooking the whole point of this amazing place!). I will start with the tour, which we... More

We just returned from a family weekend at the Exotic Resort Zoo. We had the best time even though the weather didn't cooperate. The cabins are rustic but clean. The staff are super upbeat people and eager to attend to any request. We were super close to animals and a petting area. Catch and release fishing is steps away. And... More

The zoo is a neat place to visit -- we've been here three times. Feeding the animals is always fun - especially for children (or those young in heart). This time we stayed in a cabin, which is within the zoo property yet in view of the visitors area. The cabin was clean and was as described on the web... More

We have been to many safari type places. We enjoyed staying in the cabins. We loved waking up to all of the animals. There is a small petting zoo directly in the middle of the camp grounds. We plan on going back and spending more time as a family there.
