We didn’t have the highest expectations going in to this visit, but wow we quickly realized this is a hidden gem in big bear! It’s very rare to see a bald eagle and grizzly bears in a zoo! The zoo is definitely a bit outdated and some of the enclosures are hard to see through. We drove by the new location and it looks like it will be much better for the animals and visitors alike!

Worst zoo I have ever been to. There were very few animals and the cages were small. Grounds were not kept up. Very disappointing for $12 per person ticket.

Went to the zoo in early August. We were there about 3 o’clock in the afternoon a lot of the animals were snoozing. But we did get to see a snowy white owl, a bald eagle m, tigers and bear, coyotes, raccoons . It was a lot of fun and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s a great place to take the kids but we were just two adults and it was fun for us to. The new zoo will open soon and it’s going to be a lot easier to navigate and see the animals. Highly recommend the experience!

Very small cages for larger animals in some cases. The zoo was busy so it was impossible to keep your distance - not helped by some walkways being two-way and very narrow. A bit of work and they could make things a lot safer by ensuring pathways are not dead-ends and make them one-way only. They should probably limit capacity too.

There is free street parking in the vicinity of this small, hilly zoo. The adult admission price is $12, but there are discounts available for ages 3-10 and 60+ ($9 admission). There is a small "gift shop" at the cashier's station. The zoo itself has a grizzly and a black bear, eagles (golden and bald), deer, goose,duck, crane, and a lynx. There is a snow leopard habitat, but, alas, the snow leopard was a no-shown on the rather warm day I visited. If you are going to Big Bear anyway, it is worth visiting if you want to spend a couple of hours.
