it very reasonably priced I enjoyed walking through and seeing the animals and feeding the ones we could, I've done this twice now I like that they keep adding more exhibits to see.

Wilderness Trail Zoo was a nice experience for my small family. The enclosures were kept very clean and and animals were all very active. The petting zoo was a lot of fun for the young ones. We spent a nice three hours exploring and ended with a much needed picnic lunch in the covered picnic area. The gift shop had... More

We used a Groupon, so it was a good value. Some enclosures seemed a bit small but animals were active and viewing was better then some bigger zoos. We went at feeding time and it was very interesting seeing the wolves, leopard, and lions happily eating. Good for an hour or two visit.

For $20 for both of it it was a good experience. We had read some bad reviews but we didn't see any of the things that were said. The animals were more active than I'd seen at Big zoos. The trails were about a mile long and easy to follow. There was food stations to buy food to feed some... More

The family went on a fairly busy day but found a few empty parking spots. We used Groupon and the 4 of us got in for a very fair price with no hassles. There were far more animals than expected including some surprises like male lions, a few tigers, leopards including a fat black panther, lots of birds, lots of... More

This was our first time there & my Granddaughters loved it! Nice variety of animals...perfect for little ones to walk the whole zoo even though they had a wonderful wagon we rented. We went early in the morning when they opened...then ended with the girls playing on the playground there & then to the gift shop. It was not crowded... More

I love taking our grandchildren to the Zoo. We have bought a season past the last 3 years. Nice shady picnic/play area, walking paths to see the animals. Benches are throughout the zoo to rest.

I though this zoo was very nice I liked the layout wasn't all the back tracking like in some of the bigger zoos we've been to the animals looked comfortable seen them feed the monkeys. the parking lot is very small maybe fifty cars so wasn't expecting much but much better than we thought it was going to be. only...

At first I wasn't sure about it. I had ask the lady at the front desk of our hotel if she had ever been there and was it worth the money, and she said yes. So we decided to check it out. We enjoyed ourselves. It was nice because you were able to be a little closer to the animals... More
