While it's a small spot, the owners are very friendly and show a genuine concern for their animal - it's great to see. For those who remember the Catskill Game Farm, this is a pleasant reminder - like a "Game Farm Museum". It makes for a very pleasant stop - even without kids in tow, but great for families especially.

I was amazed at how many animals we got to see here! I went with my niece and nephew, 3 & 6 years old. They were so excited about each and every animal and for how small it is, they pack a lot in. It seemed a little rundown but I didn't feel like they were being abused as some... More

My boyfriend and i fed all the animals we could and spent time admiring others like a tiger, bears and monkeys! Such a gem in the... More

I almost wasn't going to go there because of some of the negative reviews. It's a great little place to visit especially for small kids. Lots of animals. I saw bears, a tiger, sheep, goats, a monkey, baboons, large and small pigs, horses big and tiny, parakeets and parrots, and a few other animals and birds. It's a petting zoo.... More

every link I used sent me to his web site which shows $55 per hour trail rides- my 2 daughters and I drive 90 minutes to an empty parking lot and an owner telling us that it would be $130 for 2 kids- my fault for thinking $110 because I had looked at HIS OLD website which states $55 per-... More

The animals are friendly and the staff is caring and willing to answer any questions. We all enjoyed feeding the animals and being able to get so close to them. My husband was able to feed a...

I was appalled as I walked through this zoo that each step you take there was horse manure the stench was just the beginning walking through this zoo seeing the animals so neglected full of bugs and malnourished I wondered is this all a money making scheme? Torture animals and how is this allowed? I have been to a few... More
