Went with my son and my grandson. Had quite a few animals but conditions were not good. My grandson who is 2 liked seeing the animals. In the brochure it does not say anything about the giraffe passing away. They should fix up their walk ways and weed whack some of the weeds. It smelled bad in the park, I... More

The place smelled, and bad. They had a decent variation of animals, but their living quarters were too tight, and i felt bad at least half only had one animal in it. They looked sad. We drove over an hour to get here because of the cards left in lobbies, but not worth it. And they're over priced. I asked... More

My husband and I love checking out "zoo" attractions like this. We had a great time. The animals seemed very well cared for and loved. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

Very good variety of animals. Children enjoyed, but adults saddened to see large animals in such small enclosures.

I went with my family to this zoo. Most structures holding the animals are made of dilapidated 2x4s and something similar to chicken wire. All of the animals were either sleeping, panting, growling or pacing. All looked lethargic. Hand wash stations throughout the park did not work. The snack shack was closed and looked run down. I observed several very... More

Nice small zoo in the shade of the woods. Although it was a bright sunny warm day, it was nice under the shade of the trees. The terrain is not meant for people who are walking impaired. A wide variety of animals and the enclosures have glass viewing windows, so if the animal is up walking around you have a... More

Where to begin? First off, this place is way over priced. $18.95 per person and not even a "hello" or "how are you" from the staff. The animals are kept in TINY cages and just look miserable. Many had no shade, dirty water, and no food to be seen. Some (the wolf) had open sores on its body. The buffalo... More
