A very cute little zoo

Almost completely shaded, animals very close, great nature walk. Wish I could have spent more time there. Will definitely go back.

The zoo was great. There were so many diverse animals for being a small zoo. The place was a great size to walk around and really get to see the animals up close. There weren't too many people there so we were able to spend time just watching and feeding the animals as we wanted. The place is very well... More

First time visiting the zoo, It was okay for smaller children. Price was reasonable .Very hard to push stroller with all the roots in the walkways.

Comparing Waccatee Zoo to Columbia SC or Asheborro NC and not much real positive to say. We went September 10 and it was very hot and of course the animals were not very active. There is parts you walk thru with antiques like cars but they are filthy and not original. The zoo is laid out stange you have to... More

Great interactive small "family" owned zoo. Tons of farm type animals that you could feed and see up close and personal. We have children ranging in age from 1-12 and they all enjoyed themselves and enjoyed being able to feed the animals. If your looking for something good local and authentic, great place to visit.

We have been visiting Waccatee Zoo since our children were little and they are now 30 and 37. On this trip we had our grand children aged 10 months and eight years old. This zoo is not fancy with all of the best exhibits but its simplicity is what makes it so special. The animals are all well taken care... More
