Great zoo for young children

We've been going here for a few years. Lately, though, they are hard into raising money and prices, making this less of a value.

They have a nice assortment of animals we did a one on one encounter with a lemur that was amazing she was so cute and friendly. Everyone is very knowledgeable about the animals and friendly the restaurant was surprisingly good as well very enjoyable

There are a lot of animals for the kids to see. There is a petting zoo. Also, there is a tram tour, led by a tractor (fun for the little ones) that's bumpily takes you back to see some of the wildlife like camels, zebras, horses and pigs. There is usually a Groupon deal you can use to get a... More

I drove over 2 hours to visit this place, it was not worth my gas nor my time. Kids were disappointed. Not enough animals, staff was not as friendly as expected.

We purchase tickets on Groupon for a group of 3 adults and 2 toddlers. We had a great time. It's not overwhelming for little ones and you don't have to walk 100 miles like a big zoo. You aren't going to be blown away, but you will appreciate the mom-and-pop feel to this facility, not overly commercialized. I would have... More

This is a great place, just north of Dallas, to spend an afternoon with the family. Check for ticket packages on Groupon. You can feed camels, goats, donkeys, horses and other animals. They take credit cards for all activities.

A good place to take the toddlers. Petting zoo was a highlight for our two yr old. The "shows" are more educational talks but they are not very long, as good for toddlers. Can make a good pit stop before exploring Ray Roberts State Park.

we took our 14 month old grandson and he had a blast. Really had a good time. We had a picture made with a lemur and the photographer was wonderful. It was a great picture!

A small but well run and maintained wildlife ranch northwest of Dallas. Lemurs, a couple of tree sloths, black bears, camels, goats, ponies, horses, zebras, and more. You can feed most of the animals there, pet them, interact with them. It is fun and their shows are educational. Time to time they bring out an animal or two and allow... More

This is definitely a mom & pop type of attraction. It's about an hour north of Dallas. My girlfriend found a Groupon for this place which is how we heard about it. The Groupon seemed to be a great deal, but they didn't tell you about the mandatory $5 you have to pay for parking at the front gate. Gotta... More
