We were looking for ways to kill time with the grandkids and came to this little zoo. The whole thing probably took us an hour or so. Nice little trail from exhibit to exhibit. Animals native to the area - wolves, black bear, etc.

Its a great little Zoo with a very upclose and personal view of animals that you do not get in the bigger zoos. Also no cost but they do have a box for donations.

We went early and had a good time looking at the many animals. Definitely would be a zoo a family could thoroughly enjoy. The exhibits rooms were very person friendly with a good array of things to learn. We would go again.

A small town zoo, free, but to be honest, you get what you pay for in life. This zoo will never compete with a large city zoo--nor should it--but it is a very nice place to take small children for an afternoon.

Wolves and Bobcats and Bears. Oh my! This is a great 'free' (donations appreciated) community zoo to spend an hour or so wandering around. It rests beside a small wetland area to increase the wildlife possibilities. In addition thete is a fish hatchery on the grounds and a barn with farm animals to visit. A very nice family outing.

We went here with the family for the afternoon. It was nice. The kids really enjoyed the Prairie dogs the best. We also played at their park. It's not a huge Zoo but it's definitely worth the price (Free).

What a beautiful zoo, and the price is right! I really enjoyed the visit as did my 5 year old God daughter.

Not a whole lot of animals but we had a great time. Free admission but we put donations in the box. Honey bee set up was cool. Went in the building and you could see how they do their thing. Will be back.

We drove from Sheboygan with our grandkids for a trip to the Lincoln Park Zoo. I knew it was small and it was free so I wasn't expecting a Milwaukee Zoo experience. The first thing we saw was a lion drinking fountain which we couldn't get to work. There was a cute gazebo and some gorilla statutes that the kids... More

This is a nice zoo for little ones who can't handle a bigger place with more people around. It is very casual, no ticket office (just a few donation boxes), and no guides. I would be surprised if someone said there are more than 25 different types of animals there. There is a nice picnic area with a playground at... More
