My wife and I were excited to visit. When we got there the animals looked malnourished and in cages too small. It was not a good place to visit at all.

Has a small collection of local animals. Young children especially find this place very interesting. Have a generous sized parking lot and is located just SE of Bemidji on Hwy 2.

The deer were pissing in the same water they were drinking out of. There was a doe franticly looking for a place to give birth. The bear were in very small exclosures. This place is horrid and should be shut down.

Great for families with small kids, and older for that matter. Kids were able to feed the animals and pet some of the deer and other small animals. Great selections of animals for a small zoo.

Very kid friendly and affordable! You can pet many of the animals and feed them from your hand. Great selection for a small place. Picnic area so you can make a day of it.
