We go to Minocqua every summer and Wildwood is a must at least once or twice in our 10 day vacation. I have been going here for over 20 years and each year there is something new and exciting. This year I hear they are opening a new Africa area complete with Giraffes. I won't be able to keep my wife away. Don't get me wrong my kids and I love it too but my wife is crazy about Wildwood. No trip to minocqua would be complete with out a visit to Wildwood. As far as the price, I think it is fair when you think about all of the animals that need to be fed all year and Wildwood is only open maybe half of that time, and I would not want to pay the heating bill to keep all the animals warm through a cold northern Wisconsin winter. With or without kids Wildwood is a must see.

What a fantastic, fun, and interactive experience for you and your family to enjoy. I think any age will enjoy this zoo and it has animals running around that you can feed and pet (goats, deer, turtles). The goats are my favorite, but all the animals are wonderful. It is a little expensive, but the upkeep for the zoo I am sure is high so I can imagine why, but I feel there could be a price difference for ages. However, it is worth the money and the experience is wonderful.

This was the favorite place to stop with our kids when we were in the Minoqua area. Kids really enjoyed holding the baby animals & petting the deer. All kinds of animals to see.
