Nice, affordable small zoo. Spent about an hour here. Wish some of the enclosures were larger for the animals. Nice facility. Would give it a "5" if they had real restrooms. All they had were dirty port-a-johns the day we visited. 30-40 minutes west of...More

Really enjoyed ourselves here. We four adults were impressed with the well maintained walkways, very comfortable under foot. For a small zoo it was VERY well kept, the animals seemed relaxed not stressed and they had plenty of water & shaded areas. It's sad to...More

If I am not mistaking they do have a wheelchair ramp to and from the Gift Shop. I have seen others use wheelchairs while there, the ground is well packed but not paved.
