This is a very small zoo and isn't what you would expect. You can get very up close and personal with many of the animals and see a wide variety. We visited in the "off season" and a few exhibits were closed but we look...More

This Zoo is relatively small for the price. Animals were easily seen on exhibits which was nice. Petting zoo was closed which was disappointing for my 3 year old. Clean facilities. Friendly staff.

This is a very small zoo, but the animals were fun to check out. They have chickens, goats, miniature horses, red pandas, armadillos, monkeys, eagles, ducks, geese and some other animals. An enjoyable visit!

Took the family and had a great time. There are plenty of things to entertain young ones and had some really cool animals. You can also feed some cows and goats!

Went with my wife, daughter and grandchildren. Had a wonderful time. Large enough zoo to experience a large number of different animals. Nice little area to get a snack and cool down if it is warm out. Take the kids and have a wonderful day

This zoo is rather small but it does have a nice barn section. I rate it as average based on experience today. I've been there before during summer months and it was better. Perhaps it's due to the season, there weren't a lot of animals...More
