Don't be surprise if you show up and don't see what you thought you would. It's a very small zoo, but at the same time the kids will love just running around and play.

This place is not to big but it does have some nice animals. My wife & I enjoyed are visit here but we thought the bear cage should be bigger. I think the kids would enjoy seeing all the different animals.

While the intent was good, the facilities are below par. Better pens for animals is much needed. The animal variety keeps the rating higher than it should. Animals appear bored.

I found many of the animals here to be in small cages and appear very sad. The bear and lions looked matty. Only the mountain goats and wolf appeared to have enough room. Their "reptile room" was closed when we visited.

They have various North American animals. ie: Black bears, cougars, deer, and a boarding kennel for your dog - if needed. Kids love it. Reasonably costs. Only need about 1/2 hr to see everything.
