My kids love to come here! Although this is the second time we've been here, the amenities still needs improvement. But kids just love the idea of them petting the animals. More variety / choices in choices would need to be upgraded. Summer is the...More

Very clean, inexpensive and fun for the whole family. The staff was very friendly too. Great place, especially if you like to get up close and personal with animals. Looking forward to going back.

A very wholesome, fun petting zoo with a variety of happy animals. Well worth the drive from St. Louis (it's a pretty drive, too!) Admission is $5.50 a person for the 2016 season. For $3 more, you can get a generous plastic cup of feed...More

We have such a great time here. Lots of interaction with their critters! From parakeets to camels, goats, deer, snakes and a whole lot more. They've had arrowhead digging, camel rides, pumpkin patches and bouncy houses too. Always a great time, especially for the kids....More
