This is not a large metropolitan zoo by any means, but it is rare in that it has only animals that are, or once were native to the region. I've seen plenty of Asian tigers and monkeys and such in zoos, so it was refreshing to meet some different critters. I like that people can learn about the interesting wildlife that is in their own backyards. How cool is it to stand next to a real wolf and share the walking path with an Eastern turkey?!
We've been a few times and have never had to deal with a crowd. Easy walking, plenty of shade in summer, and up close to the animals. Often, some of the animals are not awake, but that's true anywhere. Our highlight was the day that we saw the wolverine and fishers out and about.
