  • I enjoyed my visit. Although I had low expectations, it was great to walk around and see the animals. I look forward to the expansion.

  • Love this zoo! Pretty Small but super neat and worth the stop even if it weren’t free. The lynx is so playful and cute. Definitely my favorite animal there since I didn’t get to see the raccoon as out of the few that I’ve seen so far refuse to let me be their father and come outside.. anyways the Mountain Lion is the biggest one I’ve seen yet and was more traumatizing than the one that tried to eat me at the last zoo.. ( for legal reasons that’s a joke)
  • Wow, wow, wow. This zoo was a pleasemt surprise. My wife and i visit zoos all over the country. This was on a trip to the midwest. It was zoo 5 of 9 in the area. It is a very small zoo, but it really packs a punch! They had a ton of stuff in a small area. All very well maintained and viewable! Plus its free! Only downside if i have to find one was no gift shop. My wife gets a stuffed animal from every zoo we visit, and sadly this one had to be ordered online. Easy parking, great lemur and mountain lion. Also the only zoo on our trip that had good bobcat viewing.
