Really enjoyed our trip to this zoo. Even though it has a relatively small footprint, they have a great variety of critters including some super cute lynx kittens!

Love this local zoo with such friendly staff and animals. We went to a birthday party last week for a friend's kid and had a blast! Love the water area and hopefully they have the jungle gym fixed soon.

We spent about an hour there. As others have noted, it is a very small zoo, and no food is available. And definitely go in the morning during the summer!
