We visited this zoo and was surprised to find out that it was free. They operate on donations. It had a bear, mountain lion, raccoons, birds, wolves, llamas, bison, monkeys, lemurs, and more. Nothing fancy, but a nice find while visiting this part of Kansas....More

Taking the hot day into perspective Zoo was nice small and for the tight budget Free. Buffalo calf was running around, most others like the bear cougar and bobcat were resting inside out of the heat. Pleasant way to relax and enjoy a travel break.

For a small zoo, this was an unexpected find in Dodge City and its FREE! There are many different species to see here that you might not expect to see in a smaller town.

For a smaller town, this is a nice zoo to visit. They had a baby buffalo that we saw along with some smaller animals. It's free and there is a place at the entrance to make a donation if you want to.

We have visited several times and especially love being able to feed the animals with the feed provided in the quarter machines. There is a beautiful park attached with great swings, monkey bars, etc.
