This zoo aims to please, with extremely well-maintained habitats and a nice variety of wildlife to enjoy. Though in an isolated area, it's well worth the trip. The place just exudes affection for the animals and the humans who come to see them. The highlights for us were probably the interactive features, such as with the otter, racoon, and kangaroos....

We love this little zoo. It's not like a huge city zoo, but that's okay with me. Sometimes in those huge, well known zoos, I end up feeling way too sad for the animals. This zoo really seems to accommodate the animals in a comfortable way. There are a few animal cages that seem a bit small, but most of... More

Took my grandson there last week and had a great time. Beautiful lights to walk around and good hot cocoa at the stand which was well needed. A must see for the holidays.

Visited the Winter Light Spectacular with a friend and thought that it was a job well done! Opens around 5:30 at night and runs until 10. I visited on a Saturday, reached the Zoo entrance around 6:15 and was able to finally park around 6:45, so I would recommend getting there a little before 5:30 or come later (we were... More

We went and took in the Winter Light Spectacular at the zoo this past weekend. I was nothing short of AMAZING! It was beautiful! They had Santa there and inflatable snow globes that the family can get in and take pictures. They also had several bon fires lit and offered hot cocoa and kits to make s'mores or just roast...
