Oxbow Park and Zollman Zoo are a campground and zoo located in Olmsted County, Minnesota north of the city of Byron, and about 4.5 miles (7.2 km) west of Rochester. It houses over 30 species of animals, most of which have injuries that would prevent them from surviving in the wild. All of the animals are native to Minnesota. The zoo is named after Dr. Paul E. Zollman. The most popular animals include a wolf, bald eagle, white-tailed deer, coyotes, bobcat, river otters, bison and cougar. Oxbow Park is open most of the year, as is Zollman Zoo, with a majority of the animals being visible year round.

  • Great place, kids loved it. Kind of on the small side, but still took us almost 2 hours to sight see everything. Nice little swing and open area on the bison side to relax and let the kids play. Had a beautiful little trail thru the wild flower garden.
  • This is a nice small zoo in the middle of next to no where. Well done exhibits. It is nice to see a zoo focus on local animals. Plus, it is free! You cannot lose on this place.
