  • George the tour guide was AMAZING!!! VERY INFORMATIVE!!! Took a few campers here for a guided tour. The facility was clean, a great variety of animals. We were able to feed the trout and that was a great experience. Seeing the yellow spotted salamander up close was pretty cool too. Definitely recommend this place for all ages a great outing.
