  • For a small "zoo" I was impressed! It was very interactive, unique animals, clean and well kept. You can feed or pet most animals. The adults had as much fun as the kid.  more »

  • Interesting little park in the middle of nowhere. With a surprisingly nice on site hotel. The park is filled with a mix of petting zoo animals and traditional zoo animals. This blend actually gets species that wouldn't have appears in either a zoo or petting zoo. Great staff. Also their Sloth experience is an excellent value that can't be beat.
  • My Girlfriend (who adores animals) and I visited while staying at nearby Seven Springs. We were very pleasantly surprised! I was skeptical about a random roadside zoo, but it turned out to be a great decision. Pros: The zoo and welcome center were very clean and nice. There were a surprisingly varied range of species. From bears, to lions, to monkeys, to goats, it was a tour of the animal kingdom. All the animals were very friendly. Most of them came running up to you. I fed many of them carrots (which are sold in the welcome center, and I recommend over the food pellets). None of them ever came remotely close to biting me, so I would safely say that kids could feed them as well. The animals and enclosures seemed generally well taken care of. There were a number of very informative plaques around with information about the animals. There were many random birds just walking around. Including peacocks, chickens, and ducks. This made the zoo feel even more alive. Definitely affordable. Cons: I never ran into an employee while out on the zoo grounds. This could have been because they were not busy, in fact we were the only people there. If we would have had a question or an emergency though, we would have had to run back to the welcome center. Not a huge deal though. Some of the animal enclosures seemed a bit on the small side. This was particularly noticeable for the lions, tigers, and bears. I’m sure they are well beyond the legal requirements, but it would have been nice to see a larger space for them to roam. Conclusion: A great place to go for animal lovers and kids alike. Girlfriend was beyond happy! Great for the price! Would recommend!
