  • I wish I could give this place ten stars. I was extremely impressed! I’ve worked with animals forever. I know and understand what a lot of exotic animal needs are. They blew my expectations out of the water. All the animals are active and healthy! There are plenty of signs around that clearly state to please be quiet and respectful most people were with the exception of small children! Wonderful! Staff was friendly! Would definitely recommend! It’s a small zoo perfect place for small children and tired parents! Lots to see! Wonderful wonderful wonderful! Will definitely come back if in Utah again!
  • Small, full of animals, and easy to explore! This is probably one of the most well maintained zoo I've ever been to. It was clean and the animals were easy to see. There was a lot of interaction between visitors and staff, making for a welcoming experience. The admission fee was reasonable and the food is a tad pricey. You do get what you pay for. Highly recommended!
