  • Went after all the rain so some parts where a little muddy, still was easy to get through despite the rain. Great animal exhibits.  more »

  • This time we visited, I work there cutting trees. I have taken my kids there before, they loved it. For people who like nature they got a nice nature trail, they got little classes inside, they got reptile exhibit, they got Birds of Prey exhibit. I personally like to check out the poisonous snakes. The kids really like the trail, and the birds of prey. I think at certain times a year they also have a butterfly Garden. Check it out it's a fun place to take your family. I'm pretty sure they have places to eat a picnic lunch and stuff like that too.
  • Visited for owl night and had a great time. It was well organized, informative, a great atmosphere for families and free! Well taken care of trails and a cool lodge with a lot to look at (including a baby gator). Definitely recommend.
