    One of the best things to do in West Virginia if you ask me. No exotic animals here, just locals living in really good atmospheres for the most part. You can't find much cheaper entertainment and its good exercise. The gift shop also has some good deals and a few locally made items.

    Although sadly closed this year we have gone to this animal preserve several times before. It is very nice to see the local wildlife and the area is quite accessible.

    I was there just last week and my son loved it! We had a blast! Affordable fun. $3 for adults and children 3 & up. The Otters were the coolest!

    The Wildlife Center is a wonderful place to take children! The location is a bit off the beaten path, but well worth the trip. It is calm, relaxing, and educational. There is a nice picnic area with restrooms. The Wildlife Center has elk, bison, otters, mountain lions, wolves, deer, bears, a bald eagle and more!!! It is free from Nov. 1 - April 1. During spring and summer, it costs $3.00 per adult and $1.50 per child ages 3-12. They also have a yearly pass. Credit cards NOT accepted at the gate.

    Mostly wildlife that once lived in wv. Built well as a forested walk. Pleasant and shady. Simple, clean, displays. Good for a morning walk with the family. Nice gift shop filled with beanie babies. Ice cream etc. A nice low cost low impact day.
