    What a beautiful zoo! So clean and well kept. we live only live 35 minutes away and we didn’t know it existed…My husband and two grandsons rode the ski lift while I stayed behind and chatted with the cashier (Jean), I asked her a million questions, being my first time there and she was very knowledgable about the zoo and animals, what asset to your facility! She was a delight!Thanks!Helene

    I am sorry to read that this zoo is still keeping some of it’s animal’s in poor living conditions for the species. Years ago – 2000 or a bit earlier, I visited this zoo as a volunteer for the Great Ape Project. I was dismayed to see two chimpanzees being housed in a concrete “jail” with no grass, no room to run and play….just horrible conditions. I was told that the male had been kept like this for over 20 years and “that he didn’t know any better, so it doesn’t bother him.” I was also told that the zoo was building a new home for the chimps and soon Jingles and Bongo would be moved there. I visited the next year and saw the new chimp habitat which was a great improvement. However, only Jingles was there with another new chimp; no sign of Bongo. When I inquired about where he was I was told that he “couldn’t handle” the move (he went insane) and they had to move him elsewhere. Nobody would tell me what happened to him. R.I.P, Bongo, as it is likely you were euthanized. Shame on this zoo for treating it’s animals so poorly just to make a profit. 🙁

    Haven’t been there in a couple years. Have never been a big fan of seeing animals confined. That being said, they really do it right. The living areas are large and clean. The new giraffe area is really nice. My family really enjoyed the day. They hand fed a couple deer, goats, and birds. The price is very reasonable for all the animals they have. If you are going for rides, this is not the place. If you want to see many beautiful animals, this is the place. The Downie Family

    Quaint, pretty, fun for all ages. Animals are active and happy. My girls loved the vintage amusement rides. Food at Claire’s Cupboard was healthy and delicious.
