Interesting animals but it's a little run down. They have bison, wolves, a cougar, bobcats, a black bear, and Siberian tigers.

A free zoo! So glad to have visited a zoo where the animals can actually be viewed. Loved it and will go again. Afterward the park right out the gate was a great energy user before hitting the road again.

Since it's a smaller zoo it's great to be closer to the animals. I always love seeing wolves and was impressed with the variety of animals and obvious dedication of the zoo staff. It's free, but I'm sure they appreciate if you leave a donation...More

Total dump even for a free zoo, the park next to it, a little Mexican girl peed all over the jungle Jim, the grandmother didn't even acknowledge it, my kids couldn't understand why we had to leave

We visited this zoo and was surprised to find out that it was free. They operate on donations. It had a bear, mountain lion, raccoons, birds, wolves, llamas, bison, monkeys, lemurs, and more. Nothing fancy, but a nice find while visiting this part of Kansas....More

We like visiting zoos wherever we vtravel. We were unsure what to expect from this small zoo. First off, the admission is free. There are some nice animals at this zoo. You are closer to them than most zoos. We really enjoyed the morning at...More

Taking the hot day into perspective Zoo was nice small and for the tight budget Free. Buffalo calf was running around, most others like the bear cougar and bobcat were resting inside out of the heat. Pleasant way to relax and enjoy a travel break.
