Vast array of animals including African Safari area. The presentation gets visitors close. Young kids will love this zoo. Small train ride and other young child activities. Worth traveling a big distance to see.

Went on a brisk Saturday morning. I got a $10 spring special admission ticket. I spent 2.5 hours here and saw it all. Lots of animals and many of them were active. Don't go expecting to spend all day...it isn't that big.

This is a great spot in Battle Creek. Lots of parking, reasonable prices, pavilions to rent or use and Wild Africa is really something to see. The look on kids faces feeding the giraffes is priceless. My family of 4 are members so we can...More

Check out the Fort Custer recreation camp ground. It is a State park. Beautiful property!
