I have gone to camp here for 8 years and every time I still get excited to go and see the animals. The counters are friendly and can help you if you need it. This place will always hold a place in my heart.

Small, but interesting zoo. Our family was part of a Cub Scout group camping overnight. The programs, educational activities were very well planned, good balance of teaching, activities. The night walk through the zoo was an amazing experience, especially the aviary.
