It's right outside of Appleton, so I would consider it in attractions near there. The list it on their city tourism site, as well. This was surprisingly big and a great value.

I found myself sad during my visit to this zoo. I would imagine those running it have good intentions (I would hope) but the overall vibe is sadness. The cages are extremely small with little provided to the animals for stimulation or natural habitat. The...More

We took our grandchildren here last summer and plan to go back again. It wasn’t expensive and they have a lot of animals.

The saddest zoo I've ever been to. Sick animals, small enclosures, green water dishes, and the list goes on. Monkeys attacking the cages and bears showing signs of stress. This place needs shut down immediately.
