Ellen Trout Zoo Reviews & Ratings

  • This is a great little zoo. It's mostly shaded so it wasn't too hot. We had a great time here!

  • The zoo is kept really nice. Prices are extremely reasonable. The habitats of the animals are fabulous and roomy. I love the small zoos because they have more care and compassion for their animals. We had an up close and personal experience with one of the hippos. He was so cute with his nose pressed to the glass and just hanging there sleeping. The variety of animals is good. Peacocks have free rein of the grounds. There is even an albino female, so gorgeous. Giraffes, hippos, rhinos, lions and more. Ellen Trout zoo is a great place to bring children.

  • What a wonderful zoo. It was the perfect size to take our 2 1/2 year old grandson! All the animals were out and easy to see. The beautiful shaded walkways made it pleasant even on a July morning. We finished it off with a ride on the train and a little time at the playground. Perfect summer outing. Worth the hour drive to get here for sure.

  • It was family friendly and there was a lot of shade. If you are going to ride the train make sure to bring cash salon. They don't accept credit card at the train depot. Everything was great!!!

  • Wonderful experience! This zoo is great for a morning kids’ activity—or anytime, really! Everything is in great shape. The exhibits are well designed and very aesthetically pleasing! The train is wonderful! It’s always a treat to ride! The playgrounds are great to burn off some energy!
