Waccatee Zoo Reviews & Ratings
This place is truly disturbing. I have never wrote a google review but people need to know how mistreated these poor animals are. My husband and I took our 16 month old daughter and even she looked extremely concerned. The people running this place are not at all maintaining the living environments for these animals. There is plenty of space the could be utilized and work to be done to better this place that was probably once beautiful. The animals live in terrifyingly small spaces and some are even ripping their own hair out due to stress. Small goats have more room then the 2 bears and 2 lions. I am beyond disturbed and will not forget about these poor animals being completely mistreated. Do not give these people your money they are clearly not using it for the better good of the animals. Something needs to be done.
Awesome family run zoo. The staff are really friendly and there is plenty of share to walk around. Wear closed toe shoes for walking on the path as most of it is sand and dirt. The animals are ready to see and very close. Great for kids.
I wish I would have taken pictures. Who ever owns this needs to close down and find rescue for the animals in here. The poor lions and bear had NO room, just a small cage. The tiger looked very I'll. Pretty sure there were dead Savannah monitors in their cage. You may want to honor your dad or grandfather's legacy by staying open, honor the lives of the poor animals in this park. Someone needs to step in and intervene. Very sad. Please avoid this. It's not right.
I visit this zoo about 3 times a year. Small but fun to feed the animals. The antique car collection is interesting. The area could use some tidying up. And the vendor stations are always closed. Take a snack and enjoy it in the parking lot. Entrance is pricey, about $12.
This is not your standard zoo. Sand trails on a self guided tour that has poor signage. The goat to any other animal ratio is way off. One nice thing about it is that it is heavily wooded and thus well shaded, making it a nice reprieve from baking in the sun at the beach. If you take the time to stop and admire each animal, is will easily take you 4 to 5 hours to get through it. They sell all matter of animal food to feed the animals. The price for feed is reasonable.
