  • Such a cute “fun size” zoo! This place is the perfect size! They have otters, spider monkeys, flamingos, exotic birds, petting zoo area and more! The gift shop had something for everyone! We had lunch at their cafe then ice cream later and it was delicious! The staff could have been a bit more friendly but idk maybe it’s just their personalities. I doubt I’ll ever come back to Eureka but if I do you better believe I’m coming back to this little gem!
  • My first time here. This is a quaint zoo with a nice gift shop and little café inside. I managed to arrive not long before the otter feeding attraction which was fun to see. The Redwood Forest educational exhibit inside was also interesting. Definitely a nice place to spend some time. Will visit again. 👍
