We visited the zoo in August 2017. We have been to the zoo before. It is right-sized for families with small children. Enough interesting animals to see, and right-sized so the kids can walk on their own. We had children from 2 years to 5...More

I've never been when the animals aren't active. Always better yo see them up & around in their habitat. Kids are so much more exited remember things they were doing. A great selection of animals too.

This zoo is a great oasis in Idaho Falls, a great place to let the grandkids run. Small enough that they can see the animals multiple times and aren't worn out too much by the end of the day.
