Unique to this campground: fishing is available, there is playground on site and a horseshoe pit for adults and walking trails.
This weekend at Tiger World: Celebrate and help the environment this Earth Day! Bring any potted tree, bush, shrub or flowering plant to Tiger World from April 22 – 29 and receive one free admission (1 per customer). This will help beautify the zoo and help our planet.
Tiger World is an endangered wildlife preserve promoting conservation through education. You can walk around and enjoy the animals, and for an additional cost ($5 per feed cup), you can also feed some of the animals including the monkeys, bears, and birds.
