REVIEWS OF Critter Country Animal Farm IN West Virginia

Dana Hodge

Amazing! Great for all ages! The owners love the animals (they call them their kids) and the animals are happy. Wonderful experience and can't wait to go back.

Debra Molnar

Better than the Pittsburgh zoo. The animals are well taken care of and have a great relationship with their owners ❤️

Brooklyn Pittman

I went for my 19th birthday because I love animals and the owners made it the best day ever!! The guy even let me hand feed the tigers, zebras and bears and let me in the cage with the bears to pet them. It was amazing !!!!

Lorraine Kunkle

Loved it!!!!!

Brittney Lehman

I absolutely love this place. We visit a few times a summer. Its so fun and such a beautiful place to spend the day with the family. We got our newest family member from here this past summer. Our kitten Luna. She is the best. Very loving & friendly. Her and my son (age 2) are constantly playing together. She sleeps next to him and they chase each other daily. The animals here have so much room to run and be free. The gift shop is affordable. I like that we can bring our own food in to eat there. Plus its only 10 mins from my house. Even if it wasn't close, I'd drive to visit. The employees are so friendly. The animals are cute and seem happy, not miserable like some zoo animals. This will always be my favorite family fun day spot.

Joe Trusnik

Nice little zoo located away from the bustling roads. Never crowded, not expensive. Many animals can be handfed, and they have feed you can buy. Not a big place; you won't be here all day. Be advised that the parking area is a grassy field, not a paved lot. Great little place.

Michelle Lycett

I went to Critter Country with my family. We had the best time visiting and feeding the animals. Our only regret is that we didnt get to see the tigers. We are already planning a visit in the fall in hopes that they will be out because it will be cooler.

Sierra Sager

George Zadanski

Great experience for everyone!

Natalie K

Wonderful place, great animals and friendly owners. We'll go back every year

Asa Ford

For the price, it is definitely worth a drive out. I nice variety of animals that you're up close to. The staff were all very friendly, and it was clear from walking around that the animals are all well taken care of. I will say though, the amount of parking was limited, but there was a large birthday party going on at the time, so I'd say that's an extreme circumstance.

Kimberly Brand

Love this place! And the owner is always around to see if you enjoyed your time!

Tom Holwell

Unbelievably easy to see a large group of animals

Tiffany Rump

John Parsons

Kids enjoyed it.

Mary Lew

Awesome for little ones.

callico jacobus

The baby tiger crying all day in a dog kennel was concerning. Other than that we had a good time. Cheap gift shop.

Bruce Rayner

very nice kids had fun


First time there today. Kids and adults loved it. Very clean, animals looked healthy. 8 year old loved the interaction. We'll go back this fall.

Robert Bratton

Nice people and happy animals. It's a bit hilly for people with mobility issues.

madeline rager

It was wonderful.

Ken Rager

Not friendly not welcoming it was very poorly done

Patrick Norris

The farm animals were neat but I kind of felt bad for the large cats and monkeys and wolves and bears. I'm sure they are taken care of just fine but thier enclosures were not very large and I'm just not a huge fan of wild animals in captivity. When I went, I thought it was just going to be farm animals and llamas and stuff.


It's a very lovely zoo, and entirely uncrowded when I go here!

Robyn Hall

This is one of the most awesome places I have ever been. It doesn't smell like a zoo. The owners are truly passionate about the animals. They are well taken care of and seem to be super healthy. I would recommend this for everyone to visit. Better than any zoo I've ever been to. You would not regret the trip there.

Mari Donohue

Lil Deb

This is over of my favorite stops in Pennsylvania. I shake hands with a lemur, feed the bear (and kangaroos and alpacas and deer... And the goats will make sure to get something), the "predator area" is always exciting. Great place for a picnic lunch and fun for the kids!

Denise Beluscak

A good place for the whole family to go.

art clark

Interesting and educational. The kids will love it.

Jerry W. Harper II

Awesome place for family and friends. Feeding the animals is so much fun!!!

Satheesh Bennet

Annie Chess

Kayla mcbryar

Heidi Kuhn

We weren't sure what to expect, but honestly this petting zoo exceeded our expectations! A nice variety of animals and enclosures are close that you can actually see the animals. The fennek foxes were adorable! The ringtail lemurs were very active! Peacocks were proudly prancing around in the open! It was just fantastic and definitely worth the admission price! Small gift shop. Be sure not to pass it up, cause we did ...sort of hard to spot from the road.

Sandra Kernicky

This place is A hidden treasure. Absolutely worth the trip . The owners are a delight to the experience. Would go back in a heartbeat!

Katt Funny

Had a fantastic time! We're definitely coming back.

Shawn McVay

Kind of hidden but fun family experience for a reasonable price. My kids loved it.

Tawaan Baker

Best place in whole Pittsburgh area to see never seen exotic animals. Thanks Laurie and Robbie.

Chris Villagomez

Love this place

James Clark

The ppl owners and workers are amazing we love going a couple times a year

meribeth harger

The kids love this place!!!

Tom Morris

Great place. Most animals close enough to touch.

Jennifer Rittenhouse

Monica Flinn

The animals were all muddy from poorly designed habitats that had absolutely no grass just dirt. The animals had no water, or if they did it was completely dirty. No food but the food kids were allowed to feed them. The ostrich had some type of disease on its backside. Sad place for the animals I would not recommend and hope this place gets shut down.

Jeremy Henry

I was skeptical when my friend wanted to have her birthday party at a petting zoo, but it was actually really fun. We even got to feed the big cats at the end of the day. I would definitely go back here. The people who run the place are very cool as well. This would be a great place to do an event like a birthday party.

Jordan Pavick

I absolutely loved this place! They were the most nicest, kind hearted people ever! They are so caring and loving to their animals! Definitely going back!

Dawn Payne

Very enjoyable!

Katie Garrett

Great place and very friendly people!

T. McNaug

Absolutely amazing people doing amazing work in animal rescue/welfare and education. We held a birthday party here and they accommodated 48 people and had things for both adults and children. I can't thank them enough for being such amazing people and treating our friends and family with respect. Not a single person left there unhappy (except for the children we could hear crying because they didn't want to leave!) Excellent place!!!

Randy Destefano

Great employees

Devin Eisengart

Best place ever. Well-kept well-maintained animals. Friendly people I am definitely coming back



Great, relaxing experience for the whole family. If has recently rained, it can be a bit muddy, so wear appropriate shoes.

Janette Schafer

We attempted to go about 6 weeks ago. The website said to call ahead to see if they would be open. We called at 10:30, the voice message said they would be open. We drove an hour and a half to see it. When we got there it wasn't open. We tried the phone number again and then it just rang busy. We banged on the doors and called out and nobody came. A wasted trip. Terrible experience we will never go back.

Diesal Berlin

Its cool and kids love it .

coach Joey

Fun fun fun

rose jericho

Great little petting zoo. Excellent price.

Barb Stookey-Keller

I don't like to see wild animals in captivity.

Sonja Franz

We love Critter Country and all the animals! Where else can you go to see and pet camels, zebras and alpacas? This place has it all and then some!

Ken Smith

Awesome place, awesome people!

Dorthy Mcbryar

It was wonderful

Charla Hiles

The staff was really nice. You could tell they put a lot of care into their animals. And it's just a really nice place to get to go and be up close to certain animals that you normally would never be able to.

Michelle Ellisor

It was way better than going to the zoo. The animals are very well taken care of. We will deffinantly be going back!

Karen Maxwell

Small but cute.

Kathy Shaffer

Vallery Patrick

I'm not really sure how I feel about this place. My biggest qualm is the animals feel a little cramped in their enclosures.

lindsey mckibbin

Stephen Uhar

My wife and took are grandson recently, the baby had a blast, my wife and l were delighted. Definitely recommend!!!


Super cool! I did not expect them to have the animals that they did and you can get very close. Definitely like a hole-in-the-wall type of place where it is way better than you could’ve expected.

Kathleen Adams

Had a fantastic time with the family! Animals are well taken care of, staff is extraordinary, and we look forward to returning.

Samantha Hancheck

Went for a class trip, the kids had a great time.

Rebecca Molesky

So much fun! You have to buy carrots and feed for the whole experience. The woman and trainee at the register were so nice. We will be back! This place is really cool.

Joey K. Phillips

Patricia Bisko

This is a fun place to visit...They have a lot of animals...

Mary Moss

grandkids had an awesome time. they really enjoyed feeding the animals. we will definitely have to go back!

Tonya Bair

This is a fun eclectic animal sanctuary with the most unusual combination of exotic, domestic and farm animals. We were pleasantly surprised..... The grounds are simple and the staff friendly. The only public bathroom is a porta John with no sanitizer.... But there are a few non plumbed hand cleaning stations. A baby tiger Cub was resting with Aussie dogs. Camels, ostrich, Alpaca, wolf, bears, zebras, macaws housed with chickens. A very unexpected combination throughout. Small gift shop with some drinks. It's a interesting and inexpensive experience that's up close to animals that you often never get so close to.

Adam Ant

Jenny Aust

This is a great little place to take your friends and family. The owners are wonderful and staff are all very friendly. Nobody will try to rush you along, but instead have an actual conversation with you! Can't wait to go back again.

Andreas Medeiros

Good family fun

Stephanie Forsythe

This place is so cute! The owner and the workers were extremely friendly and down to earth. It was fun to feed and interact with all the animals there. The buffalo was so sweet and so were the lemurs! The owner was so generous that he let me feed the baby camels their milk! Go here if you want a personal, low key interaction with wild animals. :)

Tabatha Jerson

My husband, kids and I absolutely love this place! If you have never been here, then you are missing out. Plenty of different animals to feed and touch. The owners are amazing people! So friendly and so knowledgeable! We will continue to visit and watch the little ones grow up and be excited for any and all new arrivals.

M Forcier

This was a well hidden gem. We had never heard of this place and decided to try it because there were excellent reviews. There are a lot of animals, well cared for, and very friendly. If you like a lot of hands on interaction with animals this is the place to go. We had a great time and we will visit again soon!

Janice Beardmore

This place is amazing. Way above what I expected. So many animals. People are so nice too.

Nancey Greer

Love all the animals

Kate Woods

Anthony Bordonaro

Loved it

Jocelyn Brindo

This place is outstanding! I could not believe the dedication and passion this couple has for animals. They rescued many of these animals from unfortunate situations and have given them a loving and nurturing home. You must see this place and support this unique establishment.

Alanna Pitt

Dana Venturo

Faith Bryner

Omg thia place is AMAZING! What a great day trip for (myself mom and grandma) ladies fun day. I am in love with baby Mable (the sugar junkie

Katie Shreve

I can not express enough how remarkable my experiences have been at Critter Country! Tucked away from the busy chaos on the highways, just a short distance beyond the Smithton exit, you will experience everything from dedicated wildlife preservation to the most genuine animal enthusiasts I’ve ever met. A small grass lot makes up the parking area (note that I said “dedicated wildlife preservation”) and the start of your adventure is introduced with a cozy gift shop. I was very kindly welcomed at the front desk by a woman named Jane. She was so polite in answering all of my questions about rules and prices. The prices to get in are far lower than they could be charging in my opinion! Over 100 different species of animals are clearly on display, some being able to feed and pet! The enclosures are extremely well maintained and all of the animals are visibly in great health! Each time I have visited, it takes about 2 hours to pass through seeing all the animals. The staff are pleasantly social and more than catering to any questions. I’m the type to ask a lot. I was fortunate enough to meet the owners. Both are vibrant personalities who genuinely care about your experience! My favorite part of everything there is the fact that there’s no doubt in my mind, these people own and operate this business with passion for wildlife and dedication to treat it well. There is a convenient portable John restroom just behind the gift shop. It was surprisingly clean and I was even more excited about the hand sanitizer! Overall, the only negative aspect that I can highlight is that they do eventually have a closing time and I can’t just stay forever!

Nice place to go locally.

Jordan Conde

Albert Lawrence

Rachel Truong

We had SO MUCH FUN here! And the animals appeared to be very well-cared for. Great value and great fun for the family.

Ed Paskan

Great owners / personal tour Loved it! (And the assortment of animals)!

Ashley Boggess

We went as a field trip with my daughters headstart, it's a very nice place! Doesn't take long to walk around, we were there 2 hours. They have a wide variety of animals, and take very good care of them. Pricing isn't bad either!

Lyric Brimage

I took my boyfriend and our 9 month old son here today and let me tell you... I had a wonderful experience. They had more animals than I had initially thought. Everything from black bears, tigers, panthers,zebras, all sorts of birds, kangrooes,wolfs, bob cats, horses, cows, pigs, monkeys, lemurs, goats.. etc. All the staff there were extremely friendly w. great customer service skills as well.... it’s not too big. It probably took us about an hour and a half to walk through the whole thing. It wasn’t crowded which was nice.... only reason why I wouldn’t rate it a 5 star because some of the signs that tell you about certain animals were to far to read or there wasn’t any.. but overall great experience.

Dan Brandt

Really enjoyed this little zoo. The grandaughter loved feeding the animals

Ronald Blanish

What a great place to visit with your family

stephanie croyle

Awesome! The kids loves all the goats following them around! Planning our next trip already.


Good amount of animals. It's like a mini zoo but you can feed and pet them all. But the cages and fences need to be fixed. There is wire just hanging down and the poor goat kept getting stuck in it. I had to stick my arm in the enclosure to try and help him get free twice. If the fences were built better they would get more stars. But right now it is just unsafe for the animals

Caitlyn Cawley

Tamara Uhor

Love ❤ taking my son here cute gift

Harry Thomas

Nice and close for family time not to big and too small had a blast

The next beat thing to going to the Pittsburgh Zoo...and you can even touch some of the animals
