My kids love visiting the zoo and Kamper park (located right outside of the zoo entrance)! We pack lunches and stay for hours looking at favorite animals and playing with friends at the park! Inexpensive fun for all!

This zoo and park have been our favorite day away destination. The zoo continues to grow and now offers a splash park for our hot MS days!
The park is always clean and a good place to eat a picnic lunch while watching the squirrels play.

This zoo is very quaint and easy to get through in a morning or afternoon. The cost for entry was reasonable and it was easy to add on rides for the train. You get to see a variety of animals, and can feed the goats and sheep (which was my daughters favorite part). My favorite part was going to their educational class. My children got to touch and learn about some new animals.

If you want to go to the zoo, at a reasonable price, but not have to spend all day there, Hattiesburg zoo could be a good option for you.

This is a really good zoo any day of the week that it is open, but the best day of the year for it is their Birthday Bash anniversary held in April every year.They have also added a summer camp program for kids!
