Great medium size zoo. Their collection might be on the smaller side, but it’s impressive. They are in the early stages of building an Utah wildlife exhibit & a P horse exhibit. They are to be commen… Full review by Shaun J

Our family went to Hogle Zoo yesterday. The weather was good and the facilities/grounds clean and inviting. However, many of the exhibits were empty and the animals we did see were asleep or lethar… Full review by Thomas S

I’m increasingly anti zoo as I see these wild creatures trapped in cages and small enclosures. It is cruel. The gorillas looked completely depressed. In addition, the place was so completely crowded… Full review by misanthropicdreamer

Q:
How many miles of walking on all trails to see everything?
A:
Dang, their website doesn't contain that info! Try "hoglezoo" The most it says is that "Utah’s Hogle Zoo dates from 1931 and is located at the mouth of Emigration Canyon. Its natural …

Dang, their website doesn't contain that info! Try "hoglezoo" The most it says is that "Utah’s Hogle Zoo dates from 1931 and is located at the mouth of Emigration Canyon. Its natural terrain covers 42 acres of tree-lined pathways where visitors can view over 800 animals." I think that dsjhoward is probably about right at somewhere around 2 miles. It's not a large zoo. (I was surprised at how small it was.) We spent a couple of hours there, but most of that time was standing or sitting to observe the animals.

Q:
I don't live in Utah but my daughter and her family live there on the AF base. Would you recommend a Family Membership for them? Kids are 10,12,14,16 and was wondering if this is a one time visit zoo or if they would enjoy several times a year? The oldest son is confined to wheelchair so I was thinking this would be a great family gift for all to share.
A:
We do live here (on base as well) and we’re fans of the zoo. But, with the kids being older, they may get bored after a couple visits. However, there are those kids that love going to a …

We do live here (on base as well) and we’re fans of the zoo. But, with the kids being older, they may get bored after a couple visits. However, there are those kids that love going to a zoo multiple times, ours did (all grown now) and we would have appreciated that gift. The zoo is very nice, family friendly and worth the money. You know best regarding your grandkids, as far as the membership being a good buy, I believe it is.
Q:
Can you bring your own wheel chair?
A:
Based on their website, looks like you can (see under Your Zoo Visit > Zoo Accessibility, can't link).
Q:
I want to know how to rent an electric cart at the zoo.
A:
Call the main number (801) 581-1700 and request an electronic convenience cart. The cost is $25.00/day. Am Ex, VISA, MASTERCard, and discover card are accepted.
Q:
Can I reserve an electric cart in advance?
A:
I'd agree with Carrie D. on the rolling paths. I suspect you can see most of the critters on the flattest parts of the zoo, though. I'd contact the zoo directly, if you're thinking of trying to …
