Encounter furred, feathered and hoofed friends! Located on 30 acres in Frederick County, MD, Catoctin Wildlife Preserve and Zoo holds more than 350 animals. Our mission is to broaden human understanding of the animal world. Our zoo is perfect for group outings and is easily navigated by children and the winding paths and tall trees make for comfortable walking. Our exotic animals include tigers, macaws, monkeys, boas and more. A petting zoo allows kids to mingle with goats and other small animals. Throughout the summer there are interactive shows where the little ones can touch snakes and learn about grizzlies. See our artistic animals at the zoo as masterpieces are painted by your favorite animal, our Oh Snap! American Alligator feeding time or safari rides. Plan your adventure today! Yearly memberships are available and affordable.

About Us Our zoo is a private, family-owned and professionally operated facility. Since 1966, animals have been our extended family. We know their names, histories and needs. And we know how important wildlife and their natural habitats are to the future. We hope that through our personal style of education and introduction, these wonderful creatures will become your extended family, as well. Together we will make sure they and their wild-living relatives enjoy the future they deserve.
Zoo Welcome to our zoo where people and animals get closer together. We have over 30 beautifully wooded and landscaped acres and gardens for you to explore. We feature sun bears, lions, tigers, lemurs from Madagascar, kangaroos and dingos (from "down under") and some of the rarest and most entertaining monkeys in the world await you. Visit our Japanese Garden and watch the sunlight on the ripples of its calming waters. Feed the dozens of free flying ducks and geese wandering among our ponds.
Safari Delve into the depths of Africa, Asia and the Americas on our Wildife Safari Adventure and come within a breath of a two ton buffalo snorting up the steps of your Safari carrier. Laugh as the gawky camels and amazing zebra keep pace with your safari driver. See magnificent hoofed animals from around the globe. Enjoy petting and feeding the animals.
