WiFi & DirecTv Service

Each cabin houses at least one flat screen TV with DirecTV service. The cabin area also boasts pretty decent WiFi signal thanks to our awesome providers, Hill Country Wireless! Please keep in mind that the signal sometimes varies depending on factors outside of our control. Though this is inconvenient, we do not offer any discounts or monetary remedies in the case of lacking internet signal. We hope guests can unplug & relax when staying with us!

Complimentary Guided Tour, Drive-Thru & Petting Zoo

Guests receive one Guided Tour complimentary with the stay. At this time, we are also allowing guests to drive around the park in their own vehicle to visit the animals as well, at their own risk. The petting zoo is also open and can be enjoyed at any time during the visit!

Resort Pool & Waterfall

We proudly host two resort-style swimming pools!

Our original pool has a small wading pool that’s perfect for little ones and a deeper pool for older kids and adults. The pool overlooks the center pasture and lake area, where one can watch all of the roaming animals and take in the breathtaking view of the surrounding hill country. It is also equipped with a beautiful waterfall filtration system!

The secondary pool is brand spankin’ new! It is more centrally located between the cabins. It has a tanning shelf and built in seats, and beautifully slopes down to 4 foot deep! This pool is placed right next to our kangaroo exhibit! Guests are sure to have animal entertainment, even while cooling off in the pool.

Remember to bring pool towels, we do not supply any!


We recently had a brand spankin’ new playscape installed! It’s sure to be a hit with the little ones!

Community Patio

The community patio hosts a billiards table equipped with pool sticks and balls! It’s perfect for some friendly competition.

Not a pool shark? That’s OK, you can still enjoy our projection screen TV! It’s fully equipped with DirectTv channels and surround sound.

Not to mention, the porch boasts amazing views of our entire cabin area and surrounding pastures of free-roaming critters. The community patio closes at 10pm!

Outdoor Grillin’

All of our cabins are equipped with a personal charcoal barbeque pit. Bring along utensils, charcoal and lighter fluid!

We also have a Texas-sized wood-fired BBQ pit by the community patio that’s perfect for entertaining a larger crowd. Additionally, all cabins have personal picnic tables for outdoor dining!

Nightly Campfire

There are five small fire-rings perfect for the family to enjoy a quiet camp fire to cook up some s’mores or hot dogs.

We provide a container of starter fluid and you can purchase a bundle of campfire logs for only $5 at the gift shop! You can usually find a stick lighter in your cabin, but we recommend to bring one along with you!

Hill Country Views

All of our cabins have personal sitting areas on the front deck. These were constructed with the hopes that guests would enjoy the beautiful surrounding Hill Country with loved ones. We want everyone to see exactly why we picked this location for our beautiful animals to call home.

Our favorite view can be found atop the top balcony of the Elk Lodge!

We work hard to maintain all of these free amenities and keep our pricing as low as we can. However, we do reserve the right to alter these amenities at any time, without notice as we see fit for our establishment!

We are open EVERY DAY!

The only days that the Exotic Resort Zoo is closed is Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
