Catoctin Wildlife Preserve & Zoo

Photography, Tiger, Zoo

This wildlife preserve and zoo is located in Thurmont, MD, about 30 minutes from Gettysburg, PA. That’s actually how we found it. We had originally planned to take a road trip to Gettysburg. I started by checking out Gettysburg’s visitors page and found several suggested stop offs. We decided to make a day out it. We visited a local winery, spent most of the day at the zoo, and ended it with dinner in Gettysburg.

We recommend this location for photographers and families. The zoo offers fun activities including camel rides and safari rides. Plus, they have a petting zoo. Bring your camera because there are photographic opportunities throughout.
