Visitors to Devils Lake, Wisconsin Dells, and Circus World Museum can take an additional stop to visit exotic animals at Baraboo's free zoo. The lynx enjoys attention and the monkeys are always active. Among the bears, lynx, and wolves one of the most popular animals at the zoo are chickens that strut around the grounds.

Circus World Museum hosts tiger and elephant shows in the big top. You can easily put together a animal lovers dream tour in the Baraboo/Dells area.
