Started in 1994 on US-2 in Michigan's beautiful Upper Peninsula. Just 6 miles east of Naubinway, only 40 minutes west of the Mackinac Bridge. The zoo is a small intimate family run zoo nestled in the mature pine forests on the northern shores of Lake Michigan. We offer a child friendly atmosphere and people friendly animals. You will enjoy the natural wooded appeal of mature pine trees and cedar mulched trails. You will see, learn about and enjoy animals from all over the world. Stop at GarLyn Zoo and take a walk on the wild side, enjoy live animals up close.

We are in the process of building a new tiger enclosure.

Enjoy the Feeding Fun:

Children, heck everyone will enjoy feeding the deer, goats and llama. You can even feed Fuzzy the black bear, but be sure to count your fingers afterwards. No! Just kidding, apples for the bear are rolled down a tube from a safe distance.
