American Marten at ZooAmerica


Discover Your Wild Side

Visit ZooAmerica®, a year-round, 11-acre, walk-thru zoo adjacent to Hersheypark®. Stroll the tree-lined pathways as you learn about more than 200 animals from five regions of North America.

ZooAmerica is included in your one-price admission when you visit from within Hersheypark, or choose to visit only the Zoo and pay separately at the off-street entrance. View the ZooAmerica map.
