Creation Kingdom Zoo is ranked as one of the Tri Cities area’s top attractions. The zoo offers you a chance to get up close with a variety of animals from around the world. We have tigers, bears, leopards, many species of primates and more. Daily keeper talks will answer your questions about the animals we have. Go at your own pace and take as much time as you like. Bring your camera. Most visitors leave with the same comment – “This is the best zoo I have ever been to.” We are minutes from Johnson City, Kingsport, Bristol, and the surrounding area.
