Such a cute zoo

This is a very nice zoo. Not too big and not too small. It is very family friendly and the signage is excellent. We walked the whole zoo in about 90 minutes.

We had a great time. Spent maybe 2 - 3 hours. Lots of signs (like museums) to read. The baby orangutan was a special surprise.

Wonderful zoo. Beautiful landscaping. Trails are marked with distance so it could be used for walking. Excellent "small" zoo.

Cameron Park Zoo exceeded my expectations. We decided last minute to visit and we were not disappointed. It is a beautiful zoo with a large variety of animals.

My 25 yo daughter and I enjoyed a quick 1 1/2 hour trip. The animals were beautiful, and the walk through the zoo was pretty.

I've been to zoos in San Diego, Oklahoma City, Atlanta.... I had heard about all them before I visited them. This zoo and Oklahoma City were more fun for the kids than any of the others. Clean well managed facility.

We really enjoyed our visit to this zoo. It was well kept and the animals were out soaking up the early morning sun.

The Cameron Park Zoo is one of the most beautiful zoos we have visited. The animals are vibrant colors and all look so healthy and the scenery is breath taking for a zoo.

I loved it because it took about 2 hours to go through and there wasn't a whole lot of people like some of the big city zoos! They had orangoutangs (including a little one... More

This is a great zoo! It is not to big but still has so many animals to see and attractions for viewing. It is perfect for families with smaller children who tire quickly. All around nice place to spend the day!
