Small, yet expanisive...from the aspect of what you get to see and experience for the $$$. LOVE it, we used to live in the Waco area and would go at least 4-6 times per year. We now live in N. Texas, north of Dallas, and still make the trip down a few times a year to go.

Great little zoo!!! We visited on a Tuesday & it wasn't crowded at all!! We arrived when they opened at 9:00AM & was able to see everything by 12:30PM, just in time to have a picnic lunch outside of the zoo. The animals were active & close. The zoo was clean & very enjoyable. Lots of shade through out the... More

The Cameron Park Zoo is excellent. Not a huge zoo, but actually the perfect size for a nice zoo experience. Clean, nice environment, and calm. We enjoyed our visit and would recommend for families. Just a very nice time.

We were very happy with our trip to the zoo. It was certainly HOT out but all the animals were active. The zoo itself was very clean and provided lots of shade. Half way thru the park, we came upon the cafe....were hoping to get a cold drink but the cafe was closed. Luckily there were some vending machines. The... More

The animal habitats were very appealing and allowed a close up view of most animals. It was a hot day so we appreciated the shady landscape and the air conditioned... More
