It's a small and intimate zoo that isn't crowded. It's great with little kids. You can take you time and see the animals up close.

The Cameron Park Zoo is a great place to take kids. It has an outdoors feel to it. The animal selection is pretty wide variety. We liked it a lot.

It is a nice sized zoo. Not too big. Great place to visit with children. The animals were so easy to see. Shaved ice was great. We did the zoo in a couple of hours with a three and one year old.
