Went during off season but it was still an amazing experience! I can't believe how well kept it is even during off season. You could still see a lot of zookeepers feeding and cleaning the place. Also the zoo turned out to be way larger...More

There are several areas for picnics or you can reserve a shelter. The 2 playgrounds separate the young children from older kids. Although they are not far apart. The kids like the zoo for the animals. I like the zoo for the foliage. While there...More

I have travel to many cities to visit their zoo. I must say that this zoo although not in a metropolitan area is unbelievable. No let down here. On top of the fact that it is also free admission.

I was not expecting much at all. Boy was I surprised! The zoo has an excellent collection of animals, including some unusual albino creatures, roaming peacocks, and a creepy (in a positive way) snake and reptile house. A wonderful way to spend half a day....More

My girlfriend and I did more walking than actually looking at animals. There aren't many animals there and u can't even get close to any of them at all. I suggest the Philadelphia zoo more than anything.

Rainy day but still had a great time at the zoo. Bears were eating apples and monkeys were swinging and showing off. The Snowy Owl was super cute and the camels, lamas and zebras were fun to see. Some animals did not come out today...More

There are not many places to go for free and have a great time but this is definitely one of them. Make a donation if you like. There are plenty of animals surrounded by trees to cool you off in the summer. We have gone...More

We have been taking our twelve grandchildren here for the past fifteen years. It has only gotten better over the years. It is one of the best ways to spend a day with children and it's free! Take advantage.

There are several Giraffes at the Cape May Zoo. However, I am not really sure about the feeding policies. There might be signs throughout the zoo, stating their official policies about feeding the animals. I would imagine... More
