Waco tours took us to Cameron Park. We might have missed it if not for them. Beautiful place, so glad we got to visit

The zoo is a super zoo. It is very well laid out keeping the animals in beautiful natural surroundings. The animals are well cared for. It is a lovely stroll for all with hands on and playground activities throughout. The Asian exhibit is my favorite.

Amazing zoo, and beautiful setting... So much to see. Location just out of town, and shaded park, when the heat is so intense.

The Park is a beautiful spot for this Zoo. Natural habitat style, tree shaded and many water features. Convenient parking. Many activities planned during the year, they have a website, so check the activities for the time you will be visiting.

I really enjoyed the Zoo. For a smaller Zoo it had plenty of exhibits. Lots of beautiful fauna. The layout and paths that you take keep you from having to back track. A lot of tracks covered by the trees.

We had a great time at this family filled zoo. It was super hot so I recommend not going in July unless you get there super early or late but we had a great time.

I would agree with all, 2 hours is a good amount of time. Can you walk through the whole thing in an hour, yes. But to stop and watch, play on the slides and stuff, maybe have a drink on the deck... Two hours plus. If you... More
