Have gone each time we've visited - and we don't have kids either! Laid out very well - fun for a short or a longer visit. The peacock opened his tail!~ Very cool!

Fantastic experience. Super clean and neatly manicured. Clean bathrooms. Wide walking paths, I was never crammed or rushed by other patron. We saw all of the exhibits. Our daughter enjoyed chasing the peacocks (almost as much as her grandfather). We were there at a great, time, all of the animals we active as we got to them. Our daughter also... More

We really enjoyed our time at this zoo. Its small enough to get around in a few hours but big enough to keep you entertained. You can't beat the price, FREE! Free parking too. Nice staff, great enclosures and an all around good time for us and our kids. My suggestion is to get there when it opens and start... More

Love the CMC Zoo! They are always updating the animal enclosures and they have a great variety of mammals, snakes, and birds to see. There is no admission fee which is great and all the exhibits are easily accessible.

We took our 5yo and 2yo sins here and they loved it. They had a great collection of animals and the zoo is free (donations accepted). We saw giant tortoises, bears, tigers, lions, alligators, giraffes, you name it. We are members at the Bronx zoo and go frequently and were still quite impressed.

My kids and I have been to Cape May many times, but this was the first time with just my kids and I. On our way home we decided to stop and check out the zoo. My daughter had seen it advertised and mentioned it was free. The place was shady, nice and clean. It had a lot of animals... More

This was by far one of the best zoos we have seen. We have paid for worse. It was clean and very well taken care of, the animals were clean and able to roam in bigger areas. We definitely will be back. Make sure and leave a donation so they can keep up the great job they are doing!!!
