Can you believe that this facility is free. It is so well run and clean that we will return again when we have more time to spend. Please give yourself at least 2 hours and have good walking shoes. You will not regret a visit here.

My four kids are all in their 30s now and we, as a family, still enjoy our annual visits to the Cape May County Zoo. It's not just fun for little kids. It's fun for everybody. And, it's free! It's also enjoyable to visit several times during the year, during different seasons, to view the animals and how they adjust... More

We go to this zoo once a year and are always so glad we did. It's by donation, which we try to be generous, but it's still nice to not be over charged. It's clean, a lot of animals and they have room to roam. We've packed a lunch and ate it at the picnic tables both in the zoo... More

The Zoo does not charge admission, only ask for a donation. Please be generous!. They do a lot to preserve and promote local wildlife.

Love this zoo!! The grounds are so clean. Animals all look very well cared for. None of the animals are crammed in tight spaces. They all have plenty of space to roam. Bathrooms are always very clean. Even when it's crowded, there is still plenty of space for you to manuever throughout the zoo, and see all of the attractions.... More

The nice weather sparked us to take a trip to the zoo. This zoo is always well kept from the parking-lot to the bathrooms and everything in between. The animals looked well cared for and the kids were playing on the play ground. One of the last no fee places I know of!!! I hope everyone will donate to keep... More
