Took the grandchildren to see the zoo. It is a nice environment and the displays are generally very nice.

Cameron Park Zoo offers camping inside the zoo. Small zoos are fun. You can get up close and personal with the animals.

Great afternoon. Nice weather and could see all the animals in just a few hours. We went on a weekday afternoon and only had to share the animals with a few other visitors.

There are better zoos, used to go to this one as a kid. There is not a lot and you can do it pretty quick. I would recommend just heading to dallas and spend the entire day!

Great zoo for family, teens and young children. Beautifully laid out walkways, paths and way finding signs. The zoo flows wonderfully from one exhibit to the next. Definitely worth your time, surprising amount and quality of exhibits for Central Texas.

Wonderful zoo! Very clean, shady, and well thought-out exhibits. My older boys enjoyed the sights, and my little grandson had a great time. This zoo is a great value for families. Fun, interactive exhibits/activities appealed to a variety of ages. I'd go back again!

This isn't a large zoo but it is a great zoo to visit. Parking can be a challenge in the summer months.

From when we first walked in we thought the zoo was going to be small. It was all hidden and looks to be built on a natural waterway.
