For being a free zoo (donations welcomed and appreciated) it is a must do when in the area. Can be a bit crowded on a cloudy day as people avoid the beaches, but still a great day!

Wonderful place to spend the day with your family and the animals. Even though you might think the zoo is small, it really is surprising that it offers so much. With the price being only a donation, you can't go wrong.

The zoo is free admisson but they ask for donations which is worth it.It looks very nice with modern decking around most of the park which gives you a better view of most of the animals. There is lots of picnic groves for family get togethers. There is an awesome playground for the little ones near the picnic area. They have alot of animals so you wont be bored. I just loved how clean it was. It was the perfect thing to do with kids when viviting cape may. Just a 15 min. drive from town and worth it.

There is no admission but they do ask for a donation. From the moment, you pull in all of the workers are pleasant and welcoming. There is a nice variety of animals. The zoo is not huge but nicely spaced out. It is kept up very nicely. It's a great place to visit!

The Cape May Zoo is a wonderful place to visit. The admission is free, but they do ask for donations, which is a real bargain. It has been years since we have been there. There are playgrounds for the kids to play outside the park. Our children are all grown up, and we really enjoyed it.
