“We went in the heat of the Texas Summer and still enjoyed it”
Review of Cameron Park Zoo

Cameron Park Zoo
Ranked #1 of 73 things to do in Waco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 4, 2014

The Waco Zoo is an awesome addition to a lot of unique places in Central Texas.They have a great gift shop and all the exhibits are placed so you're outside just the right amount of time before you inside an air conditioned exhibit.The grounds are awesome also.I would suggest you go before two p.m. in July and August.

We went on a Sunday and it was so fun. The website had a price of $8.00 per person, but when you get to the gate, you are charged $9.00 per person. Other than that we had a great time, they have lots of beautiful animals & exhibits and is pretty big to walk around on. There are lots of parking spaces and restrooms all over the park. If you travel in hotels, look where they have the brouchers area, and they will have a coupon for Waco Texas Cameron Park Zoo on there. Awesome place for kids and adults. I had a great time and I loved all the animals.

These animals sure looked skinny. I hope they are getting taken care of. Beautiful natural looking setting.

Pet store animals in a zoo? Either they don't know what they're doing, or they're too cheap to replace whatever they had before these pet store birds. Hard to explain conservation to kids - and why wild animals shouldn't be pets - when you see pet store animals at a zoo.

We loved how pretty this zoo is, the nice surroundings of the animals, and how easy it is to walk with nice restroom facilities! Our college age kids had the best time! It was like they were little again!
