At Cape May County Park & Zoo, 550 animals are cared for in a pristine natural environment. Since its opening in 1978, the zoo has participated in numerous species survival programs. Now it is home to 250 mammals, amphibians, birds, and reptiles, and a breeding ground for snow leopards--large Asian cats with thick fur and paws for walking through snow. The park is known for being particularly tidy and organized. Picnic areas, bike paths, a disk-golf court, and even fishing ponds are available. Just remember, you cannot bring food into the zoo. However, you can purchase it from a cafe at the site, which offers healthy food, fast food, snacks, and beverages.

Overall it was great day. Fun, day trip with the kids. We had beautiful weather today, early Spring. The park was full but not over crowded witch I am sure could cause a different experience. If the park were any fuller I don’t think it would have been as enjoyable. So my advice is try to visit when it’s not overwhelmingly crowded. The zoo is clean and being updated in some areas that look really nice. Good idea to bring lunch. Very big picnicking area and playground for kids. Smaller children have a separate playground close by witch is convenient. I would either go earlier to the zoo then plan lunch after and playground, or go around lunch time, eat in the picnic area and let your kids play then hit the zoo till closing. Leave yourself 2-3 hours for the zoo part and another 1-2 hours for lunch and playground. Parking is a little tricky especially if it’s busy. So be patient while finding a parking spot. The zoo has a few nice little places to stop for Concession food. And several machines for snacked and drinks along your journey. Bathrooms were pretty clean but expect a wait in line depending on how busy it is. Foot traffic inside the park can be tricky to navigate with large strollers. I recommend single strollers if needed. Double wide strollers could get ugly if it’s busy. The park is free to enter just donations are given At will. Have fun and be safe! Worth the trip!
Went down June 2022 for a week trip. I enjoyed it. The zoo is well organized and clean. The staff are friendly. When entering, they accept donations so please bring some cash. It helps to keep the place running and the animals healthy and happy. Absolutely loved it since it was educational and fun to do.
