Its free. You donate at the entrance just for the love of the animals and the dedicated people working there. Plenty of parking, people directing you to park, it might seem that you're parking far away, but there are safe paved paths that take you there in 2 to 3 minute walk. There is tree zip lining. Kids things to do, nice merry go round, not sure if its operating everyday or just the weekends, face painting and other activities You can buy food and drinks and eat it in the shade of the beautiful trees, or bring your own and relax You can touch and feed some animals, the cows, the goats. Its good to go early in case its a super hot days, then some animals go in their dens and you won't be able to see them. It may sound silly, but with the right mind set, it can be a stress relief experience for all, taking the time to take in all that peaceful, beautiful nature and make the most out of the day.

For a free zoo, this place is so nice! You can easily see all of the exhibits in one day and it is usually not too crowded. It is a lot of walking, which is good because it means that the animals have some room to live. I personally love the reptile house and the crocodile! It's great for kids and adults alike. But make sure you give a decent donation to keep this sweet little zoo going!

The Cape May Zoo / Park is by far the nicest zoo I have ever been too. Before you get into the Zoo there are multiple pavilions you have access too and along the way there is a very nice jungle gym for children to play on. The Zoo itself is wonderful, they have something for everyone, birds, big cats, reptiles, and a whole bunch of other animals. The facilities are clean, and very well maintained; this also includes the animal environment. The entry fee for the Zoo is free but I would highly recommend making a donation big or small to this lovely park. Overall very well done Cape May Zoo! Cannot wait to come back.

This place was incredible. There were tons of animals, and most of them were chilling in areas where it was easy to see them and they all seemed pretty relaxed, clean, and well cared for. I love animals so it makes me happy to be able to see that the staff makes an effort to provide for the animals' comfort despite their being in captivity. I have to give special mention to the small mammal exhibits. I got to see otters, bobcats, tamarins, and some other species of mammals a lot closer than I ever have before. The otters were an adorable pair and they were grooming each other. Also worthy of special mention was the reptile house, which is one of the sweetest setups I have ever seen. Every creature inside is beautiful and easy to view inside their enclosures, and there are some truly remarkable specimens housed in there. I could ramble on for paragraphs about how gorgeous all the animals were here. And the best part? IT'S FREE!!! Go there! And if you dig animals, put some cash in the donation box to help take care of them!

Really outstanding zoo. It's amazing that's it's free, but donations are gladly accepted. Easy to park, great playground for the kids... Reasonably priced concessions. The animals look healthy and happy, the enclosures are clean and well kept. My only complaint is that the bathroom we used was pretty dirty, but that's kind of unavoidable. Absolutely worth a visit if you are in the area.
