This award-winning natural-habitat zoo celebrates the spirit of wild animals with its free-form surroundings and progressive attitude. The lush grasses and natural shelters provided for the animals create an at-home feel for species from around the globe.

In the Cameron Park Zoo visitors will see tortoises from the Galapagos Islands, birds from Africa, and lions. The Herpetarium takes visitors into a world of waterfalls and crocodiles and spiders and plants—all colorfully and thoroughly explained by educational plaques throughout the exhibit.

The Brazos River Country exhibit follows the footsteps of early Spanish explorers who searched for the seven cities of gold along the Brazos River – featuring the flora and fauna from the Gulf of Mexico to the Caprock Regions of West Texas.

Experience in the Asian Forest expansion at Cameron Park Zoo. Beginning your journey at the Sumatran tiger habitat, you will slowly be elevated into the mid-canopy level of the trees where you may catch a glimpse of a rare orangutan,  hear the roar of a waterfall as it gushes from a ruined temple aquifer and look into the temple’s altar where the Komodo dragon rests.

Driving time from Tourist Info Center is approximately 7 minutes.

Rent the Zoo’s Treetops, Asian Forest, the Aquariums, Gibbon Deck, Lemur Deck, and other Zoo locations. The Zoo also offers The Pavilion, a 6,000 sq. ft. open air covered stone pavilion seating up to 300 banquet at rounds. Bridal dressing room, ceiling fans, and prep kitchen for caterers. (254) 750-8423.
