Spring Break

We hope that you will include Cameron Park Zoo in your Spring Break plans this year! We want to make sure that you have a smooth trip and that the whole family enjoys their visit. Because of the high attendance during Spring Break weeks, the last admission ticket will be sold at 4:00 p.m. each day.

Once the zoo’s main parking areas are full, we will have off site parking with near the Zoo for your convenience. Shuttle buses will run from 10:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and Sunday 12:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. We will have directional signs for guests to follow as well as shuttle signs marking the shuttle parking lots and bus pick up locations.

Tips for a great Spring Break!

  • Skip the wait and purchase your tickets online in advance! Visit http://www.cameronparkzoo.com/visit/tickets/  to purchase general admission tickets and then download the tickets to your phone or print them out to show at the admissions booth. Show your tickets at any of the ticket booths, including the membership entrance for a fast entry to the Zoo.
  • If you have a zoo membership, you will need to bring your card and photo ID with you.  If you don’t have a membership pass and you want to forgo any lines to enter, why not buy one today? Click here for more information.
  • If you have a membership from a reciprocating Zoo or Aquarium, please verify whether or not the agreement grants you free admission or discounted admission. Discounted admission will need to be paid through our general admission ticket booths. Click here for our current reciprocal list.
  • We have visitors of all ages, and many, many children. Be sure you can identify your child if you get separated, or give them something with your name on it so zoo staff can find you if they are too young to describe you. We recommend taking a photo before you enter the Zoo to show to staff in the event that you are separated.
  • Please leave your four-legged friends at home. They are not allowed to enter the Zoo, and a car’s interior temperature becomes deadly in a matter of minutes. The only exception to this policy is service dogs.
  • The Zoo has a limited number of wheelchairs available for rental through our gift shop.
  • Wagons will be available for rent at the Safari Outfitters Gift Shop in the front plaza on a first come, first served basis. Safari Wagons are reserved with a $20.00 fee with $10.00 being returned when the wagon is brought back. The last wagon rental will be made at 3:00 p.m.
