The chargers are located at the top-right (northeast) corner of the parking lot. After you enter the parking lot, continue up the main road. Just keep going, past all of the aisles. The chargers are just to the right of a bungalow at the top of the parking lot. There is RV parking nearby.

There are two chargers. I didn't notice how many parking slots were available for charging.

There is a fee for parking except for certain levels of Zoological Society membership. The hours of operation of the Wild Animal Park vary according to the time of year.

The park is the only thing in the immediate area (as if that wasn't enough!). The area is an agricultural preserve, so there are lots of fruit and vegetable stands on the way there.
