This little zoo is in a BEAUTIFUL area in PA. We drove up from close to the MD line and just enjoyed the ride so much. The park itself is very much like one we have closer to home (Catoctin Zoo) which I didn't realize before we went out there. Thats ok though cuz it was nice to try something... More

Love love love! This is the CLEANEST animal anything I have ever been to. It was only $13 per person and that included both the bus tour, where the animals come right up to you and the zoo. The animals are well taken care of and seem to be happy. They are building another set of bathroom, the first set... More

I have been going since my daughter was 6 and she is now 21 to Lake Tobias. Very reasonable fees charged for all the animals they have to care for. The ride is fun, walking around is wonderful, petting zoo is cute, and picnic area is a wonderful idea! We almost always top and grab subs to take up along... More

Spent the day at Lake Tobias with a group of children from summer camp. First we went on the safari. The staff was very nice and knowledgeable about the animals we saw. The open air bus was a hit with the kids as it made it possible to touch some of the animals that came close. Next was the reptile... More

Small park, but well worth it. The safari ride gets you up close to a good variety of animals. If that's not enough, the petting zoo and other exhibits are just as fun.

We took our two granddaughters, ages 8 and 5, to this incredible wildlife park. We loaded the open air bus and drove out to where all these exotic animals were. There were babies born almost of every species. We bought packs of crackers to feed the animals. The most exciting part was seeing and feeding bison. Many of them were... More

Although the park is somewhat small I feel it's still worth the drive for a fun filled family day. Make sure you buy graham crackers before you go on the safari, some of the animals will eat them right out of your hand. The baby goats in the petting zoo were adorable and were my daughters favorite part of the... More
