“Great Day Trip From Harrisburg”
Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

After hearing good things about Lake Tobias, I took the 45 min trip out. I'm sure glad I did. The park is on the smaller side which was perfect for my little one. The is a good variety of animals that are all available to be seen very close up. There are also many birds that are free range. With admission you get access to the park, a petting zoo, and a reptile house; for a few bucks more you can take a safari tour. There is a small concession stand that smelled great, plenty of picnic tables and the cleanest public bathroom that I have seen ever. All and all this is a must if you live in or are visiting the Harrisburg area.

“Wonderful family adventure”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We traveled to Lake Tobias and took the Safari Tour to start our day. We were able to feed all kinds of exotic animals as they walked up to the tour vehicle. The animals were friendly and well taken care of roaming free over the 150 acre park. Even the dangerous animals such as lions, tigers and bears were in large cages with fountains and moats. We walked through the new reptile house which was very nice and walking through the park we would look up in a tree and see a huge peacock preening itself. The petting zoo portion was perfect for kids of any age. This is a place for young and old. Reasonably priced and friendly, personable staff.

“Great Value For Kids”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Spend the day here and it can cost you nothing. Free to go... but pay for extras. Very reasonable. Take the kids somewhere for not a lot of money.. when do you find that anymore?

“Fun and wild!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Love this park! The animals there look well cared for. The highlight of any trip there is the open top bus ride into the hills to see the animals. Many of the deer and other such animals come right up to the bus. Kids and adults will love it!

“Animals up close!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

My sister and I went here for a private camera safari lesson before our trip to Africa. It was a great site to practice there were free roaming animals and many exotic animals as well, most of them were caged. There were free roaming zebras and many more. A great family friendly place with picnic grounds.
