“So much to see!”
Reviewed October 9, 2011

Vacationed in Lancaster and decided to drive up. WOW this place is huge. Anything you need is here! So many people, can't imagine what it's like at Christmas. All the stuffed animals are so neat to see, like a museum.

“Cannot believe people drive from everywhere to come here.”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

Cabela's is a very good outdoors store, but if you know what you want just hit their website. This is not worth more than a day trip drive.

The Food
I've gone there a few times over the course of several years and tried to give the food a shot. The restaruant on top does not even have the quality of a mall food court. Theres another store on top that has really decent jerky, but its sold at a premium.

Great for families with little ones, it has a large aquarium tunnel with native species, the mountain of taxidermy in the middle, and a small coin op electronic shooting range upstairs. Adults can checkout the firearms gallery, which also can be found online.

They do have a large bargain cave at this location, which is cool, but like I said above some of the stuff in the bargain cave is available on the website.

Reason to make a long trip?
If you go on some weekends they have seminars.

“Huge Sportsman's Emporium & Wildlife Displays”
Reviewed July 18, 2011

Although we are not in the "sportsmen" category, this is the third time we have brought folks to Cabela's. Regardless of background, all have been impressed by this extraordinary retailer with a penchant for educating, to a certain extent, about wildlife. There is easy access to this giant, yet welcoming and attractive, enterprise along Pennsylvania's Route 61 where it intersects Route 78. It is also a beautiful drive in the countryside. The staff members we encountered were very pleasant and helpful. Skye at Reception really went out of her way to be of help. A shooting gallery is part of the fun. They have a fudge shop as well as an amazing array of hunting and camping supplies, footwear and clothing. This list would become too long. You really should visit for yourself. Cabela's could be part of a mini vacation or just a very pleasant Sunday afternoon and a successful shopping trip, as it was for us.

What a great store! All stores should be this much fun! All of the exhibits are so much fun to look at (aquarium, deer, bears, the shooting range), we didn't want to leave, several hours flew by very quickly. The staff was extremely nice and pleasant and the cafe had a lot of food to choose from including moose and ostrich. Great day at a great store!
