Spend the Day at Lake Tobias Wildlife Park

Lake Tobias Wildlife Park in Halifax, Pennsylvania
Lake Tobias Wildlife Park is located in Halifax, Pennsylvania. If you're traveling from the Harrisburg area, it's about a 30 minute drive up Route 322. You can find complete driving directions from all over Pennsylvania on their website.

Due to Covid-19 there are a few park changes. There Safari Tour is open but the Safari Buses are cancelled for the season. You'll now take the drive-through safari tour comfortably sitting in your own vehicle. I personally like the change! Face masks are recommended and are required in certain areas of the park. Please bring them along with you.
