There are three general-purpose concession stands at the park, the Hub Refreshment Stand, Safari Station, and Watering Hole. These stands are stocked full of drinks and treats such as candy and popcorn. Additionally, this is where you can purchase animal food to feed our animals – carrots, pellets, and popcorn! Due to safety regulations and possible contamination, only animal food approved by the USDA to feed our animals is sold at our concession stands and this is the only food that may be fed to the animals. You can also find our park managers and first aid staff at these concession stands.
Hungry for more than a light snack? We also have three food service areas at the park – the Grille & Grub, Lakeside Eats, and the BBQ Shack. The Grille & Grub offers hot food such as burgers, fries, and our renowned bison burgers. Across from the Grille & Grub, you can get subs, tacos, burritos, and delicious pretzel bun sandwiches as well as a large variety of frozen treats from our Lakeside Eats. This includes hand-dipped ice cream, Slush Puppies, and giant freeze pops! The BBQ Shack offers pork, chicken, beef, BBQ sandwiches, Mac and cheese, and other picnic-type food items. All three locations close 30 minutes before park closing.
Visitors are also more than welcome to bring their own picnic lunches to enjoy at the park using one of our five outdoor pavilions.
Groups of 20 or more who have scheduled ahead of time may organize with the park to have their food made in advance from the Lakeside Eats to reduce waiting times. If you are interested in pre-ordering your food please contact the park office at (717) 362-9126 at least two weeks before your scheduled date. Please understand that this service may not be available every day and is limited to one pre-scheduled group per day.
