If you are planning weekend trips in Pennsylvania for a group, consider booking a table to enjoy a picnic lunch at Lake Tobias Wildlife Park between exploring our exciting animal-themed exhibits. Larger groups can rent multiple tables to celebrate a scouting trip, family reunion, birthday, or business event. In addition to weekends and summer weekdays, the park also accommodates groups by prior reservation on Thursdays and Fridays during September and October. Groups of 20 or more can get a group discount on ticket prices in addition to being able to rent a table for lunch at the park.
If you are planning to visit Lake Tobias Wildlife Park as a group, reserving a table ensures that you have space to enjoy lunch together during your visit. Tables can be reserved at a cost of $15 each. We accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover as payment for reserving tables. The extra-long tables accommodate 14 to 16 people each. There are eight tables per pavilion, and you can book one or more as needed. We ask guests to reserve only the tables they need in order to accommodate other visitors to the park.
Most small family picnics can be accommodated on numerous non-reserved tables throughout the park. Unreserved tables are free for anyone to use, so if you are visiting with just your family or a small group of friends, you might not need a reservation. Parking attendants can direct you to unreserved tables.
Tables are available at a few different locations in the park, and each pavilion has specific features that might work for your group. All five pavilions have electricity, so you can set up appliances or devices to support your event. Each pavilion has eight, extra long tables and each table can accommodate 14 to 16 people. In order to accommodate as many visitors as we can, we encourage you to not reserve more tables than necessary for your group.
The pavilions are all located around the lake and offer pleasant views of the park to enjoy during your meal as well as various playground options. For more information about our pavilion locations please refer to our Park Map.
Pavilion A (Not available for reservations.) This pavilion is used for our concession customers. This pavilion has electricity, a jungle gym play facility, and is near the public restrooms.
Pavilion B has electricity and is directly across from the entrance to the safari fields and the new Safari Station. It is in a more secluded area of the park near the public restrooms and has a pirate ship play facility for children.
Pavilions C, D, and E all have electricity and are located across the walking bridge from Pavilion B. There is also a jungle gym play facility for children. These pavilions are the closest to the lower parking lots and the Giraffe Exhibit. The Watering Hole Concession Stand in this area houses the park's largest restroom facilities.
Make a note in your planning calendar to book your table at Lake Tobias Wildlife Park when you are setting up weekend trips in Pennsylvania.
