Lake Tobias




Last weekend was the last Saturday that Kurt would be with us before he moved back to State College for school, so we decided to do something fun. We took a little PA Adventure, both boys and Kurt’s girlfriend Shari. I have wanted to visit Lake Tobias Wildlife Park ever since my friend Molly went.
The day had been calling for scattered rain showers so we weren’t sure what to expect, but it turned into a beautiful clear day.
Lake Tobias was started in 1965 by JR Tobias, and his wife still lives in a farmhouse on the property. Our favorite part of the trip was the safari tour. You ride in an open top bus across 150 acres of beautiful hills on a one hour tour. There are all kinds of animals that greet you from alpaca, emu, bison, to water buffalo.
There is also a petting zoo, reptile house, and a section of the park set up like a more typical zoo. It was a nice way to wrap us to wrap up the Summer with one last road trip.
