Visiting Clyde Peeling’s Reptiland in Allenwood

Clyde Peeling's Reptiland in Allenwood PennsylvaniaClyde Peeling’s Reptiland is a great place to visit if you enjoy wildlife parks and zoos. Located in Allenwood, it’s only a 90 minute drive from most locations in central Pennsylvania. They’re open year-round, although their hours of operation depend on the season of the year.

Recently we took little day trip up to Clyde Peeling’s Reptiland and had a really nice time. On the day that we visited, they weren’t crowded at all. If you want to avoid the crowds, I suggest going during a weekday, instead of a weekend. Just my 2 cents on that!

The park is broken down into four main exhibit areas: Dinosaurs Come to Life, Parakeet Landing, Exhibit Gallery and the Island Giants. Everything is well-marked, so you’ll be able to find your way around quite easily, which is nice.

On the day that we visited, we spent a good 2 hours walking around and checking out all of the animals that they had on display. We were able to catch the “keepers” feeding the alligators which the grandchildren thought was pretty cool to see.

I admit, I’m not a big fan of reptiles at all, especially snakes! Eww, they gross me out. However, I did enjoy visiting Parakeet Landing and seeing all of the parakeets and if you pay a little fee, they allow you to feed them too! Since I’m a turtle & tortoise lover, I really enjoyed seeing those!

  1. I would enjoy taking my grandkids to a place like this. They are so fascinated by animals of all kinds and I must admit so am I. Reptiles are so fascinating and it would be interesting to see the alligators getting fed.

  2. That does look like a place worth a visit. If I were ever near there I would, but 2,000 miles is a bit much.

  3. Wow I expected just a dino thing from the blurb and this is so much more. Reptiles kind of freak me out if isnt ventilated well, they have a particular odor to them. I wouldn’t expect alligators in your area, so hat would be interesting. I think like you, I would enjoy the birds the most, and kind of stare at the rest of them.
