Picnic or BBQ
Need something more than just a snack? We have a large picnic area with charcoal barbecue grills so you can bring your own food to grill.
The park does not supply or sell charcoal or other grilling materials! There's a convenient grocery store a few miles south on Route 26, where you may pick up all the 'fixins' for a great B-B-Q!
The Maine Wildlife Park provides a fascinating experience for nature lovers of all ages, and a great way to introduce children to the wonders of Maine's wildlife and the natural world. Bring a picnic and spend the day!
