Horse Drawn Wagon Rides

 A real treat for families and friends

A horse drawn wagon ride is one of the best ways to experience Elk Country! Along the way, your wagon master will share helpful information about our elk population, the Elk Country Visitor Center facility, and the Pennsylvania Wilds environment.

Horse Drawn Wagon rides with the Keystone Elk Country Alliance typically take place at the Elk Country Visitor Center on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings starting the beginning of August 26th and running through the end of October–weather permitting and when we are able.  Times vary due to change in daylight. This ride does not guarantee that you will see the elk, as they are free roaming.

Reservations: We take reservations the day of at noon.   We assist guests in line first, if seats remain, we will take phone calls.   (You can call guest relations at 814-787-5167)   Be Aware: rides are limited and will sell out quickly (usually in minutes). If you choose to call, you need to speak to someone in guest relations- leaving a message does not count as a reservation. You must pay for tickets when reserving. We have our own private rides for our events at which time public rides will not be available.

***Please keep in mind that our Guest Relations Coordinators do their best to accommodate everyone–however, seating is limited and the demand for wagon rides during the fall season is high. Please be considerate if you are unable to get on a ride because it is already full.  Thank you!

Wagon Ride Policy:
If you reserve seating on our wagon ride, you must be here 30 minutes prior to your ride time in order to check in for your ride at the designated loading area. If you are not present and accounted for at the above times, we reserve the right to open your seat(s) up to on-hand guests.  During peak season of Sept/Oct you will want to plan to arrive one hour in advance due to high traffic.  Thank you.
