Other Dining Options

    • Bring your own lunches. We strongly encourage students to pack a sack lunch and either carry it themselves or have a chaperone carry it for the group in a bag. Space to store lunches is limited  and is first come, first serve OR reserved for groups that have rented a shelter space for the day.
    • Purchase Lunch Individually. There are general dining options around the Zoo to purchase lunch. Base Camp Café is open year-round. Additional concessions are located throughout the park but are open seasonally and weather-dependent. Kids’ meals start as low as $6.50. Note: Lines may be long during our busy season. There is plenty of seating at all dining locations, open or closed.

Where to eat

  • Throughout the Zoo. There are small picnic areas scattered throughout Zoo grounds for smaller groups to eat. For the easiest lunch experience, we encourage each school group to carry their lunches with them and sit wherever they find a spot to eat at their convenience. Groups may sit at: The Historic Vine Street Village, Basecamp Café, The Grove.
