  • This site is open 12.5 hours per week and requires an appointment, generally days in advance. It is a part-time operation with the site locked up 82% of the time a normal tourist attraction is open.

  • Wonderful tour!!! My daughter and I went for her birthday so informative and fun. The owners are the tour guides and take such good care of these amazing animals. You can tell their passion for the reason for their preserve. I highly recommend it. Please do rare or choose to sponsor a Wolfe if you can too and help them continue to keep this beautiful species with us !!!
  • The owners' love and respect for animals was so inspiring. I could listen to them (Becky and Jim) teach us about wolves, lynxes, bobcats, and foxes all day long! They are both incredibly entertaining, kind, and knowledgeable. The 15 minute hike up is doable but it is uphill and some may find the shuttle option preferable. Travel tip - the campground restrooms by the parking lot are very clean!
  • I've been to the Lakota Wolf Preserve twice now. I did the very crowded bus tour on the weekend and after that visit I scheduled a private photography tour. The couple running the preserve is very nice and incredibly knowledgeable about their wolves. They've done an amazing job at providing the wolves with a properly sized natural environment and by making sure that the wolves in each of the quadrants are compatible with each other. I loved both of my opportunities. However, the private photography tour was an amazing experience as it was just myself and one of the owners with all the wolves. It was so awesome that I will likely plan another private visit sometime in the future.
  • Great experience! Making a reservation and check in on the premises was simple. My wife and I took the shuttle up to the main tour area (you're given the option to walk up a rocky trail to the tour as well however we opted to take the tour bus up and enjoy walk down afterwards on the trail 👣) These wolves certainly know "It's Tour Time" once they see the owners/tour guides they come running right over. Very informative tour, wolves are amazingly interactive, howling, playing, eating. You can tell these people care so incredibly much about these animals (lynx, bobcat and foxes included of course). After some time with the wolves you work your way to the bobcat, lynx and fox area. Afterward you can certainly take the tour bus back or walk down the trail towards the entrance/parking lot area of the camp ground. Obviously my pictures doesn't do the experience justice (however some of the professional photos certainly do! 👏🏻) certainly coming back and just down the road for a quick bite I recommend (as does the Lakota folks) Buck Hill brewery and Restaurant, nothing like a cold beer after seeing some wolves 🐺 🍺 🍻
  • Great tour with decent entry fee per person!! You will learn a lot about wolf, lynx, bobcat and fox. Very educational!! The owners are knowledgeable and willing to share anything they know. Great spot for family with kids and people loving animals.
