  • Amazing experience, wonderful staff! What an exciting time to witness the interactions of these beautiful animals up close! Staff were very polite, informative and helpful. Definitely a place to have on any wolf lover's bucket list!!! The fact that it's on camping grounds is an added bonus, and seeing a deer, twice, made for another nice little bonus! Excellent place, worth visiting, and definitely going back! 🐺
  • The owners of the wolf preserve were extremely knowledgeable and gave super informative presentation. We were lucky enough to see new Young wolf pups. This husband-and-wife team demonstrate the ultimate Devotion to caring for these four different types of wolf packs. Very worthwhile for any age.
  • Had a great time camping at Camp Taylor over Labor Day weekend! The wolves are so amazing to see. Brought both my 4 y/o and 18 month baby girls and they enjoyed it immensely!
  • Lakota Wolf Preserve is a wonderful educational experience (even if you just want to see wolves). The couple who run it do so as a beautiful labor of love. They know the personalities and stories of all the animals they care for and it's obvious there's a real relationship between them and every single animal they've rescued. It was so cool to see each wolf come as they were called by name. The wolf packs roam in acres and acres of natural space, separated by secure double-fences that are dug several feet down into the ground and then back a few feet (wolves are proficient at digging and the fence being bent back underground isn't something they've figured out). The best part is when the human pack leaders start the wolf call. One by one, they all answer back. Experiencing that up close is truly not to be missed. Tip: Go in winter when the foliage is low and the wolves have their winter coats. You'll see more and have a different experience than if you go when they're looking a bit raggedy from shedding in large clumps.
  • Really great experience! Great for kids and adults. You get to see the wolves for a long time! Well kept place... very knowledgeable caretakers... DON'T miss the bobcat and fox portion... it was a super cool addition to the wolves!
