  • This place is worth the trip! Our tour guide was very informative and patient. I had altitude sickness and they made every effort to make me comfortable so that I could still enjoy the tour. Each wolf...  more »

  • Allow a little extra time to drive on the gravel/dirt roads. Check their website for times. We went in the enclosure with three wolves at 2 pm and had a guided tour beforehand, but could have taken th...  more »
  • Ignore Sarah Somerville's nit picks about things the staff at Mission Wolf couldn't control. She visited in July. July is a hot month and she apparently could have just died of mild discomfort. She didn't like hearing the rules multiple times. Those rules are for the visitors safely. It's a wolf sanctuary, not a zoo so if the wolves want to hide from the heat and people that's their prerogative. It's a beautiful location with dedicated and friendly staff who go out of their way to give the wolves as comfortable and safe a home as possible and educate visitors about why wolves should be in the wild and not caged all their lives.
  • First of all, I realize that a big part of the experience is Kent, who wasn't there. It was super hot out and the "volunteers" seemed very disorganized (though nice enough). We heard the introduction to the tour 4 times because new people kept arriving. After almost an hour trying to get going and waiting in the burning hot sun we finally started the tour. The tour was lackluster and annoying. The wolves were hiding from the heat for the most part and the "tour guide" seemed to have a mission of making each stop take as long as humanly possible. In the hot sun, this was very uncomfortable and disappointing, especially after reading such amazing reviews. My advice would be to make sure the owner will be around, because without him there is no chance to go near the ambassador wolves.
  • Amazing if you have the time check it out, they are completely off the grid. They take excellent care of the wolves. Some wolves are tame enough to be interacted with and the owner will allow it. My kids and I loved it.
  • Absolutely an amazing experience! Loved every minute, even the volunteering! What great people, especially Kent, the founder. Just an amazing, down to earth, genuine individual with a passion to educate and better the world!
  • You should go here. You can camp out there or just go there for a day. You do a lot of work and you can meet the wolves. It is a wonderful place to visit.
