  • Overall excellent experience...Even with it being a rainy night. Be patient - LONG line of traffic to get in but well worth it. Able to see many wolves and even heard 3 howl!!  more »
  • This was our first trip to the Wolf Sanctuary. I was not expecting the hundreds of people and the wait time to get into the sanctuary to park and then the lines to see each wolf area. That being said,...  more »
  • We were very excited to do the Full Moon Tour after hearing all the good reviews and it was a total let down. The place was overbooked and way too crowded to be able to see anything. We waited in traf...  more »

  • Wonderful place with great staff. I enjoy my visit very much. There is a pretty steep dirt hill to see some of the enclosures so be prepared for that. They do feedings every other day starting on Sunday. I have have heard alot of people go to the full moon tour(300+ for yesterdays)
  • The animals are treated very well, guests not so much. First the positives. The wolves all seem to be very well cared for with visible food and water, clean living areas and behaviors that suggest that they are handled very well, loved and cared for. In terms of the wolves we highly recommend the preserve. However, from the moment our group arrived the staff was arrogant, condescending and downright rude. Their attitudes killed the experience for us and it began before we even got out of our truck as two different staff members tried to park us at the same time and they argued with each and then yelled at us for trying to follow their directions. Then when we arrived it was a fiasco. We had arranged in advanced for a large group to attend (about 40 people). Despite the fact that we had made advanced arrangements, the staff was clearly unhappy with the size of our group. They complained openly about how many people were with us and the fact that we had children. Then they made us all show them our wrist bands six times before allowing us inside to ensure that "we didn't sneak anyone in" their words. They proceeded then to follow us around and yell anytime a child made a noise or anyone talked too loud. Then they told us we could take photos but not video because someone before had posted a video along with a negative review. We only took pictures but the staff still wanted to see our camera. I'm sorry but they have no right to inspect the personal property of their patrons. When it was all said and done they way we were treated ruined the experience for us completely. We only saw a few animals as the entire place is really small and so not worth the hassle.
  • If you love wolves them this a must see attraction. All the wolves are well cared for and loved. I suggest the guided tours because the guides are very knowledgeable and you will learn a lot about wolves.
  • I absolutely love this place! The tour guides are extremely nice and knowledgeable and the wolves are gorgeous and well taken care of. I highly recommend the tours, especially the full moon tour!
  • Great organization. The price is definitely worth it to see wolves and wolf-dog hybrids up close while supporting a non-profit whose volunteers really care about the animals they are helping.
