  • Amazing experience. Wasn't expecting to see the wolves so close! 50 minute guided tour went by WAY too fast, but was informative and entertaining. Each wolf has a story, and I could have listened to them all. Was lucky enough to hear a howl during my visit, and that alone was worth the trip. Wow. Breathtaking. I would suggest leaving extra time for the drive (my party was 10 minutes late for our tour and they kindly let us join anyway). Easy to find thanks to good signage.
  • Great experience, got to hear the wolves howl. My daughter loves wolves and this was the highlight of her 6th birthday. The guides were super friendly and knowledgeable, and the gift shop and walking trails were perfect.
  • Wolf Haven is an amazing place that houses wolves for breeding programs as well as as rehabilitation and re-release preparation. It's a sanctuary and not a zoo and is therefore a privilege to be around the wolves! The tour guides are super nice & knowledgeable, and the scenery nearby is gorgeous!
  • When I visited WOLF HAVEN, I was confused. The tour was informative. I believe I only saw 2 yards with wolves that were visible. The tour guide stressed the importance of the welfare of the wolves being the only real concern of this organization. Wolves first, then other animals welfare, and last and least is people. I could totally support this place 100 percent IF THAT WAS TRUE. The guide talked about how far wolves roamed in the wild. Also talked about a wolf dog that was a former pet seeked attention of humans because thats all he knew. In the same breath the guide said that the volunteers DO NOT hae hands on contact. Ok if the well being of the wolf is most important, I would think they WOULD give that wolf the attention he craved and NEEDED. He did come to the fence when we walked by and he looked miserable, lonely and longing to be petted like he had been all his life until now. Also I found their motto of wolves first and people last not so true. The picinic area for the people to hang out in was larger than the quarter aker fenced inclosures the sets of wolves had. Im sure with out any doubts that they mean well, I know it must cost lots of money to run the place. Having people come visit is a great way to educate, and gather supporters for their cause. I think they lost the whole concept of wolves first when they made the place more people friendly and less wolf natural.
  • My family was in town for a visit It rained and although tour was scheduled for 20 people, ended up it was just the 3 of us. Very informative without forgetting who the stars of the tour were . Erin was awesome! Let us ask many questions while walking. And right at the end of the tour, they started howling! Just awesome!
