“Worth the visit and tour”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Please take the tour. Hosts are well informed about the species and take pride in this facility and what it does. Very educational. Just to look at one of these beautiful creatures face-to face and up close is moving. This is not a zoo nor a theme park. It is an educational and support center for the benefit of wolves.

Went to Wolf Haven last year and totally enjoyed it. The guides were very informative. I have lived in the area for years and can't believe I have never been here. I recommend this to EVERYONE!

“Nice place to take your family”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

This was an unexpected joy on our recent Spring Break trip. We enjoyed learning about and seeing the wolfs. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative. We learned a lot about why people should not have pet wolfs or breed them with dogs. The gift shop was nice also. If you are in the area I recommend this place especially if you have children.

“A Day with the Wolves”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

We had a group of about 15 people of all ages and I didn't hear one bad review all day. The guide was very fun and full of knowledge and very eager to answer our many questions, you could tell he loved being there. The place is a bit hard to find but our GPS had no trouble finding the location. Could use a few signs on the road though. The walk in the field and thru the cemetary is well worth the time.

“Watch Out For The Stragglers”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

The attraction is located a bit off the beaten path so a map would be handy for those visiting from outside the immediate area.The guide instructed us before we started the tour that we should stay together in a tight group, "because wolves are predatory and large groups are intimidating to them, whereas stragglers are vulnerable." Needless to say, none of us wanted to be a "straggler" so we followed on the heels of the guide in lock-step through the gate into the unknown all the while casting about nervous glances. Ah, but it was all in vain. It's not a free roaming compound for wolves as I had first anticipated. It's not a zoo either. It's a place that primarily maintains a wolf population that have fallen upon hard times and/or unfortunate circumstances. Essentially it's a series of high fenced enclosures within the main compound, each containing several wolves. They are not allowed together in a pack. So much for picking off wandering junior, although a foolish individual sticking his hand through the wire mesh might wish he hadn't. The tour was short in distance, but interesting. It's worth an afternoon visit and the admission is for a good cause.
