Gated access to the camping areas. Sometimes keys and locks are "finicky" we were told. First key did not work, second gave us trouble. Showers are $1 at base camp where the only comfort station is. Two shower stalls and one toilet on each side for men and women. Trails are plentiful however most do not loop and there is... More

We booked for three nights and the canopy tour for my daughters birthday and unfortunately the weather sucked but the people made it ok. We were actually all geared up for the canopy tour and the lighting storm started and the guides were well prepared for it and we were perfectly kept calm and they used their radio and base... More

The canopy walk was really fantastic. The tour guides were professional friendly and informative. The canoe ride was beautiful and added to the sense of occasion. I am nervous about heights but the safety precautions eliminated any fears. The walk therefore became fun and the views really good. The on site restaurant was welcome and reasonable value.

We wanted to visit this reserve for a long time and it was worth it. The wolves are viewed via one-way glass as to not disturb them. We were fortunate the day of our visit to the reserve as the wolves were active and nearby the viewing platform. It was very interesting to hear information from the staff regarding the... More

Great place to view wolves in a natural habitat. A very unique experience. Nicely set up and well run.

We went to the Wolf Centre at the Halliburton Forest and while it was neat to see the wolves up-close and personal, it was also very sad to see them in such a small enclosure. They say that the wolves have 15 acres but by the looks of things when we were there, they are kept in a much smaller... More

Having just squandered $254.25 on one night's accommodation in Camboose 2 at Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve I can promise you my family will never return there in any season. The opportunity to view live wolves was worth the trip up from Toronto. We received the family rate of $25 for three people and were able to see six of... More

This is a really interesting place. Privately owned but feels like a provincial/national park. Friendly staff and lots to do (or not do). Logging Museum is good for a short visit as it gives you a window into what the place was like a hundred years ago. Restaurant has good food. Camp store has good ice cream. Items can be... More

We visited the Wolf Sanctuary in the Haliburton Forest. Even the drive to the Haliburton Forest was breathtaking. Such a gorgeous place.
