One of our favourite places to visit!

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... read more

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.

I camp here with my family for 8 nights every summer. It is our favorite place to unwind with a relaxed camping experience for the whole family. The fishing is good, there are endless logging roads to explore, there is the Wolf Sanctuary, and so much more. It is a nice departure from the overcorwded Provincial Park scene.

Spent the morning at the Wolf Center in the Haliburton Forest. Awesome visit as 3 new wolf pups were born this year! They just emerged from the den a few weeks ago, and they were so fascinating to watch. The center is very educational and informative. Highly recommend.

Even though it was my idea, I was pretty nervous about doing this tour, and was afraid I'd chicken out at the last minute. However, I plucked up my courage and stepped onto the first bridge. Soon I relaxed and enjoyed being up in the treetops. Alexis and Cameron took my husband and me, the Schlumpenfelds, on this adventure, driving... More

Have been here numerous times with my kids and their friends. From the Wolf enclosure, to the fishing. To Kashe the Moose. Everything about this place is great for the outdoor enthusiast. Love coming here

During the March school break, my wife and I, together with our 13-year-old son, rented snowmobiles at the Reserve. Part of the rental fee included a snowmobile safety helmet. The friendly staff provided us with instructions on how to operate a snowmobile and gave us a detailed trail map, recommending which trails we should try as beginners. Despite the fact... More

Haliburton Wildlife has snow earlier than many surrounding trails, but it's pricey and can be busy. I enjoy it for an early sled ride but won't go more than once a year. The onsite restaurant is pretty good - no complaints. The trail-side warming huts are a nice feature but are often full of smokers/drinkers. The drinking in the park... More
