Hmmmmm

Not bad but the info at each stop needs to be a bit more accurate. The handout to keep track while touring was fun for the kids.

We go to Call of the Wild every visit to Gaylord. It's retro, a blast from the past for me since I spent a lot of summers up north. Now we take our granddaughter to Call of the Wild. So many animals to see. Nice gift shop also, friendly folks.

The children liked looking at all the animal that were there. They also liked the scavenger hunt for the animal and bear claw markings (which took awhile to find, but we finally found it). The staff was very friendly and the gift shop was nice.

Much cooler than I expected on the inside. Owner was nice and we shared a lot of history back and forth about the museum and such. Very pleased and impressed with the displays!

This is a very nice display of how animals live in the wild. It is a walk through at your own pace. Children love it as well as adults. Have stopped here for years when traveling in area. Nice large gift shop too. Friendly owners and staff. Highly recommend.

Children of all ages will enjoy a walk through Call of the Wild. It's been there for decades and is family owned and operated. I can remember my grandparents taking me there when I was young. Perfect stop for families with children who like to look at and learn about animals (note that all the animals are taxidermied).
