The reserve pretty much has it all for outdoor enthusiasts; snowmobiling in the winter, dog sledding, a walk among the tree tops and bike trails. And then there is the Wolf Centre, a wonderful place to observe and photograph the wolves.There are also interesting meeting facilities.

The attendent was kind enough to warn us that there hadn't been any sightings so we opted out of paying the $12 each

This was the highlight of a recent trip to Canada. The forest is stunning. So many lakes and so much scenery. If you like the great outdoors then this is for you. I did the canopy walk which was really lovely. Strolling through the trees is just great and requires little work physically. You stop of on a platform for... More

We were so thrilled to see 7 adult wolves and two pups who were only 10 weeks old. They were adorable. Staff were terrific. Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Easy to locate. Can't wait for a return visit in the winter. Thank you very much.

We attended this location primarily to see the wolves in captivity....living on many acres in their natural environment. The cost was $12 / person, but we believed it was reasonable for what we were able to see. The museum itself is quite small, with a portion set aside for souvenirs. It was not elaborate by any means, but we were... More

My wife and I recently went to Costa rica and did hanging bridges then went last weekend to haliburton forest. By far, haliburton forest was superior for quality, interest, knowledge of guides, professionalism and overall good time. We definitely recommend it for a wonderful day!

They were kind and attentive. Cameron was great at explaining the different elements of the forest and trees. We all had a wonderful time. The youngest member of our... More

I only used the museum and viewing area with family and friends. The person who greeted us behind the counter was named Mike and he was very kind and attentive. There were two families and they gave both of ours the "Family" rate, which was $25. Mike actually used an 125+ year old cash register who was very, very cool.... More
