The trip to Lakota rendered me speechless. The wolves are not only beautiful but majestic animals. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and thorough in their explanations about the wolves. At one point, the wolves howled on queue. I almost cried. If you love animals, or...More

Long hike up (which was nice for us) but there is often a shuttle available. Good & interesting presentation on the wolves, foxes & bobcats, but no un-obstructed view. The main point to see the wolves can get a bit crowded, but you are guaranteed...More

The word "Lakota" translates into a few words: allied, feeling affection, friendly and united. Those are perfect words to describe the 'air' around the wolf packs when I was recently on a photography tour at the preserve. The ease and communication while making the reservation,...More

How long do you have at each enclosure? If I can get down there I would like to shoot both video and photos. Is there room for tripod use on the private photo tours?

I don't advise a stroller. Viewing areas are not paved, only gravel & dirt (mud in that season).
