Stopped here for a quick visit. Listened to the very knowledgeable owner speaking about the wolves. Took a short stroll around to see the other animals. Nice area for small, easy hikes. Glad we stopped.
Visited here recently, and was very sad that I didn't have more time to spend. So many beautiful animals and so much to learn about them. There are trails to hike also, which meander through wood and meadow, so seeing some animals in their natural...More
This was a decent place to visit, probably better with children. It was a little bit of a downer for us. We understand that the primary purpose of this refuge is to return injured animals to the wild and thus their "rescue" area in not...More

AS long as the dog is not aggressive, and you have full control over it, you're fine. It's hard to predict which dogs the wolves will like, as they respond to smell and demeanor, so the only drawback is that if the wolves react aggressively, you won't want to have the dog near their enclosure, as it will distract from your enjoyment of the facility. There are plenty of trails at the Refuge, so even if the dog doesn't work out near the wolves, you could just place the dog in the car, for that part of your visit. Steve
Good for all ages. It is in a very natural setting in the woods and not too large. Maybe Steve will walk in the woods with you and the wolves!!! This is quite a place. Where appropriate clothing and shoes for being in the... More
