What a neat place to go! We reserved spots on a Thursday tour. There were more people than I expected, but there was plenty of room along the tour to see the wolves and hear the guide. Dennis was our guide and was full of information. He was an amazing guide who knows all about the wolves and each of... More

I visited the sanctuary with my young niece for the Tuesday 10am tour. I read on the website to purchase tickets in advance to ensure entrance. I really appreciated the number of volunteers present (the sanctuary is 100% volunteers and operates only on ticket sales and donations) and their very obvious appreciation of the animals they care for. Our guide... More

Amazing animals to see up close and to learn about them. Volunteer staff are very knowledgeable. Be prepared as there is quite a bit of walking and some up fairly steep terrain. The whole family came away with fun tidbits of information on a very beautiful animal.

We have been to the Wolf Sanctuary several times, so we decided to try the full moon tour. I tried to research to be prepared. However, maybe I can give some good advice to help others. First off, be prepared for lots of people. They do have you park way up on top of the hill but thankfully, they provide... More

Thank you for visiting us for the Full Moon Tour! Please allow us to address a few of your concerns. The Full Moon tour promptly ends at 10PM in consideration of both our volunteers and the wolves. Our tour program is run entirely by volunteers and many of them travel considerable distances to come help out for the duration of... More

Have taken the tour several times. Never disappoints. Heartwarming to see these at risk wolves being taken care of by a caring staff and volunteers. Would highly recommend for family outing as well as a friends or couple's outing.

First time visiting the Sanctuary, was a little disappointed that some sections of the sanctuary were blocked off to the full moon tours. The entertainment cancelled for our evening at the sanctuary but we still had the bon fire. I thought the wolves were amazing but thought a little over priced considering no entertainment and sections being blocked off from... More

Thank you for visiting for the Full Moon Tour! During the Full Moon Tour event, the self-guided tour allows guests access to all of the same areas that the daytime public tours have access, including the optional hill towards the end of the tour. The areas that may have been blocked off during your tour are also restricted during the... More

And now for something totally different. If you're in the Lancaster area, don't miss this amazing wolf sanctuary. You'll make 45 new friends and learn something about an endangered species. The guides are truly knowledgeable. You won't have to walk more than about 75 yards tops to see various dens, from a lone wolf to a pack of ten. Watch... More

My wife is basically an Animal lover. It is a long-standing joke in the family that she loves all of them - lions and tigers and bears... :) but she adores wolves! I found out about the Wolf Sanctuary by an accident surfing the internet looking for a suitable present for her birthday. One look at what they had to... More

My husband and I traveled over an hour to take our two grandsons to the wolf sanctuary. We arrived on Sunday around noon only to find the gate closed and no way to enter the grounds. We called and the person, unapologetically, said there were no tours other than at 10:00 that morning. I missed that fact when I had... More

Thank you for your interest in our tours. We are always working to improve the clarity of the information we present on our webpage and we apologize if there was any confusion on our tour times. Our site does indicate that our tour times change during different months, a policy which directly benefits the wolves since tour times are scheduled... More
