We visited the wolf center today.. We were disappointed. I found the brochure misleading. We expected to have interaction with the animal but instead just seen 6 wolves in two small cages . There information was thought provoking but again we found the brochure very misleading. I understand there cause but don't think I need to pay $35 to hear it.

I am sure that the proprietors have the best of intentions, but this wolf centre is just wolves in tiny cages, blocked from view by chain-linked fences. It was a very sad and depressing experience. Obviously, wolves need more room than that. Spend your time and money by visiting the buffalo ranch a short distance away.

Probably only way to see wolves inthe area. Great facility and lovely animals. We got to see them eat which was fascinating.

This was a great learning experience for me and my wife. We learned all about wolves and how the Canadian Government is killing them off.

We also got to hear (and see) them howl. It was amazing! It's worth the price of admission ($12 for adults). It's a great centre where you know they spend the money on the wolves and not on making the place look lavish. It's a very humble place.

Its a small venue which surprised us. Costly to get in but extremely informative display boards and the wolves seemed content enough. Over zealous guide giving the talk put us off a bit, think you could've worked out most if the information yourself from the boards and wasn't keen on his joy at the audience guessing incorrectly to his questions. The owner seemed rather more interesting and genuine. Stays open until 7pm in the summer, which was a good time to visit. Very cute puppies.
