We booked a VIP tour of the CWC in August 2012.
Although pricey for 5 of us, it was amazing being in the center with guide by ourselves, making for a personal visit.
Guide was excellent, and the visit was relaxed and low key, as this truly is conservation first.
Also great to stop off at Julian afterwards for award winning apple pie!

You must make reservations to visit the California Wolf Center near Julian, CA, sometimes the Center is closed due to weather. Buses, RVs and motorcycles are not permitted on the Wolf Center road at any time.

We watched a Power Point program on wolf education, conservation, research, and what the Center is doing to preserve them. Two huge wire enclosures held an impressive pack of Alaskan gray wolves and multiple packs of Mexican gray wolves. Seeing them up close and personal heightens interest in conserving wolves in the wild. I cannot remember if I have ever seen wolves in the wild anywhere other than Alaska. I saw two on various trips into Denali National Park.

Guided tour at a reasonable price. Not far (less than 1 mile from Pinezanita Campground, next to the KQ Campgrounds & 15 minutes from town, off Highway 79. Had a wonderful time and the tour was quite informative. There are areas that are closed to the public but other areas are open for viewing of wolves. The only minus - rough road to reserve! Visit their giftshop! Support!

Getting to see the demonstration wolves up close, hearing the story of how wolves have struggled to survive. Some of the wolves on the property were killed in a recent fire. An emotional and rewarding way to spend an afternoon.
