We had our first visit over the summer. Absolutely loved the experience. My mom loved listening to the wolves howling and had always told me to go. She passed away three years ago so visiting reminded me of her.

I have always loved wolves, and when I came across their website I knew I had to visit them one day. We ended up going to Wolf Park on our honeymoon. We loved it and I hope that we are able to go back on our 25th which is in 7 years.

Great place to learn about the Wolf. I had the pleasure to sponsor a wolf a little while ago and had the experience of a lifetime to be able to visit with the pack. The memory will never be forgotten.

I have visited Wolf Park with my family, and subscribe to their regular updates. The care and resources that they devote to the animals who reside there is simply amazing, and the events that they coordinate are always both enlightening and a blast to attend! From the Howl Nights where guests can howl along with the wolf pack, the Bison Demonstrations where the wolves mock hunt the herd of bison, to the Holiday events where the wolves are provided with treats like pumpkins or turkeys to play with/devour, the team at Wolf Park is always going above and beyond in their work with these animals.

My family and I have watched many generations of wolves at this wonderful facility. There are so many lies being spread about these amazing animals. This place is a treasure, because it tells people the truth.

Wolves are a part of our lives. The Creator put them here and we learn from Wolves and all other wildlife he created as well. Shame on all of you trophy hunters. We don't like you.

The wonderful and dedicated staff that work with the wolves make it a pleasure to visit their website as well as their facebook page. I live in South Africa where we do not really have wolves and I've been visiting their website for more than 10 years now (since the days of the late Tristan and Marion et al) and I've always been so impressed with them and the work that they do. I totally love the pictures of Monty Sloan. Great organisation!

Both my daughter and I have sponsored wolves at Wolf Park. After you attend a special training session you can go in with your wolf (with a highly trained Wolf Park Staffer also.) If your wolf isn't feeling sociable, they will take you in with another. It's an awesome experience for a wolf lover. I actually was kissed by my wolf Ayla! Even if you can afford to sponsor a wolf It's still a wonderful place to visit. The people there are friendly and very knowledgeable. This is not just a tourist trap - the people there really love wolves and have studied them for years and want to share all they have learned about these beautiful animals.

Not only are the staff at Wolf Park very knowledgeable about the candids at the park, they are also incredibly dedicated to caring for the animals and educating the public about them. No where else can you find a great team, who teaches about candid behavior and the management and socialization of captive wolves, while the public experiences the animals up close and personal.

We took our two children to Wolf Park this spring and it went above and beyond my expectations. We planned on visiting and seeing some animals and having a good time but the staff was so knowledgeable and really new the animals on a personal level. We were part of a tour that the park does many times a day, in which they walk the guests around the park and teach them about the wildlife that they have on the grounds. They don't just point and introduce us to the animals, they teach us. They explain the actions animals in the wild as well in captivity, they teach us new facts that aren't as well known and they inform us of the impact humankind is having on their natural environment. This was such an amazing experience that we even went back that evening for Howl Night and we learned even more about these amazing animals. We can't wait to go back and we are now planning our next visit.
