Tripadvisor reviews were once again spot on- educational and interesting enough to keep the kids off their electronic devices- for a while at least! Very memorable experience- the animals are beautiful, the owners are exceptional teachers and the chance to hear the eerie wolfpack howl is worth the price of admission.

Lakota Wolf Preserve is an interesting diversion in western New Jersey. These people are passionate about the wolves, and they know their stuff. There are different varieties of wolves in the enclosures, and the commentary is very informative. They also have bobcat and foxes on the property as part of the tour. Check the times and call ahead on weekdays.... More

This place is amazing! The animals are beautiful and well cared for, The staff members are genuine and you can tell they really care about these animals and the shrinking habitats for all of Americas wildlife. I highly recommend a visit and tour if you are anywhere near this preserve.

Wonder experience. Very educational! The owners are extremely knowledgeable and kind! I wish there was adult tours and children tours though because the children can be really loud during the presentation but it really didn't affect the quality of the talk. I learned a lot about foxes, bobcats and wolves! I can't wait to go back!

First off, I did not do the tour but I checked the place out in advance for elderly guests. The road to the preserve can be steep but it does handle plenty of Rvs. I imagine it can be icy in winter, so take care. I believe the reviews are accurate that this is an amazing place, but there are... More

Lakotawolf, Owner at Lakota Wolf Preserve, responded to this review

thank you for the 5 star review but Seems kind of unfair to write a review at all, when all you did was drive by? if it was a weekday yes we do class trips for schools so there could have been kids there. we are not going to turn away someone if their hair is pink! Weekdays are also... More

The animals are well kept in some of the largest and well thought out natural Enclosures I have ever seen. The owners an very nice and very informative. They are also very good public speakers. Nothing is more uncomfortable then listening to a talk from nervous public speakers. Great for the whole family or even an impromptu day date .

My fiancé and I went to the preserve this afternoon, and it was awesome. The wolves, foxes, and bobcats are beautiful. The animals were very playful and attentive to their audience. You can tell they are well cared for. Hearing them howl at the end of the tour was awe inspiring. The owners were very knowledgeable. It was a fun... More

Went to the Lakota Wolf Preserve for the 1st time today (11/15/15). Had a great time. The tour was very informative and the sounds of all the wolves in unison was a very spiritual experience. Wolves are amazing partners on our planet. Smart, intelligent and beautiful. Totally recommend this venue if you like animals, nature conservation and beauty.

Lakota Wolf Preserve is a treasure to visit. It is located in Taylor Campground and you take a short bus ride back to the preserve. They have four enclosures for the different species of wolves they have. The tour guide gives a great talk about the different wolves. There is an option for photographers to get close to the wolves... More
