Don't miss this great find on the Delaware water gap. Stay nearby at Camp Taylor or just come for the day. Staff is friendly and informative and picture taking is a must.

Took the tour of the Lakota Wolf Preserve yesterday. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We learned so much about these beautiful animals. I definitely would love to return when my Grandchildren are a bit older.

Is it better to do the morning tour or the afternoon tour, in the winter? Which one is better for the wolves?

in the winter you will see just as much at either tour. summer time the morning tours are better because it is still cool out

How long do you have at each enclosure? If I can get down there I would like to shoot both video and photos. Is there room for tripod use on the private photo tours?

I don't advise a stroller. Viewing areas are not paved, only gravel & dirt (mud in that season).
