Wolf Park is an education, conservation, and research facility located in Battle Ground, Indiana. Since 1972, we have studied wolves and other wild canids to learn more about their behavior and assist researchers in the wild. Each year, we teach thousands of visitors about the importance of predators in the ecosystem. We assist researchers around the world with studies of subjects including cognition, behavior, and comparative studies between wild and captive animals.


Spots still available for our “Day with Wolf Park Ambassadors”! You will not only meet some of our ambassadors, but also spend the day learning about park history, ethology, and more! Reserve your place now on our website linked in bio under Programs > Workshops ...

Whether you are a dog owner, animal trainer, behavior consultant, or simply a dog lover, Wolf Park’s May 1st virtual seminar “Dog is Love, Wolf is Wild” has something to offer everyone.

Dr. Clive Wynne, Wolf Park’s research director, will be sharing scientific approaches to behavior that help humans and dogs live more successful lives with each other as well as his discoveries of the differences between wolves and dogs. Any day that includes observing wolves and attending presentations by one of the leading experts in canine science sounds like a good day to us.

CEUs are available through CCPDT and IAABC. The seminar recording will be available for two weeks. Learn more and register on our website linked in bio under Programs > Seminars

We would like to introduce our new Visitor's Center! Our former Gift Shop has now been renovated into a center where not only you can pick up some Wolf Park gear, but you'll be able to take the time to speak with our staff on programs such as Memberships and Sponsorships!

Our Visitor's Center hours are as follows:

Sunday-Friday 9:30am-2:30pm ET
Saturday 9:30am-9pm ET

These times are only for the Visitor's Center. To enter the park, you must have a reservation for a tour, program, or event in advance unless otherwise stated. To make a reservation, visit our website linked in bio

Join us on May 1st for our "Dog is Love, Wolf is Wild" Virtual Seminar with Dr. Clive Wynne.

In this virtual seminar, Dr. Wynne will discuss the latest discoveries in canine science and will explore why wolves and dogs are distinctly different across many realms. Participants will gain an appreciation of how a dog’s heart (capacity for affection) rather than its smarts made it so successful in a human-dominated world. CEUs are available through CCPDT and IAABC!

It is a great place!

I went to Wolf Park with a group of 32 and the staff was very friendly with accommodating us. It is a great place for group or family visits, try to go for the whole 3 hours on the days they have events going on. There are many wolves, foxes, and bison that you can see.

Nature at its Best

This is a wonderful alternative to animal watching. The park's involvement with wolves is to be admired. Personnel are knowledgeable and the wolves are so very special. Our grandchildren love this place. The night programs are especially fun!

Great Experience!

Great experience to bring the family to. The guide was super knowledgeable and made the whole experience allot of fun. We got to give ice treats to the pups and everyone had a good experience and learned about wolves and foxes.

Amazing, Educational and Beautiful

A group of us visited in the afternoon for the tour, then came back in the evening for the howl. Highly recommend doing both, as the information and experiences are different and both are amazing. The social behavior of the wolves is complicated and deserves the study this facility is doing. The social attitude of people towards wolves (usually negative) would change if they understood all the wolves contribute to the ecosystem.
