Lakota Wolf Preserve

Reviewed By xraysta - Tinton Falls, NJ

First, if you miss the shuttle be prepared to hike straight up steep and muddy inclines to arrive at your destination. The destination is a fenced in area that houses very cool wolves, bobcats and foxes. That's it folks. You pay a sizable fee, used to support the preserve, to see a bunch of animals behind fences. We were disappointed that we could not walk through the preserve or get a closer look at these beautiful creatures. In addition, the staff is VERY rude and inflexible. They do NOTHING to make your stay more pleasant and if you are relying on donations to support your facility it may be a good idea to treat your guests with respect and kindness.

I haven't skied in almost eight years so I rented equipment and took a lesson. It was ideal for getting up and going constantly, I learned very quickly and easily with their slopes providing quality challenges. The bar area was nice enough but it's a sort of 'ski in ski out' location. Don't come for atmosphere, come to be on your feet the whole time

Pocono Snake and Animal Farm

Celebrating our 46th year delighting children and adults alike with our unique animal and reptile facility. Everyone will enjoy this face-paced, compact and easy-to-do animal experience. Slow down and don't move too fast, or you'll miss some of our exhibits, like our featured 140-yr-old, 140 pound snapping turtle just around the corner from the admission booth. Our exciting private collection of live reptiles includes a Gaboon Viper, King Cobra, and many others. At our American Alligator pond you get to feed the gators in July and August(from a safe distance)! Visitors love purchasing food for the bear and monkeys(toss it to them and watch them catch it in midair!)and baby bottles for our pot-belly pigs and goats. Meet "Joey", the new baby wallaby we're raising, and our playful baby lemur is on view also. All in all, definitely a fun place to visit when you don't want to spend the day at a zoo!

We went during their annual harvest fest and it was amazing. My 21 month old daughter loved the animals and running around the farm. She really enjoyed the pony rides as well. The fresh baked cookies, bread and pretzels are a must. The beekeeper show for kids was also fun. They have great food, music and lots of fun things for kids to do and it was only a $10 admission fee wth kids under 3 free. They also have homemade ice cream, pickles, desserts etc. There is a shuttle from the parking lot to the farm as well.

Nice, peaceful place to walk through. Interesting rocks placed throughout park. We saw a turtle on our hike and enjoyed the pretty July day. There is a chapel and an interesting rock structure. Good place to take interesting photos for sure. It's odd that it is privately owned, I almost felt like I was on someone's property but I would definitely recommend it.

This is the second time we've paddled with EOW. Everyone is polite and knows what they're talking about. You can get a canoe anywhere- but you can't always find nice people who don't mind answering questions. They know everything there is to know about DWGNRA and are happy to help. I'll definately be back. Hopefully overnite canoe trip next time. Thanks!!

Hiked this with my two teenaged daughters and 9 year old son. They loved it. Great views of the river, a nice stream crossing towards the beginning and a bit of rock scrambling. Uphill all the way to the top. Grab a hiking stick at the trailhead, plenty of them have been left as this is also the trailhead for the Appalachian trail.
