Cocolalla, Idaho: Wolf People: Hang Out With Wolves (Closed)

The wolf pack at Wolf People numbers over 20. Some hang out in the gift shop. The rest are back in the woods. Feedings are three times a week; Wolf People offers tours of their habitat and a "picture pen." Closed by 2016.

On the east side of US 95, either 10 miles south of the bridge just south of Sandpoint, or 30.5 miles north of I-90 exit 12. Just north of milepost 461. Look for the big hand-and-pawprint logo on the front of their gift shop.

Wolf People - Hang Out With Wolves

Tours are not available until further notice; call or check the website ( to verify. The Wolf People are still able to care for the wolves, but travelers are not able to go on tours and are not able to view or play with the wolves. There was a legal issue with the Idaho Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, and the owner seems devastated and is trying to bring the tours back.

Only the gift shop is open, which does have fun wolf-related souvenirs, and the people there are able to provide education about wolves in general.

We've visited the gift shop a few times and once were allowed to hold six-week-old wolf cubs! Very memorable experience.

My daughter and I stopped at the gift shop a few years ago and were able to hold eight-week old wolf cubs! Very memorable!

Wolf People - Hang Out With Wolves

Can't see the wolves at this location. The wildlife and fish people (don't remember the name) won't allow it. They are fighting it. For now you can go on the tour to see them, at 11 am and 2 pm. I did not go on the tour so I can't speak to it. They guy I talked to here was really nice. There is still the store and educational part of it.

The wolf handler who guided us was informative and told great stories! At the end of the tour, the handler led a "howling" -- he started it and the whole pack followed. It was a fun family experience!
