Tupper Lake Wild Center Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Explore 81 acres (33 hectares) of New York open space at Tupper Lake's Wild Center, an indoor/outdoor science center running by Adirondack Park. Between five indoor exhibits and miles of open trails, you'll learn everything you need to know about the area's natural surroundings. Head to Big Wolf Great Hall inside the center for one of its daily wildlife shows, where you'll see live animals like ravens, porcupines, owls, and snakes. Outside, you can weave through the treetops and visit a four-story tree-house along the elevated Wild Walk walking path for incredible views of the forest.
For a more immersive experience, sign up for a free, guided hike through the trails or ride a canoe down the Raquette River for an extra fee. You can also man the trails on your own. Hike the Living River Trail to pass a running waterfall and the park's resident otters, and don't forget about the complimentary snowshoes if it's icy out there.

The Wild Center is a great place to explore the Adirondacks. We have been going here for years and there is always something new. The price has gone up quite a bit so we will probably make this a once every few years kind of trip. It was very busy on a Saturday so we missed some of the exhibits.

We had so much fun here lots of hands on things to do, really enjoyed the walk among the trees plus we were able to visit with family. This is must see for all ages. I was worried about the walk and climbing for myself but I had no problems what so ever, and would like to go back. Very amazing.
