There's also a place called great wolf lodge in Virginia but it has no real wolves.
Great Wolf Lodge isn't a wolf center. Its an amusement hotel/indoor waterpark/place where your money gets taken and you get really nothing because its not very good. As far as I know, they do nothing for wolves.
Yeah ive been to here not really sure why i included that.

I went there a year ago. Nothing to talk about, really. Kinda boring. The waterpark was pretty cool, though.

There is a wolf sanctuary in Lititz, Pennsylvania. It's called the Wolf Sanctuary of PA. I've been there twice, and it's pretty awesome to walk around the sanctuary.
I also just realized that Silverfang88 was there, too.
Anyways, the sanctuary guides talk about the wolf packs (there are two-four full wolf packs, I think) in the sanctuary. My favorite was the wolf pack with the tan/fawn wolves. Their alphas, especially the alpha male, whose name is Merlin, are very interesting. I also loved the adorable gray Scout, who's a really energetic male wolf in a wolf pack with gray and black wolves. He usually stuck his paws through the fence whenever the guides came toward him.
In conclusion, I really recommend visiting that sanctuary.
I've also been to Great Wolf Lodge in the Poconos, but it isn't really wolf-related, besides the name and mascots, which are two wolves and one raccoon. It's a good resort for kids, but unlike the name, it isn't wolf related.

Updated list and did some rough organizing. I'll be clarifying some things and re-organizing it later on, so if you have any suggestions, please feel free to comment.

There is a wolf sanctuary in NJ that I went to. It is called Lakota Wolf Preserve. They have Gray Wolves, Arctic Wolves, and British Columbian Wolves. They also have some foxes and bobcats but I don't know if that counts.

Anyone been to Wolf Hollow in Ipswich, MA? (it's on the list.)
I want to go really bad but it's quite a drive for me so I don't know if it's worth it or not.

I've been to the UKWCT (UK Wolf Conservation Trust) which is on the list and I'd recommend it to any person in the UK who is interested. They have people there to educate you about the animal and you can walk with them and go to 'Howl Nights' etc.

I'm just going to throw this out there in case it effects anything.

I live 15 minutes from the Ellen Trout Zoo in Lufkin, TX and they no longer have wolves. Skinny, malnourished lions, but no wolves.

I just thought of this, so I'll have to double check the list {and my research} but the zoo in Abilene has a big section on the town's wolf heritage, as grey wolves I believe {don't hold me to the breed} used to inhabit the land. I'm not sure if they actually have wolves now, but I do know they offer a diagram with their wolf history in Abilene.

edit. Abilene's Zoo website states that they have Maned wolves under their Conservation Program.

That's what I thought? I decided I'd post it anyway, since it listed it on their official site and my knowledge of Maned Wolves is not that great. x'D

There is a place near my house called Howling Woods Farm in New Jersey, they house Domestic-Bred Wolves, Wolfdogs, and Northern breeds. I don't know if it counts at all but they also host events to educate people about wolves and wolfdogs.

EDIT: There is also a zoo I went to in the Poconos and they have 3 Timber Wolves. It is called Paws and Claws Animal Park I believe.
