Wolf Lake is located in southern Yukon, Canada, near Teslin. The lake is surrounded by tundra and wooded lowlands and mountains. In 1998 the Yukon government issued the Protected Areas Strategy including Wolf Lake as a protected area. They found the plan for a national park had strong support but some disapproval as some feared the park would interfere with tradition. Wolf River is the main outflow from Wolf Lake, draining into Teslin lake.
The community of Wolf Lake is located on the eastern shore of the lake. The pack formed when small family-packs started banding together, and now it's one of the biggest packs in North America.
