Nemacolin Woodlands Resort's Wildlife Academy is dedicated to providing interactive entertainment and live animal programs with an emphasis on education. With a large variety of animal species calling Nemacolin home, we are proud to welcome the newest member of our animal family, Stitch, a Pensillata Marmoset.

Some fun facts about Marmosets:
  • Smallest primate in the world.
  • Even when full grown a Marmoset will weigh less than a pound.
  • Marmosets are found in the Tropical Regions of the Americas.
  • Marmosets feed on plant exudate's such as gum, sap and resin, as well as an insectivore diet.

The Off-Road Driving Academy Is Back!


The Off Road Driving Academy At Nemacolin will be in full force this summer with the addition of the Jeep Rubicons! Operating daily for Instructional Series and Ride Alongs, these four door Rubicons are the most capable off-road vehicle to date at the Academy.

The Rubicons can tackle 40 degree side slopes and 60 degree inclines with ease. The vehicle is equipped with a rock track transfer case which allows the vehicle to go through rock gardens you wouldn’t dream of entering.

Our Instructional Series is geared toward teaching you the specifics of the vehicle and how to operate it safely in the field. The Rock Course at the Adventure Center that will allow you to get comfortable with how the vehicle handles rock crawls, side slopes, inclines, log crossings and water fording ponds. After each member has gone through the course, the rest of the time will be dedicated to driving on some of our 20+ miles of trails on property. The total duration of the trip lasts 1.5 hours and is offered at 9:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m and 3:30 p.m.

We also offer a Ride Along where one of our professional off-road drivers will navigate the vehicle through the Rock Course then out to the trails for a total trip time of 30 minutes. This trip is great for a family that wants to tour the property and get a little muddy while doing so. These trips are offered at 11:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

Take to the trails during your next Nemacolin visit. Our Off-Road Driving Academy is sure to treat the family with an experience you’ll never forget! Check out the video and see what I mean.
