  • This small but wonderful place shows Grizzly bears in their natural habitat. I visited Jake and Maggi. Jake was happy to pose for photos. The guide was very informative and helpful. I enjoyed my visit and education. Bears are treated very well in a natural setting. Recommend this place for people of all ages. I visited on May 10, 2017.
  • 5 grizzly bears in close encounter. Really worth it before or after Yellowstone trip. Staffs are extremely friendly and helpful!
  • Small but worth it :) one large viewing area with 2 pools for the bears to swim in, rocks and logs to play with. Active/playful bears even in mid-day. Great experience :) only bad thing was not enough shade for the guests.
  • Bears are well taken care of. Great viewing area
  • Somewhat anti-climactic. Perhaps this city boy expected more than watching some bears lay around in the sun and then eat yougurt from a cup. Like many side of the road attractions, you cant see anything until you're inside, and thats the way they like it. Would I pay again to go? No. Am I glad I went? not really. Was it worth it? Probably not. Did my kids enjoy it? Somewhat. You only live once, go and see the grizzlies.
