    When we got there, there were two bears out. The one never came down from behind the rocks. We read the signs which were somewhat interesting, but we got there after the intern had just finished talki...  more »

    Yes, it is small. But employees will be really big trouble. The stories of the bear are sad, and the fact that they can spend a pleasant evening of life in the encounter, is good. I saw the story of a bear like throwing snowballs at the audience and also twice made love to live. I was very surprised how close you got to the bears.

    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.

    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.
