  • Let me start off by saying that some people may not like this place if they never take time to find out its purpose. This encounter is home to five grizzlies that had no place else to go where they wo...  read more »

  • Small park but friendly and knowledgeable staff. Very clean enclosures and animals are well cared for. Moderately priced (usually places like this are very expensive). Easy to access (right off the interstate). Beautiful setting. Worth the stop.
  • Seeing the Bears and talking to the boy from Austin, TX that is working there for the summer was awesome. He was so nice and told us so much about the Bears there. The other ladies weren't as friendly and didn't seem as interested talking with us. We had hoped to maybe see Casey Anderson as we are big fans and came all this way to see this place and was met with a little attitude and annoyance when I asked about him. Kinda disappointed but still glad we got to see the Bears.
  • Really nice seeing the grizzlies in this park, and they were all rescued. The staff was very knowledgeable as well
  • Had a great time, today! So awesome to see Brutus.
  • My family went here a few years ago and had the best time. We loved seeing Lucy and Brutus and the other bears. It was amazing to be so close to them. The staff was amazing as well. Must stop and see. Sorry to hear Lucy died tho...
