  • I love bears and they seemed to be well taken care of. However, feel sorry for them in such small area.  more »
  • This bear zoo is small. Seems family owned. They don’t take debit/credit cards but do have an atm. Admission is cheap and food trays are only $1.00. The bears are caged but the cages were very clean. ...  more »
  • You are not allowed to pet or feed the baby bear any longer :( so we were kinda upset about that but other than that a fun little stop for the family  more »

  • Nice staff! Fun place! The bears were lazy but one of them was catching the food we were throwing in its mouth! Loved feeding the goats. The monkey showed us its teeth and made a funny face lol. Well worth it! Admission is cheap too, I believe it was like $6.00 per person
  • Staff is amazing!! Facilty very clean and animals are extremely happy! They might even do a couple of tricks if you ask nicely. Money very well spent with entry only $6. I have a hard to please 14 year girl and she loved every minute!
  • We visit here at least one or two times every year. We love it. The animals are well taken care of and the staff is very friendly and helpful with any questions we may have.
  • Was pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed everything about it. Everything was clean and attendants were awesome
  • Loved it! All kinds of animals. Prices we're awesome. Will definitely go back!

Where to stay in Cherokee

Cherokee has no shortage of hotels, motels, and inns. Accommodations range from basic and affordable to lavish and extremely expensive. A towering casino downtown offers many rooms, but rustic cabins and cottages are more characteristic of the area. These places offer mountain views as well as fully equipped kitchens and in-room fireplaces and hot tubs. If you wish to explore the Great Smoky Mountains on your own terms, consider one of the area's campgrounds. Most are full-service, featuring both trailer and tent sites as well as hot showers, electric hookups, and on-site grocery stores.
