  • Fantastic Fantastic Fantastic!!! The bears were fun and easy to view with plenty of room for everyone. The interns and employees are awesome! We were travelling with our pooch so our plan was for my wife to go see the bears and I'd wait for her to return and then take my turn. One of the interns saw me waiting for my wife and out of the blue offered to watch my dog so I could go out there sooner!! WHAT AN AWESOME gesture!!! I would recommend a visit to anyone of any age.....it's super affordable too!!
  • Great place for a date, only cost a couple bucks to go to but well worth it if you're around the area
  • I remember going here when I was a kid when vince was alive, I remember petting the bears and seeing Duffy the big Bear ever!! Lol . I have kept the tradition alive and taken my kids several times now that it's a wildlife life sanctuary... totally awesome experience and memories!!!
  • Awesome place! Worth the drive. In the spring you get less bears there, but more cubs and adorable views. In the late summer there are tons of bears there bulking up for winter. Great education too.
  • This is the greatest place in the world for these bears..Friend of mine bought me here now i try to come come as often as i can..Every time i come i bring a new friend with us...I feel like the more people i tell about this place the more help the bears get and thats what this is about.
