    Well worth the drive to the sanctuary. Saw so many bears and learned about the origin of the sanctuary. Bus ride to platform was so simple and platform give great view of the bears.  more »

    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!!

    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.
