Three Bears General Store, Pigeon Forge

4.0
In addition to a wide selection of specialty goods, foods, and souvenirs, Three Bears General Store offers you the chance to help feed its resident black bears. The two-story shop sells a variety of knick-knacks and gifts for visitors of all ages and tastes, including an array of jams, preserves, puppets and dolls, home decor items, and jewelry. Be sure to try some of the famous fudge and explore the hot sauce selection. However, don't forget the real showstoppers: the five black bears living in the on-site habitat. Check feeding times before you go, as you'll only be able to join in during specified hours.

    Of course this is a touristy kind of store but they have lots of fun things. Great fudge and local items as well. Certainly worth the stop and look. Warning, if you try the fudge you will buy some :-)

    I liked this store and its prices along with everything it sells. It also has an arcade upstairs. The reason I give two stars is the way the bears are run. I just hope the owner sees this and listens. I know the bears in their are well fed and kept up. But I personally feel like they should have somewhere to play or at least some grass to lay in.

    A place you must visit while in the Smokies! Kids loved the bears, it was feeding time, but one was very active and was pacing around and posing for the cameras. The store is amazing and has everything you could ever think of and MORE!

    Wonderful fudge brought some home for friends and family. So many items to look at ran out of time and didn't get through half the store or even upstairs. Will be going back.
