Bearizona Wildlife Park, Williams

4.5
An animal sanctuary where local species roam free, Bearizona Wildlife Park provides wild encounters with bears, wolves, and birds of prey. You'll find access to the surrounding forest via a well-maintained gravel road. Animals may run out into the road, so drive slowly and keep your windows closed. Walkers can stroll through Fort Bearizona to view baby animals before they are released into the open park. Consider taking in a show near the fort. Trained birds of prey exhibit their wingspan and hunting capability, or you can view an otter feeding. Join the Wild Ride VIP Bus Tour for a guided journey behind the scenes and close-up introduction to animals. The VIP tours are available on a first come, first served basis.

  • This was OK, but not worth the money. A few animals, but nothing special. Not even many bears.. as the name suggests!  more »
  • I have memories of going to one of these places in Colorado as a kid, so I wanted to take mine. They had a great time in the park driving through and then doing the walking park. Very cool place to se...  more »
  • Both the drive thru and walk through were excellent. The bird of prey show was great. The kids loved feeding the otters. If going to the south rim with the family I would say this is a must stay.  more »

  • This is a wonderful family place to stop at if your passing through town. I would not make the drive just to see, essentially, a zoo. I love the unique "drive through" option. You can drive through a section of the park as many times as you'd like or skip it all together and go to the walking trail. I would recommend doing both because you will see a wide variety of animals. On the walking trail, there was a variety of exhibits. None really too special or that stood out to me. The animals are quite use to vistors and will not hesitate to walk up to the edge of the exhibits. The gift shop (which is after the drive, before the walking trail) is adorably themed with outdoors and bears. It is surprisingly fair-priced. The staff is extremely friendly and prepared in case there is a problem on the driving trail. I love this park and would definitely come back year after year with my family!
  • This is an awesome way to see some animals up close without being in danger. The closest you would ever want to get to a wolf or a bear. There are also other animals in the zoo part that are cool to see. Few hours of entertainment for all ages. My only complaint is that it was too small. I wished there were more animals.
  • It was a 2 1/2 hour to 3 hour drive from Phoenix. It was worth the drive. Part of the park is drive through where the animals have free roam within the fenced in enclosures. The wolves circled the cars sniffing at them, but didn't stop traffic. However, we got boxed in by the Big Horn sheep and it took a while for us to leave their enclosure. No damage was done to our car, but the park is not responsible for any damage done to cars. There is a walking park with animal exhibits as well.
  • Great value! I was hesitant to go at first, as t looked a little hoky, but I was pleasantly surprised. Exhibits are roomy and well-designed, with animal enrichment provided. It is small and can be seen fairly quickly, but I highly recommend their free flight raptor show.
  • Super fun, super easy place to visit. The bird show was the best. If you enjoy it that much they will apply what you paid towards the annual pass (At least when we visited in March 2018). It's at least a must see.
