Bearizona Wildlife Park, Williams

4.5
#1 of 8 in Parks in Williams
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Bearizona Wildlife Park by using our Williams road trip planner.

  • This park is beautiful. My girlfriend surprised me with a visit to Bearizona for the first time and I loved every part of the visit. The fort area where you can walk around was a cool experience in itself. Could see all of the animals, one of the bears was practically posing for pictures. The drive through portion is of course the coolest part and it didn't disappoint. Getting to see the bears and wolves so close while cruising through was a really amazing experience. There's lots of opportunities for cool photos here, plenty of cool wildlife to experience, and people of all ages should be able to have a memorable experience at Bearizona.
  • Very unique wildlife park. Drive your own vehicle through the park and have private fun with family. Or, take the bus tour and have some laughs with other nature and animal loving people. The bus tour guides offer in depth information on the animals, including, but not limited to: name, age, where they were rescued from, how long the park has had them, etc. If you find yourself in the William's, AZ area and have a few hours of free time, check out the park. You will not be disappointed. In fact, I recommend adding this to the 'to do list' while you're here.
  • Really enjoyed the whole park. Didn't have high expectations going in, but was really blown away! Don't miss the animal ambassadors shows and the raptor show. They also had a special training show in the back of the gift shop that was really fun, Turbo the African porcupine was getting special collar training and was running around like a puppy; so cute! We got to take home a quill she dropped in her excitement. Lunch at the well decorated/themed restaurant was also very good. We're big Disney fans so have high standards, and Bearizona meet or exceeded them all!
  • Bearizona is a great wildlife park to visit. Nice grounds , friendly and knowledgeable staff and fun for the whole family. They are continuing to add and make improvements. They have a great restaurant and bar ans a great gift and souvenir shop. They have many events throughout the year for families as well as events just for over 21. The birds of pray show is Not to be missed! You can pay your entrance fee and stay all day. There is a walk through portion as well as a drive through portion in the park itself. Going through during feeding time is fun! There is also a group bus that makes trips through the park with a guided experience. Wonderful setting, gorgeous animals and a great experience overall. Such a fun place to check out in cool N. Arizona!
  • I'm from the UK and myself and my partner from Vegas visited attractions in Nevada, California and Arizona and Bearizona is by far the most incredible place we visited. The drive through safari like experience was amazing and the walk through zoo like arena is cute, exciting and varied. We had the best time ever and just wanted to do it all again the next day! Thank you so much to everyone behind Bearizona for a wonderful memory that defines our first holiday together.
