Bearizona Wildlife Park, Williams
(4.5/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I had heard of Bearizona from friends that had visited so it was a must for us to swing by while we were staying in Williams. Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our experience of Bearizona. The place ...  more »

  • Thought we thought the $20 admission price was a little hefty at first, this place was amazing! Perfect for people of all ages and interests! The drive through safari had a nice route and you got very close to the animals, even though they were mostly all asleep when we got there. The free flight raptor show was included with admission and was phenomenal. The smaller creature habitats were adorable and you even get to pet and brush goats! Throughout the day they have different events going on so I would look it up first so you get an idea of what time you want to be there. Awesome complement to our Grand Canyon trip!
  • If you're near here go to this place. The animal enclosures are big enough for the animals but small enough you won't get no shows. We drove through the first time in the early afternoon and most animals were sleeping. Then we went through the walk through and it was amazing. They had a meet and greet in the gift shop where we met Lucy the armadillo. The staff was very knowledgeable. They were also happy to answer any and all questions. They also have a bird's of prey show, its a must see. After that we drove back through the park at about 3:00pm and all of the animals were up and moving. They allow you to drive through as many times as you like on your visit. Lots to see there. I will happily spend the money to visit again.
  • Cool cool cool. Mini local sfari ride. Park is small but beautiful. Animals are free love and cool. Might bit a tad expensive but i would recommend it if your on the way with 2 hours to spend.
  • It was a great experience! At the time that we went there was some construction so that took away from the experience a bit but overall it was amazing. The food was the cost and quality of any theme park. The difference was that they allow you to take your food from outside. The first 3 miles are driving through the predators and seeing the black bears and wolves eating and playing. The walking area is like a zoo with Arizonan animals to see in habitats you can find in the state. There were lots of exhibits at different times throughout the day that taught about the wildlife. I recommend it to anyone visiting especially with kids.
  • This place is really cool! There's an area where you can drive through the park and see various animals, such as black bears, wolves, big horn sheep and more. You'll also encounter some of the staff on the drive through who explain what's up ahead and answer any questions you have. There's also a separate area where you can walk through the park and see a predator bird show (recommended), bear cubs, foxes, lynxes and more. There's also a large gift shop if you'd like to purchase any souvenirs. Price of admission was $20 per person and that covers both the drive through and walk through areas of the park. You'll easily spend a few hours here; the price is well worth it.
