the bear and wolves and other animals were caged, just like in a zoo. It seems that the animals are used for profit, because there wasn't anything happy about them. you pay for the entrance so they can be fed, but other than that, it's just sad for the animals.

I'm not sure why this is getting such high reviews. While staying in the area on spring break with our two kids, we decided to visit this park based on the reviews on TripAdvisor. We were all disappointed. This park had 2 coyotes that were sleeping, a grizzly bear that was inside of a brick structure and hardly visible, two... More

We decided to walk around the park on our own but we had a "guide" whether we wanted one or not. A darling little calico cat followed us the whole way and took the opportunity to sit with us/on us when we paused for a brief rest to get the petting of her life time. The animals were very interesting... More

Great, caring staff. Animals in their care could not survive in the wild. We were disappointed the bear was hibernating but that was just a timing issue. Visit well worth the price if you are there at feeding time. Our guide was very knowledgable and patient with the 'dumb' city folk questions. Excellent way to spend a couple hours if... More

We were done skiing wolf creek (they needed some fresh snow), and found this gem. A very nice way to spend an afternoon. Definitely go during feeding time. We learned a lot. Very knowledgable staff, warm and compassionate. Animals are well-cared for.

We went for feeding time and had a good time. I was honestly worried when we pulled up but figured the kids (6 and 2) would enjoy it. It ended up that we all enjoyed it. All the staff was very warm and welcoming. The lady leading the tour and doing the feeding was very knowledgeable. So much so that... More

On our visit for a week to Pagosa Springs, we visited the Rocky Mountain Wildlife Park. We were there for three hours as we stayed for the feeding of these majestic animals. We were amazed as how little they charge considering the amount of food it takes to run this place. ALL the people that work there are truly involved... More

If you stop, I would highly recommend going for the 4:00pm feeding where you get to see all the wildlife close and moving since they know it is feeding time and move forward to the guide who feeds them. Out tour guide/feeder was very knowledgeable about the animals, too. I would say that I was never able to observe so... More

A great place to see a variety of Colorado wildlife. Try to arrive at feeding time in the afternoon as you can see the animals better and get a narrative from one of the workers about each animal as they are fed. This place also offer horseback riding. I recommend the two hour ride as they take you into a... More

We were excited to see a wildlife park which was advertised in the Pagosa Springs brochure. Unfortunately, the advertisement was misleading in the sense that it did not say that it is an enclosed park with the animals in cages and you must walk through it. My husband is handicapped and we had expected a drive through a park with... More
