Well, you will certainly see bears here. Of course, it would be nicer for them to be in their natural environment in the wild but many were rescued. There are tons of bears as... read more

We were so happy with our visit to bear world! We paid for the curator tour and fed numerous bears from a feeding van. The petting zoo was awesome! My kids enjoyed petting the mule deer and the baby fawns running around, the amusement park was small and more little kid oriented, still my girls had fun riding the rides... More

Yellowstone Bear World was just wonderful. You can book up to feed the baby bears, 5 month old cubs that just adore being stroked while you bottle feed them. What a wonderful experience, something not to be missed for animal lovers. You can then walk round the Petting Zoo which had goats, pot bellied pig, chickens of all sorts, and... More

There are tons of bears as you drive through, it's actually a little over whelming. There's also a little zoo where I saw my first moose as they have always eluded me... More

The cost of this park for a family of four was a bit pricey ($75 a car load). It's about an hour away from West Yellowstone. It was great to see the bears considering we didn't see a bear in Yellowstone National Park. The park and bears are well cared for and clean. They have a petting zoo and a... More

Our boys ages 2, 4 and 7 LOVED this place!! When you first enter, you drive through the wild life, the boys loved it all but the Bear part was their favorite!! You can drive through as many times as you want, we went twice!! Gift shop is fairly reasonably priced. You get to go through the petting zoo, chickens,... More

We wanted to see bears and I guess we did see then but it was kind of a sad place. The advertising suggested education and conservation but we didnt see anything like that..it was like a big fenced area with animals in it. We felt sad for them. If you have small children this will probably be a good place... More

Such a great place to see bears! Go on the tour to feed them and watch the interactions between the wolves and bears. Some of those wolves are amazingly smart and devious! Speaking with the tour guide you quickly learn about the bears and you learn just how the staff love these animals. This young lady zoologist I spoke with... More

It is what it is. I have been reading scathing reviews based on visitors disappointed in the commercial aspects of a zoo like this and can concede some merits to them. However, for visitors without the leisure or the wherewithal to visit the parks at the optimal hours or locations for seeing wild bears, this is a benign and educational... More

This place is cool and the baby bear cubs are hilarious to watch. When we arrived it was near feeding time and this one little cub was making sure everyone knew about it soooo adorable. we took the curator tour around the park they give you a tray of food for the park animals so you can feed them which...

This was a stop on our way to Idaho Falls from West Yellowstone and was a great find! It is billed as Idaho's best wildlife attraction and did not disappoint. Great for families with small children. Lots to do here include a drive-through area, a petting zoo and lots of interactive activities. Don't miss the opportunity to feed the Bears... More
