A very cool place that does a great job of saving injured animals that would otherwise die or be euthanized. They have a lot of educational information too. Getting to see the wolves and bears from a closer distance than you would in Yellowstone is worth it alone.

A very pleasant surprise. The rescued bears and wolves were well treated and the center's layout allowed for quality viewing. The birds were an unexpected plus, and the initial visitor's center was better than expected. Well worth the stop and the time spent. If the line to the West entrance of Yellowstone NP is too long, spend some time at... More

My husband and I highly recommend GWDC. The staff care lovingly for the animals here, the facilities are educational as well as fun, and of course, the animals are amazing to watch! Our favorites are the bears and we spent hours of each of our five days in West Yellowstone enjoying the bears here. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.... More

This is a must see if you stop in West Yellowstone. The bears were fascinating, especially when they let 5 out at once. The wolves were spectacular. Only wish they had more room to take care of more animals that couldn't survive in the wild!

This place gives a good overview over the biology and behavior of the animals. The staff holds many informative sessions and comments all the activities taking place at scheduled times throughout the day. It is always possible to have a decent view on the many bears, watching the wolves at feeding time is somewhat harder, but still possible without lining... More

My 9 year old twins (boy & girl) both really liked this experience. We happened to arrive in time to participate in the Keeper Kids Program, where you pay $2 for an educational talk, a free button photo of your favorite animal in the park, and the chance to hide food for the bears in their habitat. Well worth it.... More

It is great that the park is able to save the animals from possible euthanasia & in turn give them a degree of quality of life. In doing this they are also able to educate the public on the rights & wrongs in coming into direct contact with wild animals. It is a great Center & we thoroughly enjoyed our... More

This is a wonderful non-profit center. The animals they have here receive excellent veterinary care (one of the wolves recently had a root canal done) The staff is very informative and helpful
