This place is well run, very informative and you are able to get a really good view of grizzlies and wolves which you are unlikely to get in the wild without being very lucky (or unlucky!). The staff were very knowledgeable about the animals all of which had been rescued from the wild -for various reasons they can't be released... More

It was good to be up close to five grizzly bears, just a ditch and a little fence separating us. It was fun when they ran a bell and all the bears went out through the back of the enclosure. Then a group of small children entered with two keepers. The kids had to hide the pieces of food they... More

This place was really cool. The bear and wolf exhibits were really nice and it looks like the animals were very well taken care of. You should definitely go if you didn't get to see any bears or wolves in the wild. It was cool watching them feed the bears. There were also several birds. I would visit again!

This was a last minute decision to stop here and I'm so glad we did. Very educational and staff was very helpful. While the bears were coming out my son noticed that the wolves were close to the fence so we walked over. I was thrilled to get such a close encounter with these beautiful animals.

The Center is well thought out, easily walked, and has areas where you can warm yourself if chilled. Exhibits are excellently done and they are building new facilities. Admission isn't expensive but membership means it's free. If you have a favorite amongst the animals, consider adopting them as my wife and I have. Getting close to Griz and wolves as... More

We arrived on a very chilly day but the bears and wolves were out and about, and there were educational presentations which allowed us to come in and warm up. Nice gift shop.

On a VERY wet afternoon when our photography trip in to Yellowstone was called off, several of our group decided to check this place out as it was close to our hotel. Our first experience was listening to the wolves striking up a chorus of howling as a couple of fire trucks went past with sirens blaring ! I have... More

This place is so well managed! It's great for the wildlife & visitors too! We were there in July and the children got to participate in a "bear enrichment" activity. They got to enter the outdoor enclosure and hide food under rocks, logs etc. Then they left and the bears were allowed to enter. The Bears sniffed around, turned over... More
