Stopped on our way to Yellowstone, nice clean place with with what appeared to be healthy animals. My teen daughter enjoyed taking selfies with the animals in the petting zoo. Liked the elk along with the bears.

If you have done a lot of hunting or farming in your life, or if you are a local, you will most likely not be a big fan of Bear World. However, for those wanting to see a bunch of different wildlife, it's a fun place to visit. I have been three times and have enjoyed it every time, because... More

We arrived mid-morning in the summer, so it was getting warm and several animals were looking for shade. But there were still several animals out in open view. Lots of deer and bear were walking around, including near the road, so good viewing there. The drive through portion is probably only a 15-20 minute experience, but the petting zoo was... More

We went fairly early in the morning. The animals were active. The facility is not real large but is ok. Doesn't compare to Bear Country in Rapid City, SD or Bearzonia in Arizona, and is a little pricey for what you see. It has a small amusement ride section which is geared for young children. We drove through the park... More

I was originally skeptical about how fun a "roadside wildlife experience" could be, but I now recommend Yellowstone Bear World as a must do if you are in the area! The animals are great and our 3yr old just loves to point them out as the car rolls by each section. They have TONS of bears! Go during the most... More

Take your time driving through, then you can go back again (and again) to see and picture the animals. Lots of bear, deer (and fawns), elk, including a white one, moose and grey wolves. And a petting zoo, and rides for the kids. All in all, well worth the time.

We drove through the park 5 times and each time was different. Getting behind the park tour bus was very cool as were able to watch people feeding the bears from the upper deck up close. Lots of animals-Bilson, Elk, Deer, Mountain Goats, Gray Wolf, Black Bears, Brown Bears and Grisly Bears all on the drive through tour. Worth the... More

This is an overpriced park that sits on small amount of land. If you have never been around animals then you might like this park but if you are like us and raise cattle & horses and hunt then you will think this place is an overpriced joke.

We decided to visit here because it was unlikely to see bears at Yellowstone. The drive through portion took about 30 minutes. FOLLOW THE RULES GIVEN. There are a few other animals besides bears: bison, deer, elk, moose, mountain goats. Once you enter the bear area, there are many bears. Some are sleeping, some are sitting, some are moving about.... More
