Didn't see any bears while in Yellowstone so it was great to see some here and boy they were a fun group wrestling and swimming around. The wolves were beautiful.

we went here the morning we were leaving town. I wish we had gone the evening before as well (your admission gets you in 2 consecutive days) since I could have spent more time here. My kids (7&9) really enjoyed it. I would suggest checking out their schedule online before you go - we were there when they let 5... More

Visited with my family with teenagers and my sister's family with young kids and everyone thought it was interesting. If you have young kids and have the time I recommend participating in the kids program where they get to hide the food for the bears!

We had fun visiting this place. If you go at feeding time you get to see bears & wolves being very active. They accept AAA and you pay once and 2 day pass. They keep the place very clean and nice.

For kids not adults, we paid $26 for the two of us thinking we would watch the grizzlys but just got to watch a bunch of kids hide apples, save your money!

The animals are contained in fenced in areas and interesting. The wolves were sleeping while I was there but all is for a good cause.

This is a great place to stop if you want to get up close to grizzly bears and wolves. I don't like to see caged animals, but these are rescues and could not make it in the wild. They seem to be well cared for and have a nice area to roam around in. Each day the staff (and visitors)... More
