This was a well maintained little spot, part drive through to see wolves, bears and other animals, with a small area of amusement ride, a petting zoo. They have an educational area. And let me not forget the Moose. Both my elder grandchildren got to feed bears they switched off every person in the group to feed each bear cub... More

Bear world was our chance to guarantee that we saw all the animals that we wanted to see while visiting Yellowstone National Park!

It's really cool to be able to see the bears and other wildlife. But the price is just so expensive for a 15 minute drive through the park. Also, the employees informed us that they don't even get paid minimum wage and that really turns me off. The owner is taking advantage of employees while charging outrageous prices. It would...

Made the 2 hour drive from Yellowstone to visit Bear World. Highlight was getting to bottle feed the 3 baby bears! Great experience and teenage daughter really enjoyed it. Make sure you make reservations in advance for this. Drive through bear park good opportunity to see bears up close.

I've been to Bear World many times and enjoyed it each time. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly and helpful. Kids will love the opportunity to feed animals, and enjoy the petting area.

We have stopped at Yellowstone Bear World many times on our way to Yellowstone National Park. We love it there! It's a drive through wildlife park that you can drive through as many times as you want. It's amazing to see these beautiful animals up close. You have to keep your car windows up because there are bears wandering everywhere.... More

We love going to Bear World with the kids. It's easy and the kids always get to see wildlife. It's great for all day. We go in the AM home for a bit and back for the PM (if we don't have passes that year).

It was probably my third visit and by far the best. There were probably 2 dozen bears, buffalo, elk, and wolves out. It can get expensive to visit though.

Fun attraction for the family. They had bear cubs that you can watch up close being fed and playing. Carnival type rides included with ticket price (Good for ten and under crowd) Lots of bear activity on the day we went drove through twice and had to yield to multiple bears in the road.

My wife and I stopped here on the way to Yellowstone Nat Park from Idaho Falls. Thought this might be a "tourist trap" but we were very surprised! We saw many black bears, elk, moose, wolves, and other wildlife on our leisurely drive through the park. Then stopped at the gift shop and bear feeding area and watched bear cubs... More
