We stopped here on a friend's recommendation and we weren't disappointed. It is definitely aimed at children younger than ours but we still enjoyed it. We recommend if you are driving through the park (as oppose to taking the curator tour) to at least follow...More

It was a fun time going to see all the animals there. They have a very white elk that is amazing! Unfortunately, it was hot so a lot of the bears were in shelter and couldn't see them very well. But there are a bunch!!

We stopped here on the way to Yellowstone. It's drive through park and you can drive in midst of elk, bison, deer, black bear and moose. There were plenty of them in all sizes. Keep your windows rolled up and stay on the marked roadways....More
