  • I think most of us have seen a bear or two in our local zoos. But seeing this many bears together is something to behold. And the massive environment they have to roam and play let's you know that.....  more »
  • Highly recommend!! I thought it would be sad to see bears in cages like at the zoo, but these bears are SO HAPPY and living enriched lives. They've got tons of room, get treats from visitors, and are clean and well cared for. I loved this place. If you've got the extra $10, take a picture with the bear cub! It was awesome to get to pet one
  • We had an amazing day at Oswald’s Bear Ranch! One of the best tourist things in the UP. Prices are SUPER reasonable. Bears seem happy and treated well. I would recommend this place to anyone! All of the staff were super friendly to us. We got a bear cub photo that was very clear and the staff was very helpful and kind. They have apples you can throw to the bears which was really fun! I wouldn’t listen to the negative reviews! This place is a great, family-friendly place to visit!
