Our Mission:

To motivate and increase public awareness in the management of natural resources for conservation, education, scientific and recreational purposes. Assisted by an extensive educational and conservation philosophy especially in terms of North American wildlife and protected habitat. To be the leader in the drive through wild animal preserve industry.

At Yellowstone Bear World all of the wildlife within have been captive bred, born and raised. None of the animals have been taken directly from the wild. Yellowstone Bear World allows wildlife to roam freely within huge acreage as opposed to living their lives in small inadequate cages. By roaming freely in the preserve, visitors of all ages and nationalities can gain a fuller knowledge and understanding of these particular species that commonly surround us, but rarely seen or understood.

  • This place was awesome! Our boys are 6, 7 and 8. We all loved it. Staff was very friendly, grounds were clean and animals were awesome!  more »
  • Perfect to being your kids! Safari-like drive right by 50-100 bears (one crossed the road in front of us!) along with other fun animals. Then there’s a petting zoo area with baby dear, chickens, warthogs, and more and you just get to walk around with and pet them! And on top of that they have fun carnival rides ideal for ages 2-10 I’d say. You can even bottle feed a baby bear for $50 extra (we didn’t but wanted to!)
  • This place was a pleasant surprise. I thought it would be a typical tourist trap type of place but it was awesome! You pay 1 price to get in and that includes watching the adorable baby bears, riding the rides, visiting the petting zoo (they have deer!), AND driving through the bigger animal sections. We expected to be there 20 minutes and ended up enjoying about 3 hours.
