Montana Grizzly Encounter is the place to be if you want to see grizzly bears up close. The Encounter looks after the welfare of grizzly bears in a completely natural environment. Currently, there are five grizzly bears under the protection of the organisation. These bears have been rescued from captivity and given a chance to live a better life. Visitors can interact with the bears in their natural environment. It is a great way to learn about the bears and their natural behaviours. The animals enjoy interaction with humans and are not violent, given to the nasty environments from which they were rescued. The organisation has studied the behaviour of the species and offers special tips when interacting with them or while hiking in bear counties.
- The organisation accepts donations for maintaining the bears. A list of items needed for taking care of the bears is put up on the official website.
- Children’s tickets (4-12 years): 5 USD
- Children aged 3 and below do not need a ticket.
- Seniors ticket (65 and above): 6 USD
- You can hire a taxi to get here.

This was a very worthwhile to spend an afternoon. The owner/ trainer/guide was wonderful and very passionate about the bears. Very informative. Don't go expecting to see a bear performance. Do expect to learn about the bears. We saw Bella and she was awesome to watch just enjoying herself. Running, climbing and playing. Time well spent.
Okay. So this place is so cool. The staff is friendly and helpful, and incredibly knowledgable. The bears are awesome and you are pretty close to them. We saw Bella and Brutus, and even though it was cold and snowing, it was a great experience. They clearly love their bears. If you have any interest in bears you should go support them.
Amy and Bill the owners were so personable and knowledgeable. I had such a wonderful experience here. learned a ton about bears that I didn't previously know even though I have been to the West Yellowstone bear encounter several times. Bill made me laugh several times while also sharing so much knowledge that he has collected over many years from having so much compassion for animals. I want to thank them and honor them for their genuine and honorable care for helping these bears. Thank you to Amy, Bill, all the volunteers, interns and donors. You guys are awesome.
Cool, little spot to see some grizzly bears up close! I spent about 45 minutes here and it was nice to support a local organization. The bears are really awesome!
Great experience visiting the Grizzly encounter. We went in 2016 on our way to Glacier. Bella and Brutus are the two main Grizzly's and they definitely put on a show. Staff are very knowledgeable and provide a detailed talk about the bears and how they came to the encounter. This is not a zoo, but an educational experience and without the encounter caring for these animals they would have surely been killed.
