Bear Country USA, Rapid City Reviews

  • What an amazing place. Was here a summer ago with my family and we stopped in not really knowing what we were getting into. Would pay twice as much for this experience. You get to drive past local animals. Bears, Wolves, Elk, it was so cool. And then they also have a zoo that you can walk through. We saw baby bears and they were the cutest thing I have ever seen, they were very playful. Would definitely stop in again if we were in the area.

  • Seems pricey to see a bunch of bears laying around all day getting sunburned. Truth be told, you've seen one bear, you've seen them all. 🐻🐻🐻 🐼🐼 I can't tell the difference between a Brown Bear and a Panda Bear. Can you ?? ......Yea right. If you have kids, it is a fun experience. They will really like the baby cubs at the end. 🐾🐾🐾

  • It was a bit on the pricey side. But, my family and I really enjoyed it. The drive through was nice. Most of the animals happened to be sleeping when we went but as soon as we hit the part with the bears it was very exciting! Nothing like holding up traffic because a bear decided he wanted to sit and take a break right in front of your vehicle. After the drive through we stopped to walk around their other exhibit and it was well worth it. The kids and I could have stayed all day just watching the bear cubs play! Very entertaining and memories we will never forget!

  • I liked it. The entrance was right off the highway. It was busy when we arrived so it took about 1 1/2 hours to drive through. However, the time passes fast because of the scenery. If you are in a rush, go during off peak hours. The baby cubs were adorable. I thought the price was high for one SUV though. Probably won't return

  • This was a very fun visit. Enjoyed. Lots of animals to see. Plenty of brown and black bears. Definitely recommend to all.
