Bear Country USA, Rapid City Reviews
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
Pretty animals. They have multiple big, open fenced in areas you drive through. They have pens with bears, wolves, Rams, and more! Really cool being right in the pens with them. Also they have other animals in a side area that is like a zoo. It's also where they keep the baby bears.
As far as I know, Bear Country USA is the only drive-through wildlife attraction in South Dakota. The kids will love the excitement when they realize the animals could come right up to their windows! So when you get the family loaded up and head to Mount Rushmore, make sure you make a stop at Bear Country USA. It's an affordable family fun stop in our beautiful Black Hills.
My kids loved looking at all the bears and other animals. The Cubs were so fun to watch. The restrooms were nice. We went to late in the season for the restaurant to be open. We were disappointed that for the very high cost we could only drive through once without going back out.
