Bear Country USA


As its name suggests, this 250-acre drive-through wildlife park has lots of bears, particularly black ones. But on a drive through its natural Black Hills habitat, you’ll also spot freely roaming elk, bighorn sheep, buffalo, mountain goats, timber and Arctic wolves, bobcats, cougars, grizzly bears, and other North American animals. You can also walk through the Babyland area, home to smaller and younger animals, including lots of cubs.
