Come face-to-face with a black bear!

Have you ever wanted to come face-to-face with a black bear? Look no further than Bearizona in Williams, just down the street from our home! Spend a day here driving through the wildlife preserve observing animals in their natural habitat and stretching your legs at Fort Bearizona to come even closer to the animals. 

Visitors can drive through more than three miles of forest to get up-close with North American wildlife. On display are rocky mountain goats, bighorn sheep, bison, and of course, black bears! Learn more about the animals you can see driving through here. Bearizona’s roads are well-maintained and their only requirement for driving through is that your car windows are rolled up. No one wants a bear to jump in the back seat to go for a ride!

After your drive through, stretch your legs and take a stroll through Fort Bearizona, the park’s zoo area. There you can see an assortment of animals including adorable, little bear cubs. Attend a keeper chat to learn more about the animals there or come face-to-face with birds of prey at the High County Raptors show. Bearizona is fun for the whole family and features a petting zoo for the kids.

Buy your tickets here or at the gate. Prices vary depending on the time of year you are visiting. We think the best time of year to visit is in the springtime, when  there are usually little baby bear cubs running around!
