There were a lot of animals that were fun to see in this type of environment. They weren't really close to the road but definitely close enough for a great look see.

All animals were easily seen and plentiful. The kids enjoyed seeing the bears, antelope, elk, wolves, badgers, skunks, etc. it was worth the trip.

Animals are allowed to roam freely within about 8 different areas. Avoid going in the middle of a hot day. The animals are mostly relaxing in the shade.
