We did a tour and this was a stop on it. Very entertaining and worth the visit. It was a good way to observe bears in a safe environment. There were several eagles in the trees and flying around to view. A must stop if you are in the area.

This place is much better than you would expect. A very large bear viewing area with great guides. Multiple areas. you will see a lot of bald eagles as well.

These beautiful creatures came to be fed like big dogs while we were there, that was really neat! The bear guide was very friendly and knowledgeable wish our kids had been with us to see them!

Great fun! Good Cause, totally enjoyable! Plenty of bald eagles to boot....Bears could "sign" to owners when they were hungry, to get more food. nifty!
