We Visit Bear Country USA

Drive Through Animal Park

July 2014 was when we did our massive 22 state, 15 national park road trip. We stayed 2 nights in Rapid City, SD to give us time to see all the things we wanted to see in the area. One of those things was Bear Country USA. This is a wild animal park that you can drive your car through. They have a place to wash your windshield before going in because you cannot roll your windows down while in the park. You wouldn't want a bear to grab you, now would you? Yeah, us either.

They have wolves, deer, mountain goats, buffalo, mountain lions and bears. We probably forgot to mention one type of animal or another, but if you go to the park, you'll get to see them nonetheless. The bears are the main attraction and there are plenty of them. They will walk right up to your car and let you get some good pictures. After you finish the drive through part, they have a gift shop and a bunch of open exhibits of different types of animals. Hopefully, there are lots of bear cubs when you visit. It is a neat place and worth visiting if you are in the area.

Below are the pictures we took while at the park. It's like you were right there with us... :)
