Bear Country USA is home to 20 species of North American mammals which live in large natural exhibits. While captive born, every effort is made to imitate a wild environment for our animal residents. Larger species roam freely throughout 250 acres of the drive-thru park. Smaller animals, as well as those younger than one year, are exhibited in the Babyland area. Visitors can observe these animals while strolling on foot.
""The Scouts had a great time at Bear Country USA. They have never been that close to bears before. The Scouts I had with me were the older Scouts that have backpacked in Yellowstone Nation Park, and Philmont, New Mexico and have been on canoe trips to Boundary Water going deep into Canada. At night they have always had to put their food in bear bags and hang them high in the trees so the bears could not get at it. In all those trips we never had a bear in our camp. After seeing your bears, close up, and see how big they were, one of the Scouts in the back seat of my pickup said ""Holy cow, now I know why we hung the bear bags"". After we drove through the Wildlife Park we stopped at the snack bar and walked through the exibits. The hardest part of the day was getting the Scouts away from the baby bears and back in the cars. (You have a great wildlife Park) We spent a week in the Black Hills, the main reason for the trip was to bike the Mickelson Trail, but the highlight of the trip was Bear Country U.S.A.. That night, after we ate, while sitting around the camp fire we drank a Pepsi Cola toast to you and your Wildlife Park. On behalf of all the Scouts and Adults from Troop 554 Littleton, Colorado, I want to thank you very much for allowing us to visit your Wildlife Park. Thanks again, Assistant Scoutmaster BSA Troop 554""
