My daughter, mother, and I went to Oswald’s Bear Ranch for the very first time on 4th of July weekend. We were really impressed.
Oswald’s Bear Ranch is the largest bear-only complex in the United States of America. It is the home of twenty-nine rescued bears, with two huge (and beautiful) habitats for their older bears. They also have two smaller habitats for their younger bears.
I found it to be very family friendly, inexpensive, and great exercise for the little one. It’s only $20 per vehicle to get into the park. You can stay and explore as long as you want AND you can buy a bag of apples to feed the bears, if you so choose. They love it (both bears and children). You have the option to stay at eye level with the bears and see them through the fencing, or look down at them from one of their look-out platforms.
Squeak was mesmerized.
We will definitely be back to Oswald’s Bear Ranch in the fall!
Mini adventures for life.
