Come see native wildlife in a beautiful natural setting! Take a leisurely stroll around the ¼ mile trail to see the bear, coyotes, wolves, porcupine, fox, bobcat, mountain lion, and elk; join us for a daily feeding tour; and come inside for a peek at the gift shop and collection of western art and wildlife displays.

Rocky Mountain Wildlife Park is a privately owned facility that has been in operation since 1986. Its purpose is to educate people about native wildlife and provide an opportunity to see these beautiful animals up close in what would be their natural habitats. All the animal residents are non-releasable for variety of reasons. The owners and staff strive to keep the animals happy, healthy and safe for the remainder of their lives.
