What a great opportunity to see a grizzly up close.

Very wonderful experience, but we worry that as they continue to expand, they are losing the intimacy of the various experiences.

Jeff the Bear Man was fantastic! Bob and Screech are so well cared for. They were playing with a rock that they wanted to get into their pool. Everyone in our group loved it.

While Wilstem seems to be leaning towards becoming a drive thru Safari park, our favorite part is always the encounters. This time did not disappoint. Jeff "the bear man" is very knowledgeable, personable and engaging. Bob and Screech are adorable. The great relationship between this man and his bears is evident.

The Bear Man is amazing! He does an excellent job interacting with the bears, as well as providing visitors with knowledge about them. Although I wouldn’t recommend it for young children, he does a great job captivating audiences of all ages. You can tell he truly loves what he does, and spends seven days a week doing encounters for people. Wilstem is lucky to have him! Sure hope he’s paid well!

Great day trip! Our family of 4 visited for the grizzly bear experience & got to see so much more! Good variety of creatures to observe & interact with. Jeff the grizzly guy was very informative & conscientious of the safety of his bears & himself. They were fascinating & a good opportunity to safely get up close to animals you'd otherwise never want to be near in their normal environment.

The gentleman in the kangaroo barn was amazing! I had several small children with me and he took great time and care to make sure everyone got to see the animals and gave them age appropriate information. The bears were also amazing. Their owner also was very patient and understanding of the young children. He kept the information exciting, brief and age appropriate. They took several pictures for us throughout the facility and had great patience with our group of kids. We will definitely go back for the elephants!

From Our Editors

Stretching across more than a thousand acres at the foot of southern Indiana's Hoosier National Forest, Wilstem's rolling farmland is home to creeks, caves, natural-rock outcroppings, and more than 30 miles of woodland trails, marking it as an ideal family escape. A creek populated by small-mouth bass attracts local fishermen; wildflowers, native plants, and trees color the historic landscape in natural vegetation. Additionally, a variety of cabins—equipped with kitchens, hot tubs, and fireplaces—provide cozy accommodations year-round. Wilstem also offers ATV Tours and Horseback Riding.

Then there are the zip lines. Tours send thrill-seekers flying across 4,000 feet of French Lick woodlands, experiencing unparalleled views and leaving squirrels chittering in jealousy. There are no ground landings on these canopy tours—each of the nine lines spans from platform to platform for maximum excitement.
