The Bear Den Zoo and petting farm has been family owned and operated for over 25 years. What started as a simple love for animals, turned into a dream of conservation, preservation and education. The Bear Den Zoo has amazing exotic animals in addition to traditional farm and native wild life for you and your family to enjoy.

Weather closing Info
At times, the weather conditions are not safe for our guests or our animals. Sometimes it is due to rain or muddy conditions because of rain. Other times the temperature and humidity level gets dangerously high for people as well as animals. On those days our staff spends their time cooling down the animals in which case we need to close the zoo in order to focus our attention to them. We hope you understand and apologize if this causes you any inconvenience. You can always check our facebook for daily announcement on closings or
call the Zoo at 262-895-6430
