Wild Arizona- Bearizona and Grand Canyon Deer Farm

Bearizona is still relatively new, originating in August 2009, when the Casey’s purchased 160 acres right outside of Williams and began constructing the wildlife park.  The park greeted its first visitors in May 2010 and it has been growing ever since.

While there, we enjoyed the Raptor show.  During these shows, you come face to face with hawks, owls, falcons and other raptors.

In fact, they fly right about 3 inches above your head.  (Not a show for those afraid of birds).

We do recommend the show as it was incredibly informative and it was amazing to get so close to these beautiful birds.

This wolf and I were about 10 feet apart.  He said hi.

Well, at least I think that is what he was saying…

Half of the animals at Bearizona are rescues, and half were obtained from other parks. The animals seem happy and well cared for, and many live a much longer life than they would in the wild.

We plan on revisiting Bearizona again very soon.  Possibly with our girls who will be coming up to visit at the end of the month.  It was an amazing experience!

Our next stop was the Grand Canyon Deer Farm…

  1. What a great experience Suzy and it all looks so interesting. I don`t know who was having more fun, you and Dave or the animals 🙂 I think you all were. Thanks for sharing .

    1. Hi Heather!

      We do love the animals, that’s for sure! It is so much fun taking a “mini” vacation every week and seeing what there is to see!

  2. Hi Suzy,
    We have been to both places and couldn’t agree with you more. We had a great time and learned a lot as well. Enjoy your travels!

  3. I went to Grand Canyon last year and never heard of either of these places. I so now want to go back just to see them. Especially the camel. How fun. I love your sharing the places you see.

    1. Hi Judi!
      One of the great things about staying in an area and work camping is the fact that you get to look at the area as the locals do. And take your time looking. It helps me to show those that are just passing by some of the parts that they might want to check out. If you ever get a chance to come back, be sure to check out the camel. She was amazing!

  4. Thanks so much for sharing. I lived in Cottonwood for 3 yrs. Next time I visit my sis I’ll sure visit both parks. Love your traveling sitcom and crafts.

    1. Hi Dottie!

      Thank you so much for your kind words! And Cottonwood! Well we took the motorcycle through there about a month ago. It was 110 degrees in the shade. The hottest I’ve ever experienced. We got to Jerome and the temp went down to 100 and it felt fabulous! LOL!

      Maybe we will run into each other one day. It is a small world out there!
