Oswald’s Bear Ranch is the largest bear ranch in the United States. Since opening to the public in 1997, this complex has grown in size and in bears.

Tahquamenon Falls State Park encompasses nearly 50,000 acres and more than thirteen miles of majestic park and includes Whitefish Point and several waterfalls. Most noteworthy is Upper and Lower Tahquamenon Falls, the second largest waterfall east of the Mississippi (Niagara is its only superior).
The Falls spills over 50,000 gallons of water running 200 feet wide and 48 feet high. This Park also allows you to birdwatch, fish, hike, sight-see, camp, cross-country ski and go snowmobiling. You’ll find wildlife throughout the park like black bear, whitetail deer and moose, along with a variety of birds. Newberry is designated as the Official Moose Capital of Michigan, but sightings aren’t as frequent as that appellation might suggest. Most sightings do occur in the Tahquamenon State Park and north of Newberry. Given their druthers, moose prefer areas associated with water, ponds and swamps.
