Welcome to Oswald’s Bear Ranch. Your hosts Dean and Jewel Oswald invite you to explore their world of the American Black Bear! This complex is the Largest (bear only) Bear Ranch in the entire United States! We are found only in the Wild Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Rescued cubs are brought here every year and they are always a joy to see! Area youth enter contests yearly to name these newborn creatures. People love to see them grow, play and become adult bears!

Located just 20 minutes south of Tahquamenon Falls, or from Newberry go 4 miles north on M-123 towards Tahquamenon Falls. Turn left at 4 Mile Corner (Deer Park Rd., Muskallonge Lake, H-37 H-407).Then it’s 4 1/2 more miles to see the home of Tyson Bear (died July 2, 2000) certified weight of 880 lbs.
The Largest Black Bear in the U.S. and possibly the World.
Also see 30 Live Roaming Bears!
