How to stay safe from bears


Here are some tips to help keep you safe from bears.

  • Never snack in your tent.
  • Keep all camp “smellables” stored properly, using bear-resistant containers to protect them from hungry bears. Smellables include any item with a scent: food and items like canned goods, bottles, drinks, soaps, cosmetics, toiletries, trash, coolers and unwashed items.
  • Have out only the food that you are actually using; if you’re not using it, put it back into the food locker.
  • Treat your trash like food: keep it in your food locker or dispose of it in a bear-proof dumpster.
