Are bears a problem on the White River NF?

Always take the necessary precautions when camping in bear country. Some campgrounds on the White River NF have had to temporarily close due to bears. Always keep a clean camp; don’t leave food out; store food in bear-resistant containers, in your vehicle, or hang in a tree at least 10 feet up and away from the trunk of the tree; set tents with spaces between them; sleep in an area well away from cooking areas; don’t keep clothes you cooked or handled fish or game with inside the tent you sleep in; and keep pepper spray readily available. For more information on camping in bear country, please visit the Colorado Division of Wildlife Web site: http://wildlife.state.co.us/Education/LivingWithWildlife/BearCountry.asp.
