Crater Lake Bear-Camper Conflicts Close Sites

The Aspen Daily News reports that camping around Crater Lake in the Maroon Bells Wilderness has been closed because of bear-camper conflicts.

The restriction keeps overnight visitors away from an area of dangerous bear activity and prevents bears from further obtaining food and garbage suspended from trees and in tents. It also provides a period of time for these bears to begin finding their natural food as berries and acorns become available downvalley, and may help keep these bears from becoming dependent on food and garbage, ultimately leading to their demise.
