BEARS, BEARS, BEARS.....AUGUST 15, 2012


The bears are out in force with the berry harvest! In an effort to protect yourselves and the bears, please use excellent camping techniques. 

  • Keep your food and other smelly items in bear canisters or bear boxes; 
  • Keep your food supply neat and condensed while cooking to avoid a surprise dinner guest; 
  • Pack out all trash and carry bear spray.

Until further notice, Leigh Lake Sites 14A, 14B and 16 are closed due to bear activity. Please contact the Jenny Lake Ranger Station if you have upcoming campsite reservations for any of these locations.

During the busy season large crowds can be hard on the natural resources.  Climbers and hikers are reminded that short-cutting causes erosion and signficant resource damage, and may be cause for citation by a backcountry ranger.  Please remain on the well travelled and marked trails in the backcountry of Grand Teton National Park.
