Cardens Bluff Campground Reopens After Bear Has Been Captured

Share this article

Carden Bluff Campground in Cherokee National Forest (Tennessee) reopened to the public today, June 23, after the bear seen at the campground last week was captured.

On Thursday last week, there were reports of aggressive bear activity and evidence of bears entering the campgrounds and taking food and garbage, including food that had been stored in an unoccupied tent.

U.S. Forest Service officials warned visitors to be on the lookout for black bears and be BearWise.

Forest Order for the entire Cherokee National Forest prohibits the possession of bear attractant as well as leaving food unless appropriately stored. 

The order was issued for visitor safety, the conservation of bears, and to help ensure that recreational areas can safely remain open to Forest visitors.

Campers are reminded to throw away all trash in an approved receptacle, not leave anything behind, and not burn food scraps or other trash in fire rings.
