Designated sites Posted by: rpg51 on Nov-21-11 8:34 PM (EST)
The fact that camping is permitted only in designated sites is a problem in bear country. Bear/human contact is significantly reduced, and bears are less likely to become habituated if you travel in areas with fewer people and no designated sites where bears find food. A trip in Yellowstone is interesting, but I think I'll keep leaning to trips in areas were few people travel and the bears are not habituated.
