bears and food storage
« on: May 19, 2010, 11:58:16 am »
Hi,

I am going to cycle around the Tetons and through Yellowstone up to Missoula. Is there food storage containers in the camp grounds? Or do I need to carry my food in a bear box/canister like I do when I backpack? I am sticking to the paved roads and developed campsites.

Ther are bear boxes at the public camping areas throughout Yellowstone.  If you venture into the backcountry (highly recommend it) they even supply bear poles to hang your food from--BYO rope though ;D

+1 On that route, we found that bear boxes were generally available where needed.
