Popular McCloud Falls Campground Closed Due to Bear Activity

Officials in the Shasta Trinity National Forest have temporarily closed the popular campground near McCloud Falls due to an assertive black bear that continues to roam the campground.

Fowler’s Campground is a popular destination during the summer months due to its close proximity to the three tiers of McCloud Falls, providing excellent swimming, fishing and hiking opportunities. Forest Service workers have not been able to deter a pesky bear stealing food around the area, so they will instead close the campground and do a “deep clean” on the area in hopes of removing remnants of food smells, all trash, etc. to eradicate the temptations that kept the bear coming around.

Help take proper steps to minimize bear encounters by doing the following:

  • Keep a clean campsite by properly disposing of food scraps and garbage at ALL times.
  • Never leave food or coolers unattended OR out in the open (i.e. on picnic tables).
  • Do not leave dog food out ever.
  • Store food and garbage inside a vehicle or camper trailer at all times.
  • Never store food or any smelly products inside your tent.

  1. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a
    decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely
    unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but
    I had to ask!

  2. Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?

    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options
    for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  3. First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you
    do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and
    clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thank you!

  4. Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I’ve really enjoyed browsing your
    blog posts. After all I’ll be subscribing to your rss feed
    and I hope you write again very soon!

  5. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up
    what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.

    Do you have any recommendations for rookie blog writers?

    I’d definitely appreciate it.
