Because we are located in the heart of the Canadian wilderness, there is always a chance that a curious bear may wander into camp. We rarely have problem bears that linger around camp because we make a strong effort to keep the camp clean of garbage or accessible food. We also have two young dogs that do an excellent job of chasing out any unwanted bears. Black bears by their nature are very docile creatures. They are usually more afraid of us than we are of them. If you always make your presence known when walking, carry a flashlight a night, and keep all food and drinks in your cabin, you should have little to worry about.
