  • Bear Warning - Hillard's Bay Campground

      July 28, 2020

      There have been many bear sightings in the campground over the past few days. Conservation officers are monitoring the situation and attempting to trap the bear.

      It is essential for all campers to keep their campsites clean. Garbage should be placed immediately in the bear-proof garbage containers. When you are not on your campsite, food, pet food, and any other scented products (eg. deodorant, toothpaste) must be locked up in cars or RVs.

    Although an advisory is in place for this area, bears can be encountered anywhere in the Northwest Region at any time. To avoid a surprise encounter with a bear:

    • Make plenty of noise and travel in groups.
    • Be aware of your surroundings. Look and listen for bears and their signs.
    • Keep your pet on a leash.
    • Carry bear spray. Make sure it’s easily accessible, and know how to use bear spray.
    • Learn more about bear safety review the Bear Smart Brochure.
