It is important to remember to keep your camp stall clean and
free of garbage and debris. Garbage and food stuff can attract
all sorts of critters. Skunks, raccoons or even bears might
find themselves in your stall in search of their next meal. By
properly securing, storing and disposing of your garbage and
food you can eliminate the need for these animals to visit
your campground. This is good not only for your safety, but for
the animals as well. Bears that associate food with people are
often destroyed because they will continue to look towards
humans as their food supply, endangering themselves and
others in the process.
