Camping in and around Yellowstone is
an awesome experience but there are a few things
to be careful of. Wild animals, especially females
with young, are unpredictable. Keep a safe distance
from all wildlife. Each year a number of park visitors
are injured by wildlife when approaching too closely.
Approaching on foot within 100 yards of bears
or within 25 yards of other wildlife is prohibited.
Please use roadside pullouts when viewing wildlife.
Use binoculars or telephoto lenses for safe viewing
and to avoid disturbing them. By being sensitive
to its needs, you will see more of an animal's natural
behavior and activity. If you cause an animal to
move, you are too close!
