STORING FOOD SAFELY AT YOUR CAMPSITE
To protect food from animals you can hang the food from a pole suspended between two trees. The height of the bags depends upon which visitors you are expecting. You will require 12 feet (3.6M) for a bear. This storage area should be downwind from the camp as you do not want animals trudging through your camp on the way to your storage area. Place it at least 50 feet (15M) from your shelter. Food should be placed in canvas bags 12 feet (3.6M) above the ground.
** Check with your local authorities or the National Park Service to ensure you comply with all regulations.**
