Last updated 6/23/2021 at 4:40pm

Blue Ridge Parkway officials announced that through July 1, 2021, tents and soft-sided campers are temporarily prohibited at Mount Pisgah Camp-ground.

The campground, located near Milepost 408, has seen increasing bear activity in recent days.

In particular, a young bear has established a pattern of entering occupied camp sites, coming too close to campers, and taking food from the sites. Park rangers and wildlife biologists are responding to the area and will attempt to disassociate this bear from human food rewards so all camping can resume. No injuries have been reported.
