Had to take the long road to get home and did not waste an opportunity to stay at my favorite campground. As a walk in you pay $20/night for an available non-reservable campsite. C Loop has showers and D Loop does not. Bears were active but did not bother me in the least. I could hear them turning over stones in the night hunting for bugs, and I saw two small bears 25’ from my tent in the morning. I did as they recommend and put ALL scented items in the provided bear boxes, sleep in clothes I did not cook in or eat in, and I had only water in my tent. They couldn’t have been less interested in me. Next morning I hiked Black Balsam and Tennent Mountain Loop. Gorgeous!!! The chicken salad to go from the Lodge store was fantastic! Don’t go anywhere near this place without stopping here!
