Evening to you all. Just a concern i've got about camping in Yellowstone an wondering if an experienced camping member of the site could clear this up. See, me an my driving comrade Dave are fairly inexperienced at camping, and by fairly I mean completely, and we're just slightly worried about the bears should we camp in Yellowstone?? Do they pose a threat?? Need we sleep with our shotguns? Or are there provisions taken at campgrounds to ensure campers safety... like 24 hour armed surveilance or somethin along those lines? Are there ever any fatalities at campgrounds due to bears and if so, is there anything you would recommend to ensure we stay clear of such an eventuality?
And also, wot time would someone advise us to get to campgrounds in the morning to hopefully grab a spot? Is there a universal magic number or just early in the morning an keep fingers crossed???
Matt & Dave
