The National Park Service is closing a campsite in the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area.

In a statement, the Park Service said bear activity at the Black Canyon Campground is forcing its closure, until further notice.

According to the park website, the Black Canyon Campground is a boat-in only campground near Yellowtail Dam.

Park officials are reminding people to store food and trash in designated bear boxes and trash cans, while in areas where bears may be present.
