B.C. Parks has closed the Cheakamus Lake trail and campground until further notice. This closure is in effect due to park users leaving attractants in the campground area resulting in a black bear accessing human food and starting to display aggressive behaviour. It is important that park users obey this closure to ensure that no further negative interactions occur with the bear and in hopes that the bear moves on from the area.
For more information, please contact B.C. Parks.
Report bear sightings by phoning the BC Conservation Officer Service at 1-877-952-7277.
