Special BWCAW Bear Alert - Pipestone Bay near Back Bay Portage

Two bears (a sow and her yearling) are habitually seeking food from campsites and portages in Pipestone Bay of Basswood Lake on the east side, near the Back Bay Portage.  Safeguard your gear and food from bears.  If a bear is persistent about coming to your campsite, you may want to move to another campsite.  Remember bears are good swimmers.
