Protect wildlife by storing food properly

Where black bears are present, it's essential to store food properly. At Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks, all campsites have metal food-storage boxes. When you arrive, place all food and any items with a scent in these boxes. By doing this, you'll minimize the risk of damage to your vehicle.
