A Bear - right in front of my camper!!!
« on: July 23, 2019, 05:15:49 PM »
We were camping at Tims Ford State Park in Tennessee - very nice campground - about 10 days ago. It was the middle of the night, with bright moonlight. My dogs jumped up simultaneously and started barking. I quieted them down and decided to look out the window to see what caused the bedlam. It was a bear - small, or at least I thought it was small, black, round, ambling around our camper. We had left nothing outside, so it wandered off to the next campsite, where a family was camping in a tent.

I finally got the dogs quiet, as they were growling even after the bear left our campsite. I was able to go to sleep, but my husband stayed awake for a while. He said the family camping in the tent packed up and left about 4 AM. He thinks the bear scared them into leaving. Hard-sided campers are a good thing.
