Congdon Creek Campground, near Destruction Bay, closed last week after grizzly bears moved into the area.
Every year bears show up at the campground off the Alaska Highway, said Environment spokesperson Dennis Senger.
This year, possibly because of an abundant soapberry crop, as many as four bears have arrived, including a mother and her two cubs.
The mother has been displaying protective behaviour and has even charged a group of tourists who left their car to take pictures.
Environment recommends that anyone travelling through the area stay in their vehicle and leave the bears alone.
It is unknown how much longer the campsite will remain closed. (CO)
