    Default Russian Camping

    Have they closed the Russian River Campground to tenting? I thought I had read something that they had closed it because of Bears, but couldn't find anything on it.

    Several years ago, tent camping was banned at the Russian River campground because of heightened bear activity. In addition, a curfew on fishing was implemented. However, these measures were lifted the following year.

    No issues with tent camping these days. Should be good to go.

    Yeah it's fun until there's a brownie sniffing at your tent at 2:30 AM one night and then at 3:30 AM the next night you can hear them fighting just down the ravine!!!!!
    They sound pretty scary when they're growling and roaring in the pitch black.

    But it's waaaaaay les scary when you have a 44 Magnum for a pillow!!!!!
