Today, June 23, we did the first bear viewing trip of this season at Brooks Camp and Falls in Katmai National Park. While it is still slow with bears showing up for their favorite meal, there were sows with cubs visiting the Falls. Normally sows with cubs stay away from the waterfall – with boars ruling the waterfall most of July, it is dangerous for cubs to be too close to the prime feeding grounds.
One change this year at Brooks is that the National Park Service has prohibited use of tripods for your cameras, or any devices that would attach your camera to the railing on the platforms by the Falls. Those are the platforms where access is limited during peak of the season. Talk to us how we can help you avoid crowds and have the best viewing spots mostly to yourself in the height of the busy July in Brooks.
