The Kenai National Wildlife Refuge has closed three campsites after a black bear damaged a tent at the Lower Ohmer campground and scratched the tent’s occupant Saturday morning.
In addition to the Lower Ohmer campground, the Upper Skilak and Engineer Lake campgrounds have been closed. Camping in hard-sided recreational vehicles is still permitted and the campgrounds are open for day use. The closest alternative spots for tent camping are Hidden Lake and Lower Skilak campgrounds. Contact the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge office at 907-262-7021 for more information.
