I've heard of campers being snatched from their tents in campgrounds. I've pulled up in campgrounds with bear traps set up in one of the camping spots...…...Honestly, I feel a little safer away from campgrounds, in places I'm not expected to be. People are worse than bears! Bear spray(pepper spray) and a hand held air horn can be a great defense against both if needed! I have a small can of bear spray that I can wear on my wrist and I just keep the air horn close.
