Fish Creek Bear Viewing Area

053 copy

  This short boardwalk, along a salmon spawning route, is managed by the U.S. national forest service. The railings and gates protect both the bears and the people. There’s a charge to enter so ask if the salmon are running before paying – no salmon,no bears when we visited. However the next day when we passed by after driving to Salmon glacier,a black bear and her cub were giving everyone a good photo opportunity.

  The parking lot is large loose gravel-hard to push through.The boardwalk is accessible. There are sections with heavy wire fencing instead of boards so that children and people in wheelchairs get a good view.

  Parking is only allowed in the lots. They’re large enough for RVs. Boardwalk
