Bear Resistant Food Containers
Proper food storage is REQUIRED within Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve. Using a bear resistant food container (BRFC) is an easy way to comply. You can borrow BRFCs at any park visitor center for backcountry use. BRFCs are not available at the McCarthy Road Information Station. We have a limited supply for public use. A refundable deposit is required.
Each container will fit in a standard backpacking pack and holds enough food for one person for about 5 days (more if you pack in tightly). All items with an odor must be stored in the BRFC at all times.
