DETROIT (WWJ) – An increase in black bear sightings at the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore has prompted warnings from rangers.

Park officials are urging holiday campers to keep their food put away if they visit the area in the northwestern Lower Peninsula.

Officials say there were two dozen bear-related reports last year, and this year several similar reports have already been received.

Park officials say the area around the Platte River Campground in Benzie County has been the focus of the sightings.
