We are planning a trip to Ghost Town in mid August. I've been reading, researching, etc. I couldn't help but notice all of the bear warnings for the GSMNP. I was initially looking at Deep Creek but we're not well versed on camping in bear country, i.e., food lockers. We're thinking of staying at Indian Creek Campground based a lot on the reviews here. Do we need to worry about bears in the campground? We are tent campers and drive a SUV (so no trunk to store our food). I really wanted to go check out the elk at Cataloochee one morning during our stay. I'd also like to check out Mingo Falls which I think is close to the campground. The "bear scare" kinda has me wary of wandering too far off the beaten path, which is kind of a bummer. What's realistic?
