DO NOT CAMP ON DIAMOND LAKE 

Previous bear advisory (July 28) has been upgraded to a warning.

The bear(s) on Diamond Lake has become aggressive. You will probably be visited, day or night, if you camp on Diamond

With an attack on September 8 (no one injured), we recommend you DO NOT CAMP within the yellow area shown on map. 

Full account of the attack

Detail of All Encounters

Islands are not bearproof as bears are excellent swimmers so don't think an island campsite will help you avoid a visit in this area

Eat in your canoe if just passing through Diamond
Call MNR at 705-475-5550 and report any encounters.
Add your encounter to our discussions

 

Situation in Rest of Temagami

The above mentioned attack is a rare instance of a bear turning aggressive. No other areas of Temagami have had reports of aggressive bears.

There are still normal precautions you should consider taking, whenever traveling in the wild, listed under the July 28 bear advisory.
