SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Blackhawk Campground in the Uinta national forest has reopened after being closed because of bear sightings.
The closure came after the mauling death of 11-year-old Samuel Ives from his tent June 17th at an American Fork Canyon camp.
Uinta officials closed the Blackhawk Campground because of a nuisance bear that tried to get into a garbage bin.
That activity by the bear has stopped, but the Forest Service is asking campers to take precautions so bears won't come near them.
