Following are campground briefs from around North America:


The Forest Service is temporarily closing Cable Cove Campground in the Nantahala National Forest after reports of an aggressive bear, WLOS-TV, Ashville, reported.

The campground is located near Robbinsville in Graham County. Forest Service personnel are working to remove the bear from the area. The campground will be reopened when the bear has been removed.


The approval or disapproval of a site plan for what could be one of the biggest redevelopment projects in the Keys may get delayed once again, Keys Net reported.

Members of the board of directors of the 22-acre Key Largo Ocean Resort former RV park at mile marker 94.8 want to postpone their appearance before the Monroe County Planning Commission from June 8 to the five-member commission’s next meeting on June 22.

The reason given is the recent death of the mother of the board’s president, Orestes Lopez-Recio. But shareholders who oppose the new site plan say they suspect the request is a delay tactic by the board because it doesn’t have all the documentation the county’s planning department requested to help with the approval process.
