Yellowstone bears and RVs

As wondering what precautions are recommended for RVers parking in the Yellowstone campgrounds like Madison and Fishing Bridge? Difficult not to have food inside. Anyone have any experience in this regard?

Lots of experience, plus, we've been to Alaska, too.. The only precaution to take around your campsite is to put away your grill locked in the truck of your car, along with a cook stove. Keep a very clean campsite/table - no dirty dishes and obviously, no food left out. Definitely do not leave a cooler out. All of the above will get checked by the rangers and hosts and you'll hear about it if you don't adhere to it. There is absolutely no worry with food inside your RV. Everyone has food in their RV. This all should not be a big worry for you. Go and have fun!!!

Thanks loads! Had visions of a bear tearing open our storage compartments which have a fair amount of food as we're full timers. All dried foods but food nonetheless.

If the bears want it they will rip the doors off. Not a major issue but it has been known to happen.
Saw a TT that a bear had torn all the siding off trying to get in.
These are rare occurances, dont let it ruin your trip. Rangers patrol the campgrounds 24/7.
