General Statistics

What Campers Are Afraid Of In the Outdoors

Here are the results:

Tent Campers:

  • 48% were most afraid of other humans
  • 8% were most afraid of ticks
  • 6% were most afraid of snakes or bears

Backpackers:

  • Ticks and Humans results were tied at 23% each
  • 9% responded they were most afraid of bears
  • 5% responded they were most afraid of being remote and injured

I asked Josh of ThruHiker whether he worried more about bears or ticks: “Technically for most trails it will always be ticks, bears I can manage by behavior…”

I personally worry more about ticks than any other wildlife. While I don’t worry about general crime at a state or national park, I do dread if a large group shows up at a campsite and plays music all night long. They are supposed to honor quiet hours but if they don’t, there’s not much you can do.

National Park Crime and Rescue Statistics

How Many Deaths In National Parks Every Year 6 Americans per week (312 per year) die in National Parks according to CNN. While this sounds high, it comes out to 8 deaths per 10 million visitors which is a remarkably low rate of death considering you are visiting the great outdoors.

source: https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/24/us/national-parks-service-deaths-per-week-trnd/index.html

What Is The Deadliest National Park

Denali National Park is the deadliest national park when you look at deaths per visitor. The extreme environment (and not bears - there has only been 1 known person killed by a bear at the park) is the leading cause of death.

source: https://www.backpacker.com/survival/the-10-most-dangerous-national-parks-in-america/

What Is The #1 Cause Of Death In National Parks

Falls are the most common cause of death. This is not surprising because people visit the parks to see the views. But the leading cause of death in a specific park depends upon the type of park. For example, Great Smokies is a popular drive-through park so car crashes cause more deaths than a place like Lake Meade where drowning is more common.

National Park Animals

How Many National Parks Have Bears

Currently 18 different national parks have bears including black, brown, grizzly, and polar.

  • Denali National Park & Preserve, Alaska
  • Katmai National Park & Preserve, Alaska
  • Glacier National Park, Montana
  • Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

  • Bering Land Bridge National Preserve, Alaska
  • Big Bend National Park, Texas
  • Yosemite National Park, California
  • Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park, California
  • Lassen National Park, California
  • Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

Note - the article I reference only mentions 13 parks but I personally saw a bear at Big Bend so I added it. You are most likely going to encounter the Big Bend bears near the visitor center. I later added 4 more parks based on information I got from a helpful Instagrammer.

While I saw bear scat in the mountains we never saw a bear on trail.

But a bear walked across the road while we wrapped up lunch in the most bad-ass display of bear I could have hoped for. It simply walked across the street while traffic stopped.

While bears should be respected, you are much more likely to be killed by a cow than a bear. 22 people a year die from cattle (see the question about wolves for more information on deadly cows) while only 1 person a year dies from a bear attack (https://petkeen.com/bear-attack-statistics/).

  • Katmai National Park, Alaska
  • Denali National Park, Alaska

source: https://www.travel-experience-live.com/best-national-parks-to-see-wolves-in-america

While seeing a wolf strikes almost as much feer as a bear encounter, wolves are not known to kill people.

As you can see in this document, cows and tractors killed more people than wolves.
