Forget about the bear scare. That is really a very minor problem. However.... getting a 30ft. camper up that mountain and down into Cataloochee Cove may be a bear of a different story. That is a pretty tight road and I hope you can handle that vehicle real well. I believe that I would get in touch with Park Headquarters and talk with them about how practical that might be, or at least see if you can find someone who has done that before. There are very few turnouts or turnarounds while you're on that gravel road section. Be safe and check this out.
