Planning on doing a backpacking trip in late May around the Gregory Bald area north of the Twentymile Ranger station in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Haven't been to that area of the park before and I want to drink the water from Moore Spring.

Where is the best info on bear activity in park?

Checking out the park's Warnings and Closures page, I see Campsite 113 (northeast/east of the Twentymile station) is already closed for bear activity.

Thanks in advance for any helpful advice on the Gregory Bald area. There are some very knowledge people who post and hang around HikingHQ.

You have probably already found the best page for checking for updated bear warnings: http://www.nps.gov/grsm/planyourvisit/temproadclose.htm

Moore Spring was running very well last time I was up there, but that was last year sometime. It normally does well though.
