Smokey Bear Historical Park is at 118 Smokey Bear Blvd. (US 380). Exhibits and a 10-minute film trace the history of Smokey Bear and the government's efforts to combat forest fires. After surviving a devastating fire in 1950, the bear cub was found clinging to a burned tree in the Lincoln National Forest and became the national symbol for wildfire prevention. Smokey died in 1976 and is buried in the park.
