Bear box size at TM campground

Can't recall. Are the bear boxes at the TM campground 17 or 18 inches tall. My son has a cooler with wheels and I don't think it will fit.

Thanks.

I think the lockers are less than 18" tall eventhough the stated size is 18". I have a cooler w/ wheels " brand Igloo" and it measures 18" or less and didn't fit inside the Parks locker.

There are some sites (~10) that have been upgraded and they have a taller bear box, about twice the regular height.

If you ask at check in, they might be able to get you one of those sites.

Does the entire cooler have to fit in the bear box, or can the food be unloaded and the cooler left in the car?

I wouldn't leave the cooler in your car even an empty one as just the sight of a cooler might temp a bear to break in. Rather leave the cooler opened with the top jarred open out in the open. Please note that if you arrive at your campsite and your cooler is too big you can always go to the ranger station and ask to borrow a cooler to use. This happened to me, cooler too big to fit in the box, and I was able to borrow, I think I could have keeped it, a cooler that was either consficated by the rangers or left behind from a visitor.
