These cabinets are built into all the tables at Sunset Beach campground. They're not bear boxes, because, 1) this isn't bear country, and 2) even a newborn cub could rip these apart. I doubt they'll even keep out determined rodents. I suspect they're to hide your stuff from humans. Humans without screwdrivers. Or the ability to kick. At least the top serves as a counter. It's at a better height to use standing. By the way, someone needs to come around with the weed whacker.
