I've never been there yet but will be doing so in the early fall.  Since 
your 50-200 is the equivalent of 400mm on a 35mm camera I'd be concerned 
whether you could effectively utilize a longer lens.  That's into the 
range where vibration and atmospheric turbulence can start to cause 
problems.  You will at least need a sturdy tripod if you're going longer 
than 200mm.

But definitely take a longer lens if you're going to take facial 
portraits of grizzlies.  :-)
