Ground wire in conduit

Is it ok to run a bare copper ground in PVC conduit? We're running #2 THHN (# 6 ground) in PVC to a detached garage for a 100 amp panel, and I wasn't sure if bare copper was acceptable for the ground in the conduit or not. I assume it is since our hot tub was wired that way and passed the inspection, but figured I'd check anyway.
