I've got this marked as a go on my calendar. I'll bring up a truckload
of firewood like last year.
Indian CREEK ?
This one? : http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/carson_city_field/blm_programs/recreation/indian_creek.html
The brochure says it typically closes mid to late September. Foiled again.
That one. Damn.
I got my springs and creeks mixed up. That one is BLM. I don't remember a gate on that road and it is paved all the way. Probably could use the site whether open or not. The office is in Carson City.
The later date works better for me so far, lets see how the weather plays out i guess.
I was there this last Sat. It's a beautiful area, great campgrounds by the second lake with fire rings. Will be cold in October, though.
I am going to be in Bridgeport tomorrow checking around. I have done some preliminary stuff on 4 and 108. Every FS campground in the Stanislaus district will be closed by 10/14. So will Kennedy Meadows (store/restaurant), Indian Creek and Turtle Rock.
If you don't mind no water or no toilet, there are campgrounds you can access, let Kiel know.
Lundy, Red, & Blue Lake campgrounds will be closed by the end of Sept. Almost anything on the east side closes by then
It's looking more and more like a state CG is going to be the
only real option.
Oh Ridge CG by June Lake in Inyo NF is open until Oct 30 and looks to have plenty of sites available. $20 a night. CG is at 7600'. Info here: http://www.recreation.gov/camping/Oh_Ridge/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&parkId=70565
It even has a semi-reasonable motorcycle policy:
In accordance with standard industry practices, Inyo Recreation will assess an additional $5 vehicle fee for the "second vehicle" in each single family campsite, and on the "third and fourth vehicle" in any double family campsite, provided these vehicles are not joined to the first vehicle by a hitch and towed onto the site. In the case of motorcycles, the first two are considered one vehicle, and the third and fourth motorcycle are also considered one vehicle.
Looks good to me. June lake Loop is a pretty area. Bring your long johns
screw that, we'll have Sally bring his pop-up trailer
--- but, is it RACCOON PROOF?
I'm wearing my helmet in my tent this year.
I came home with 4 claw marks on either side of my forehead the last year.
MF-er bitchslapped me with both hands through my tent.
well.....ItsAGS has done a LOT of footwork apparently every good campground under 6500 feet is closed on the primary weekend. Grounds over 7k feet will be COLD AS BALLS and may require traversing in snow.
I am calling Plumas NF and the Feather River Ranger Dist. tomorrow AM to determine what grounds will be open.
I should know more then and will post our event location by Thursday afternoon.
How's about this place.
It's Three Lakes which is near Buck Lake in the Plumas National Forest.
Plumas Eureka state park out of Blairsden is nice too. probably at around 6000' but lots of tree cover.
The Plumas NF ares is generally at 4-5k'. Thus we should be able to stay generally dry, warm, and have lots of options for riding dirt or street.
I called the ranger at Plumas NF and right now, only 3 grounds will remain open for sure, but more may stay open assuming there is no snow accumulation.
I will keep my eye on this site and keep track of what sites will be avail.
Plumas NF Recreation Status
Right now, no sites will have water. At all. So, we are roughing it a bit this year.
So, plan on the event taking place in the Plumas Nat'l forest. A final location will be selected based on on whats open.
The upside is that the camping will likely be FREE!!!!
