Lakes Basin Camping and hiking (labour day weekend)

  • Aug 30, 2013 · 2:00 PM

 

View of the butes, the hike planned for Sunday

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3 Nights camping at Lakes Basin (Friday , Saturday, Sunday)

Fee for camping and meetup $ 15 (same if you stay one night or three)

 

I did forget to note how it works, you add to the waitlist and I contact members by the time added to the waitlist, I e mailed the first 16 and waited for a check / response,

once I got the check the member got added to the yes Rsvp.

Most likely the rsvp list will show 19 going at the end, since there are some plus 1's and I will be a plus 3

 

I booked the group camp site and there will be room for 20-25.

 

Important things you want to know

 

The group site is separate from the family campsite,

 

** it has bear boxes, for food , toiletries etc storage

**potable water,

**a couple fireplaces,

**picnic benches

*** 2  pit toilets.

** Day time temp's could be 90

** night time / morning we had around 38-42 last year

***Firewood can be collected in the forest around the camp site, downed, dead wood,

**There are no showers close by, there is a small swimming hole not far from the site.

 

 

I will most likely offer 2 strenous hikes for Saturday and Sunday.

    Is it very smoky from the Rim fire?

    Hi Chris. I just noticed this trip yesterday and the waitlist was so long that I didn't bother to sign up, but a friend and I will probably go to the same general area (Saturday - Sunday only) and perhaps do similar hikes (but shorter since my friend has never done 10 miles). Maybe we'll look for you.

  • Chris J.

    Long waitlist, but little response as usual, ( e mails filtered out or / settings issue in member account) about 1/3 of the ones I contacted never responded, Wednesday morning I sent an e mail to all on the waitlist (30+) that I have at least one spot up for grabs, mabye more, for the first one(s) to reply, my in box overflowed, lol, kidding, **I got one reply** just noting that in case some are wondering why they never heard anything, if you were on the waitlist Wednesday morning around 9am, you should have rec'd the e mail, unless your settings are off, meetup e mail goes to spam...... just thought I post that for future reference,

    Hello, how does this work? Do we need to bring our own camping equipment? Also, what time do you leave on Friday?

    1 · August 24, 2013

    • Chris J.

      yes, all who are added to the yes rsvp bring their own tents, and all leave at diff times on Friday, depending on their carpool, if they have one, I be up there by noon or 1pm, setting up tent, and then off hiking / fishing and be back at camp in the evening
