Campsites around Rae Lakes

Postby dbogey » Fri Aug 07, 2015 9:45 am

Trying to finalize some campsites so I can have them on my map. I'll be in the Rae Lakes area next week and was looking for sites that the HST people may reccommend. I'll have a 10x10 Pyramid tarp for the two of us. I'd like to get up into the Dragon lake area and there looks to be some nice flat spots by the look of the contour lines here . This would be on the left heading up to Dragon Lake. Our second night will be 60 Lakes Basin.

If anyone is out next week, the metor showers should be a real treat.

No help with the campsites, but I am interested in others replies as I'll be up there on the 18th and 19th.

I will be at Cedar Grove on Saturday and Sunday and hope to see some good Perseid action!

There are sites all along the lakes western end, you will have no problem finding a spot for your tent.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
