Linus and I have been discussing a campout in the Eastern (ish) Sierra's on August 23,24,25th. The area we are looking at would be South of Lake Tahoe. In particular Markleyville was discussed, but not ratified. Ideas? 

Save the date and lets get camping spots reserved. Prefer somewhere where we can all be relatively close. Group site? Or an off grid site may be cool. Couldn't be too crazy since many of us do not have 4WD. Suggestions?

I've got some spots close to truckee in mind, off the grid, but Its almost certainly booked up. Not including the walk in spots of course. Anything around Tahoe will be plugged in, so to speak. 

I have no idea what I am doing.

Similar area one highway south (108, past Pinecrest) is Herring Creek Reservoir.  Small lake planted periodically,  even some decent creek fishing, or used to be...   I haven't been there in 6-7 years,  several interesting places up there (Trail of the Gargoyles, some places where Indians ground pine nuts (grinding depressions in the rocks).  Not sure if there were any fees for the campground.

I'll work on some other ideas as well  There is another place further up 108 I liked, big open campground too, (unimproved)

About Herring creek - 7400 ft -  currently closed (Snow?) but gets by on donations.  
Vault toilets, no water 

And some dispersed camping in the area, (I have not dug into this)

At the Pillsbury campout I was talking to I think Outlaw about the hot springs along the river up there, out of Markleyville.  Haven't been in 20 years so not familiar with current conditions or arrangements.  Might be too popular these days.  Open and dispersed all sounds good!

Not technically the "Eastern Sierra" but Dyer might be an interesting spot....or how about the White mountain region?

Edit: Please ignore, as August 23-25 is not a good time for me to go anywhere.

23-26 Aug is open for me so far.  Are we looking for Eastern or Western Sierra?  If Eastern, would something in the Mammoth area do?

I love Mammoth though slightly farther than I would like to drive. Open to it if others agree. TomMag also suggested Frenchman Lake north of Tahoe, West of Reno. Looks like lots of sites though no group sites. What do ya all think?

Frenchman is a nice area, in fact I'm headed there tomorrow for a four night stay at Spring Creek.  There are two group sites at Cottonwood on the west side of the lake but the August dates we are looking for are already taken.

Talked about it at Pillsbury: Someone spoke of a place to the east, bad memory says "burnett reservoir" which is wrong - I made happy noises about the description, maybe someone with a memory remembers that?

I think it would be less confusing and easier to keep up with this thread if there were less personal messaging that requires jumping back and forth.  Can we keep all info regarding this camp attempt on the thread side of the conversation?  Why the messaging?

Hey guys its been a while.  Ive got some great camping spots that would really make it easy for alot of people to get there. Also I was thinking we might be able to start using my family cabin and land as an annual meet.

I just realized I have a conflict with these dates...  That weekend is the Niles Antique Fleamarket which I never miss...  Huge deal; they close main street Niles and a few side streets and have it all day Sunday, but I usually do better at the adjacent Yard sales, both Sat and Sunday. 

Very torn as I also enjoy these Coleman outings...

Yeah we have a cabin up in the mountains near california pines/canby area. its about an acre or so. pleanty of room for a couple of rv's and plenty of room for tents. biggest issue would be sanitation but we could solve that with a portapotty. it has a well and good water. The other area's I was thinking about was stampede reservior or frenchmans lake just over the boarder in california. both a beautiful areas with tons of different campgrounds. I could narrow this down if you guys really want me too. I can also go up to the cabin and get the grounds cleaned up  bit and take pictures if thats a route people would be interested in.

Big Cove at Frenchman's Lake is nice, there is also a group site at Frenchman's, three different camp grounds under the umbrella of the park.  Also there is Boca/Stampede Reservoir, both of these are close enough that Jane and I could come for the weekend, maybe me on Thursday and her to follow Friday night.

Note: RV for us here.

Campsites at Frenchman Lake have reserve sites and "walkin" sites, we have never found the site "booked" in our experience, but we have avoided dates like July 4th etc. Hamshire Rocks, also with open sites, just off US 80, while close to the hwy and some noise from traffic it is really nice, easy to get to, closer to people coming in from the Sacramento route. I can't remember but bookings have to be made a week or more from the date of the stay.

That would be ideal depending on space and location.

Yeah, me too,  I'm going this weekend but its a scouting trip for the deer season so mainly poke around,  spend Friday night somewhere, then break camp and go again, scout,  find a place to shoot some test loads of the new lead-free solid copper reloads,  camp somewhere else Saturday, and scout some more before heading home...

Think gathering is pretty much called off. 

So—NO LATE SUMMER GATHERING. 

We can start a new thread for a late fall gathering if there is interest.

Definite interest in a fall trip  I just need to make sure its not when I go hunting for a week. 

Maybe I can find a suitable camp site that you guys could come up to during the hunt, but it will be up in the northern B zones (Coast range, - above Reading).  We are still deciding on exactly where.  (Some grousing about where we have been going - I got may last deer there, but we've had hot weather since and "I ain't seeing any deer!"  (dude, it's California,  I rarely see deer in season.. But get out of that Bronco once in a while...) 

There would be 4 of us for that week or at least parts of the week.  Certainly 2 of us plan for the entire week.

I will not make it  I will be out in the hot sun looking for deer in the A zone.    OK I found the bucks  I just need to get closer to them.  Found them first scouting trip.  I have a friend that has over 3000 acres that I hunt on.  My daughter and myself are the only hunters for deer this year.
