Some splitters are gonna spend Memorial weekend camping out in LVNP with the twin goals of having a fun little end-of-season reunion/party and shuttling *assen Peak as many times as humanly possible.
We're thinking of getting some campsites at the Manzanita Lake Campground which is by a beautful lake with swimming and hiking, etc. This isn't a hardcore backcountry experience... just mellow car camping and hanging out. My beautiful wife is coming along, so bring your family and friends so she has someone to hang out with!!
The campsite is off the main park road, which is scheduled to open for Memorial Weekend. We'll use the road to shuttle *assen Peak. 2000' of climbing from the top of the road will buy you a 4000' descent down the NE face, which ain't too shabby.
Anyone else interested?
Edit to change campground. Summit Lake North won't be open.
Ooops... I assumed incorrectly that the Summit Lake North campground would open along with the road memorial weekend. It won't. We'll have to move these activities to the appetizingly named Manzanita Lake Campground.
