Look like we have 5 Update to the location: Last year we selected Camp 2 for this rally since our other camping spot at Lloyd Meadows was on full fire restrictions and the area was eventually closed due to falling trees from the drought. Last year, camp fires were only allowed at designated campgrounds like Camp 2. This year so far, it's looking good so we'd like to head back to that area with Camp 2 being a back-up. The area is located on the same Forest Route 22S82 about 17 miles north of Camp 2 and 19 miles north of Johnsondale. GPS coordinates are (36.146748,-118.490434) which is also the trail head of Freeman Creek Trail. From there, there is a pit toilet and water about 2 miles north where the road ends. Lloyd Meadows is within hiking distance to huge Sequoias, close to the Fork of the Kern trail head (if fly fishing is your thing), and there's also this tree. Also, since Lloyd Meadows is further up, it is more secluded and usually only our group camping there so no loud late night music and yelling (like last year). With all that being said, here's my thoughts... Plan A: Lloyd Meadows if the current "no fire restrictions" hold. Plan B: Camp 2 if there are fire restrictions. I will be heading out Wed Jun 28th so I will call the ranger's office before departing to get an update and will post back where to meet since there is no cell phone reception. In either case, don't forget to get your fire permits. Hopefully this change wont deter anyone from going.
