I apologize if this has been discussed before, but I could not find anything by doing a quick search. We want to camp over Labor Day. The CC we want to go to does not take advance reservations. It is close enough so one of us could go up and put a tent on it and pay for a couple of days in advance of the weekend. So should we use a tent or do you think we could leave the PUP to reserve the spot? It is a small SP. I plan on asking a ranger what they think. I like the idea of already having the pup there and all we have to do is bring our food and personal items. Then open the sweet baby up and wah-lah we are ready to camp.
