Upper Pines campsite sharing - 11/25-11/29
September 24, 2015 01:07PM
Looking to see if anyone has space for 2 grownups (1 tent, their vehicle will stay in my site) for the above dates (or know of anyone who does)? It will only be for sleeping purposes. I currently have a site with 4 of us already and need to accommodate another 4 (which by rules I can only add 2). If anyone is willing to help out it would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Hopefully I won't ruffle feathers but... If you only have 2 vehicles (park the extras in Curry Orchard lot) AND you (and any children) behave yourselves AND you don't pitch an abundance of tents AND you're kind to your neighbors, you have an excellent chance of accommodating 8 guests without a problem. Have fun!

Will only have 2 vehicles total (my parents & sisters family will also have vehicles but they are staying at Curry). It would be 3 tents (fairly large ones) but the site is very big. I thought about just doing it but if the rangers say anything its a long way back to Oregon for my unhappy friends...LOL

I understand. I have broken the "occupancy rules" many times in the Valley and there has never been a problem. We are usually out and about most of the day, quite and considerate during dinner time then most of us are off to bed before 10:00 pm. Unless someone complains about your behavior, I seriously doubt anyone cares. The campground hosts call it a day at around 5:00pm. The Ranger Vehicle patrols, after dark, are watching for the obnoxious party crowd, mondo campfires and obvious infractions. (yes, and bears behaving badly) The Rangers and NPS employees on foot (after dark) are mainly concerned with campfire restrictions (May thru September) and Bear Rule Compliance. If you don't find another site to share, I don't think they would ever throw 2 of you out. Perhaps someone else will chime in....
