A few people get Friday off instead of Monday. Perhaps there will be less traffic for us lucky few.

I'm told I get Friday off but I'll probably be able to take Monday instead.

Hmm. I'm off Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for PNWJAM, so I'll work one day that week. Sweet.

Here is a map to the camping area.

Depart Hwy 3 about 9KM east of Manning Park. (fill up with fuel in Hope or if you need also at Manning Park East Gate store)

This is the Placer Forest Service road. Right exit from Hwy 3 East bound.
Yes, the road in the middle of the corner/switchback.
Continue on it, over the bridge and up the hill. There will be a signed road to the right heading up hill.

Stay on this and follow it for many KM. You will get to a good Y in the road. From here you should be able to contact camp on the radio as you are now at the crest of the hill and looking down on camp.
At this Y, stay right and head downhill.
Continue on the main, and go past the old corral. You will then take a left off the main road onto a well work older road. Follow this older road to the campsite.
