Info on campsites ?

Post by Fastcat » Wed Aug 08, 2018 1:14 pm

How crowded will the campsites be at Rock Harbor and 3 Mile on the arrival day (Friday) and the day before departure day (Tuesday) ? What happens if they are all occupied when we get there, where do we camp at? We are arriving Aug. 17 on the Ranger III and departing Aug. 22 .

No way to really know how crowded it will be in advance.

Personally, I have never seen zero spots available at RH, I am sure it happens though. Not being a holiday weekend and the fact that school will be back in session so no/less scout troops on the island I wouldn't stress. You may have to share a site with someone or use the group sites. If it really came down to zero sites available stop in the Ranger station and I am sure a Ranger will help you figure it out.

How many are in your group?

I think I’d feel safe that if it’s just the two of you there will be no problem getting a site on a Tuesday in late August. Don’t stress it!

You’ll be fine. Don’t stress about the minor details. It’ll work itself out. There’s always a spot or someone willing to let you share a spot.
