If we end up going there I will look you up. Still trying to deside were to go and looking over the options. I am looking so far at Bumping Lake, Merrill, this small lake on MT Adams or heading up to the Hood Canal area. All 4 I would like to hit but since this is the long weekend we will only hit one of and set up a base camp.
They had the same problem last year as well. Last year they found a host at the last minute who started a couple days later after they found him on the Friday before the long weekend. In fact I parked on top since I got there at 10AM that Friday and hiked down. After about 3 hours the gate camp host showed up and opened up the gate. At least I did not have to hike everything back up. Since I will be in a 12' boat this time I guess I will look elsewhere for some camping and fishing this weekend. I would hate to carry that big thing up that hill. Thank you all for the report I guess Merrill will have to wait for me until I am traveling solo or with others with easy to carry craft. Besides it make it easier to hit the Eastside of the mountain lake on the way back to Seattle.
