According to my source open campfires are a NO GO. Propane should be good provided you have a valid Campfire Permit. For what's it's worth I have an extra one that I'm willing to give to someone for FREE, you just have to come and get it cause I don't deliver.

Since it appears we may be restricted from a wood campfire, I am thinking of getting a propane fire pit. Anyone have experience with these and how long they last on a 20lb tank? Tried to find one on Amazon and cant get one delivered until next week. Walmart has one that can be delivered tomorrow, if I order now. Any thoughts?

From what I understand, a propane fire pit might be okay because there is no wood or charcoal in play and it has a shutoff valve to immediately extinguish the flame. The addition of a small cook grate would technically make it a propane stove/grill. If we could do just this to keep that element of fun for the kids it would be worth it.

I'm packed, ready to go. Probably on the 15 north near scripts poway along with Carl by 7:30-8:00. Will try to catch up with the rest of the group by Kramer junction or Bishop. Will be monitoring ham and frs.

looking forward to a trip report. I can't go up this weekend but am headed up there the following.

Yeah... About that... My trip to Mono Hot Springs next weekend in the high sierra is almost certainly cancelled due to fires and the now the USFS has effectively closed all of the National Forests in the state... and no ignition sources of any kind including gas stoves! Hopefully the smoke hasn't been too bad for the gang at Coyote Flats.

wind changed and the smoke up at Coyote Flat was bad. We had to leave, as well everyone in our area left early.
Hopefully your group had a good time.
Too many campers up there, seemed like some stayed though.

Phenomenal trip. Weather was amazing. Saturday smoke rolled in and everyone seemed to leave Sunday. We had our camping spot to ourselves Sunday / Monday.

I dont think crowds were an issue at all. That place is so expansive.

What rig were you in? Curious if we saw you. We stayed and had a blast.
