On the food situation, if anyone wants to plan some kind of potluck feel free, generally seems like most bring more then they can eat and there is always enough to go around...

The plan is to get to camp on each day while its still light and enjoy camp with plenty of time for dinner and socializing. Friday is the only day we might be pushing it, I am tentatively planning to camp at homestake dry camp, which is around the race track because I remember it being a large area with room for all. But we can always pull off somewhere else if we are running behind. Lost Burro Mine is another spot...

Before you posted on the fire situation, I searched the NPS website, see link. We should discuss offline if there is concern. I plan to bring a propane pit. Must be a local ranger control thing.


Didn't know if people were aware of fees. and group size. We can discuss at Trona if concerns.

Yea saw that same thing, when I called they said without saying it explicitly, as long as we are being responsible, using fire pits, not gathering wood from the park no one will give us trouble, but yea a propane option wouldn't hurt to have on hand.

The fee part is another one of those things, I've been there tens of times and that's never come up. Probably good idea to have it just in case.

There’s a lot of confusion on fires in the park (I work for the Forest service and I’m confused) I was told no fires in the “back country” which is dispersed camping in the park. Then I asked about propane fire pits and was told those were ok. I never got clarification on solo stoves or washer drums since they do not scare the earth.
I’ll do some research and asking around.
You can pay park fees online I believe

The subjectivity of all this is on par with how obscure most public agency regulations are, speaking from direct experience as a public employee myself. Let's not over think and just roll with it, and default to asking forgiveness if necessary rather then permission.
