Almost every road side campsite only allows 2 cars. During spring break Johnny Ranger is much more active with his ticket book because the pickings are so ripe and juicy with money. I would strongly encourage you to look at Black Gap/Stillwell ranch and the campsites down that way. Thursday (tomorrow) is when the madness will start. Friday will mean long lines and slim pickins. Saturday you are basically screwed. To stay in the park, you will have to zone camp and hike/backpack into your spot, leaving your trucks behind. Mule ears zone, Ward springs zone, and Elephant Tusk zones are some good ones. Welcome to Spring Break! I went and looked, these sites are the only ones that let 3 cars stay: Grapevine hill #1, Loop camp #1, Solis #2, Nugent, and Hannold Draw.
Sorry, when I read " I pretty much know the National Park is booked up, but what does your camp sites look like next week?" I thought you were asking about the campsites in the NP. I don't much look at the forum people post in. Guess I should.
I called the Ranch SP and they said there would be a good chance of getting a site, but that it was already hot during the day. I'm planning on going for 3-4 nights on March 27th. This is my first trip and I really don't have an awning or a good way to make shade and I using a tent. Just building up my first overland rig (2015 JKUR) and I haven't committed to a system yet, so no roof rack, no trailer and as said, no awning. Do you guys/gals think it will be too hot for hiking and/or should I plan on just sight seeing in the Jeep on the backroads?
