Camping Alone
« on: June 19, 2013, 08:57:16 PM »
Hello there: I am going camping and hiking by myself to Rock Creek Lake -  :tent:  I have never been to this campground, is it considered a fairly safe one (aside from the regular bears and other beastly beasts)  for camping by oneself? I may be taking my 110 lb. dog, but have not decided yet. Any recommendations or comments from women who have done the same?

Thanks!

WW

i have camped in east fork by myself... while i have known others that were in other sites at the same time, i had my site to myself.    with that, i would say GO FOR IT!   

i have found the campgrounds to be mainly full of families, retired folks, and hardcore fisher folk..  all full of good mornings each day. 

introduce yourself to the camp host, and i am sure they will take an extra swing by your site just to check in and say hi.

i know mimi from this board camps there by herself often, and i have never heard of one issue from her.  if it were closer to me, i would camp there more often as well. 
Hardrock, may his spirit live on in all of us.....

Thanks for the information, Little Hardrock, this is helpful.

Do you know what time of day there is a good chance of getting a walk-in site (mid-week)? I'd imagine right around check out time in the afternoon. Any suggestions?

I am with Little Hardrock Go For It ! Although I have not camped there by myself I have seen,met several women camping alone while there with my family ... it always impresses me  :bowdown: I personally would camp at one of the lower campgrounds ,the lake would be my last choice but that is my Personnel preference.  :camping:  I would try
