Post climb celebration drinks with a sweet line in...
Pretty desperate for a place to stay in Lyons. Pretty sure I'm going to be camping for a few days at least. Does anybody know of areas that you could get away setting up a tent?

I realize the floods hit them hard and most legal places to camp are shut down. I'm looking for anything whether it's backcountry or established grounds. I heard you could camp at the fairgrounds at one point, is this still possible? Any info is great, thanks.

Wow thank you for the useless post. Little did you know I had already looked there and if you read more into it you'd discover tent camping is prohibited. Useful posts only please

Don't take him too seriously. He once told me that it was going to be cold the next day. As if he was the only one with access to weather forecasts. Would offer my place but 45 minutes from Lyons in zero traffic.
