Thanks TCC!!!! Driving up to check it out this Sunday-Monday of July 4th weekend, but the Thompson's Lake campground is booked up. Does anyone have beta on another campground or any wild camping options in the area? Or, anyone feel like letting me and my friend pitch our tent in your site (or backyard...) Sunday night, if we kick in some cold beers and half the cost of the site?

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
