Isn't there a huge oveflow parking/camping area about 50 yards past the TH? I was assuming he didn't want to sleep on the trail itself.

Maybe so. Don't know because I didn't look. I just know there is a new parking lot there that has a new sign posted for "No Camping or Campfires at Trailhead."

Some of us did sleep on the side road I believe you are talking about, so maybe it is legal to camp there.

We camped in National Forest about a 1/2 mile from the Shavano trailhead. You can also camp at Pikes if you take the Crags route. No camping in Manitou Springs that I know of, but there is a homeless colony around the north side.
