Shavano/Placer Creek camping

Postby Mountainfreak4465 » Thu May 16, 2013 2:27 pm

Anybody know what the camping situation is at Placer Creek? I read an old post that said it was closed but it was from a couple of years ago. Any other good camping near the Shavano Tabeguache TH? Thanks.

There is a campground right at the trailhead. There are also plenty of places to camp along the road to the trailhead.
I'm just glad I don't live in a trailer.

Camping below the TH is limited. Most of the sites are pretty far down the road. I was up there last fall and I remember not being able to find anything off the road once you get up out of the pinion. At the TH, the road swings around to the left and there were pleanty of options up past there.
If you can't fix it with duct tape... it's broke.
