    So looking at itinerary we have at least 3 different big camp spots? not counting the backpacking spot

    Yep camping every night.

    Only two nights I don't have locations on are the first and last.
    If possible, I'd like to reserve us an established CG in Ouray for the last night. I reckon we should jump on reserving that but I will need to know how many confirmed vehicles we have to determine spots.

    Thursday night, the non-hiking group can decide where they'd like to stay.
    If the group is wanting more fishing, I'd suggest a state park. Ridgway State Park looks like it would work well since it is a large body of water and searches on it bring up plenty of fishing info. Also it is located between Thursday activities and Friday's meet up. Just a proposal.

    A great non-estab camp spot would also be in the pines closer to Friday's meet up, which I would choose for myself since it is nestled and has plenty of streams and side roads for exploring.

    Good questions though. I'll try to keep all the info and links coming

    If anyone needs the X for camping in, they're more than welcome to it. I'll be in a tent and even when I'm out backpacking, it's up for grabs. Fits two just fine.

    camping

    Discussion have led us to camping along S. Mineral Creek for 1st night, Monday & Tues (except backpackers), and last night.
    This will also help with those preferring some sort of fall back camp to leave things like an expensive wheeled tent behind at.

    Well I'm glad he at least painted it for the trip.

    Dispersed free camping at S. Mineral Creek
    Not too pretty, but some shade. From what I've read, we'll have plenty of neighbors.

    camping

    I checked into fire restrictions for our trip.

    We will be in 2 different jurisdictions during our stay, San Juan and Uncompahgre. As of today there are no fire restrictions in any area that we will be visiting.

    They do recommend to practice common fire safetly. So here is what the Boy Scouts advise:
    Outdoor Campfire Safety Rules
    1. Follow all rules of your campsite
    2. Clear all burnable materials from your 10-foot fire circle. Dont build the fire under overhanging branches of trees or shrubs or near roots of trees.
    3. Place fire inside a circle of rocks. Allow no one to walk inside that circle.
    4. Once a stick is placed in the fire it must STAY in the fire!
    5. NEVER leave your fire unattended. A responsible adult must be present at all times.
    6. Have a pot or bucket of water nearby in case sparks start a fire away from the fire circle.
    7. Have a bucket of sand and a shovel near the fire to extinguish it.
    8. When you are finished cooking, make sure the fire is DEAD OUT. Spread the coals and ashes and sprinkle them with water or urine. Stir and sprinkle until the site is cold. Feel it with your hand to make sure the fire is completely cold.
