Two-night 'loopers' on the UC?

Just askin....

My wife and I went out for a one-night camp trip on Pumphouse last weekend. We found at least two groups that had set up on Friday and were planning to float down, shuttle back up, floatg down again and park at their same spot for Saturday night. Essentially holding the spot for two nights.

We were lucky to cop a decent spot, but I was a little disappointed in the groups holding two-night spots for themselves. I thought it was one-night only on the BLM campsites.

Does anyone know?

I don't know of this rule, but will admit to being guilty of violating it if it exists. I'd much rather move camp than run shuttle again, but unless you get there Friday or get lucky you are not likely to get a decent camp the next day.

Sorry if this seems unethical. I kept the same camp from Friday afternoon through this morning. Even on Friday it was the only (BLM) open camp between Radium and Benches.

We've been victim of this as well, but there isn't a whole lot to be done about it, unless you want the BLM to step in with more reg's/fees/permits/etc. It's really no different than other 1st come/1st serve campgrounds. If it's taken, either bribe with beer to share the site, or move along. To avoid this, I try to go midweek, or get up there butt-crack early on fridays.
