Rubicon springs camping

I was looking at the web page, but don't see the cost. Most of the post about it are a year or two old and say $10 a night. Anyone know if that's still the case?

Is there an area that is better to camp in than others at the springs.

Sorry for the noob questions. I did look before posting.

$10 bucks is well worth the camping spots. Someone will come around & collect.

It might be something like $15 for one or $20 for 2 nights now. That is the RSS partner's only income from the property, and it pays the caretaker.

They do get a nice chunk from the Jamboree. But the bar bill is bigger so it's at best a wash.

Sorry for the noob questions. I did look before posting.

The amount is up for debate among the partners, last that I was told. RTF has removed the $10 amount, as requested and replaced with the URL to RSSI's website.

So my best advice...is just call and ask.

They do, but fees collected for camping are the main source of income that pays for the caretaker. JJ helps pay for other costs...from what I was told.

Due to the uneven trail & large rocks often in the way they are closing it for paving until further notice.
