I re-looked up where I found that mention: it is not on SGWA site. It is a comment that I mis-read on the USDA website. The comment is:
Dollar Lake Saddle (9,960’-no camping here, no water) is located 0.7 miles beyond Dollar Lake. From the saddle, it is 5 miles to the summit. One popular campsite accessible from Dollar Lake Saddle is Red Rock Flat (10,100’,) ¼ mile west of the saddle. High Meadow Springs (10,400’) is ½ mile further with water available for both camps.
I mis-read the final sentence as “with water available AT both camps”.
Sorry for confusion. thanks for clearing it up.
If you were doing my route, would you camp at high meadows, red rock, or at dollar lake?
