    We were just going to walk in somewhere and camp Friday then hike out and join up with the others at 1100 I'm not sure of the exact plan for Friday cause I'm new to the area. Just gonna meet between 230 and 300 in the same parking lot.

    Bullfrog; the park doesn't allow open fires, however, at the primitive camp sites there are fire rings; it's okay there. Elsewhere you need to use a stove.

    CB4; from the trail head, are you traveling east on the loop to reach the campsite? I've hiked Hawn a lot but can't for the life of me think of where you're heading.

    Thanks

    If you take the loop counterclockwise from the trailhead there is a spot between connector 1 and 2. It's not designated on the map, but its an obvious campsite.
    We can camp there or press on and go to the designated site on connector 3.
    With beauty all around you, may you walk.

    Found a link that shows all of the trails and links. It does not show the camp between connector 1 and 2 as CB4 mentioned.

    I have stayed at the site on connector 3 once before and I believe that there was a fire ring there. I have also never hiked the White Oak loop.
