    There's some good info, and the site's creator is very easy to communicate with.
    Cool site. $18 for the complete Wonderland Trail Backcountry Camps bundle download is comparable to a hardcopy guidebook.

    I have personally hiked some of the wonderland and know for certain that the following sites will accommodate a hammock.

    Eagles Roost
    Cataract Valley
    Carbon River
    Mystic Camp (big trees anyone from out of the northwest make sure you have big tree straps)
    Granite Creek

    A bit off the actual Wonderland Trail
    Berkeley Park

    Richard (use the nick name for richard) Creek along that path did not have any obviously good places. It is a 2 campsite location.

    If you have good off path navigation skills you can call and ask about off trail dispersed camping areas. It is not something they advertise but there are areas along the trail that you can bushwhack to a backcountry campsite.

    See my trip report

    Our itinerary starts on September 21st. Going for 9 nights, I think. Need to doublecheck the itinerary. Are there any campsites NOT good for hanging? My hiking partner has a 2 person tent if I need to go to ground.

    Nice...

    Sounds like a few people will be out there this summer. Looking forward to hearing some feedback from ham mocking folk. I live in British Columbia and am heading down to hike the Wonderland Trail September 18-27. Just got my confirmation in the mail last week! Woo hoo!

    Planning on bringing my hammock, but with some sort of ground shelter as a backup. Don't know how much I really want to bivy with the Blackbird....

    Summer's just beginning, but I can't wait for September... Lots o good trips to be had before then, though...

    Life got in the way this season and I had to cancel my trip. Renegade I believe in on the trail now or very shortly and will have plenty I am sure. Sucks but so is life.

    Sorry to hear that Gary but I understand.
    Hopefully somebody else went and we'll get to see their pics.
