Estrella Camp Survey - 07-29-2016 - by Daniel
Link: Estrella Camp
Date: 07-29-2016
Surveyor Name:Daniel
Camp Description:Went up to Estrella Camp with plans to stay overnight for two nights, ended up going back to Spruce Camp due to lack of water.

There was water at Estrella, but we were hoping for the waterfall and an abundance (which Spruce had). Filtered water for a refill there and found it fairly murky and very low. Hiked up creek a ways to see if it increased, but it didn't.

Camps looked in good condition, no tables but plenty of benches, fire pits, etc. 
Water Source:Flowing
Water Source Details:Flowing slowly, very low, no waterfall.
Weather Conditions:70-80 during the peak of day
