Lower Alamar Camp Survey - 02-29-2016 - by Los Padres Forest Association
Link: Lower Alamar Camp
Date: 02-29-2016
Surveyor Name:Los Padres Forest Association
Camp Description:Lower Alamar Camp (aka Alamar Tin Shack) was looking great.  The table and fire ring were moved into the small meadow about a year ago and its made the camp much much nicer.  Didn't appear that anyone has stayed here since then.  Water was flowing nicely through the creek, although it had more silt in it than you'd like with no deep pools to be found.
Water Source:Flowing
Water Source Details:
Weather Conditions:HOT for February, low 80's and sunny!
