Where to stay Tuesday night
 
We hit the Rubicon Trail on Wednesday morning. Where should we all stay on Tuesday night? I will post up some options that have been discussed on the thread on Mud. Please post up additional options. We should make a decision and get some reservations soon.

Sometimes you can go play around on the areas close by and get a taste of the trail.

Option 1: Camping. We'd be right by the trailhead if we camp here. We could also camp somewhere else.

Fill up with gas before you hit Ice House road if possible to save some money. If you are doing the Wednesday Run, there will be others of us staying at Ice House Tuesday Night.

Option 2: Ice House Resort. I think this is a great idea! Plus, only 30 minutes to the trailhead.

Be sure to fill up in Pollock Pines the night before as the gas is much cheaper...make that less expensive.

Option 3: Pollock Pines.
Sounds like this is about 1:15 to the trailhead -- still acceptably close, IMO.

Wouldn't mind a bed the night before 4 days of camping. I'd split a room with someone.

This sounds great but the info I found (here) would lend one to believe that we would most likely be camping...I can only imagine this place fills up fast and it has limited room (i.e. might barely only fit our group :hill:)

RV Hookups, $30.00/night (4 people) $400.00/month (4 people).
32 Campground sites at the Ice House Resort: Fee, $15.00/night (4 people - additional people $2 each).
Group campsite: Fee, $150.00/night (50 people).
Five Motel rooms: $71.50 ~ $88.00 a night.

"Robb's Valley Resort, near the Rubicon Trail, where recreation can be found, on Ice House Road in El Dorado County. Rent recreational equipment, ski boats, wave runners, pontoon boats, cabins."

Plus it is the closest thing to the trail.
