I just reserved a cabin at Robb's resort for Tuesday the 17th of June. I spoke to Debbie there and it sounds like a great place to stay. They accept dogs and have a small general store and a restaurant.
We may be able to offer a room for somebody to stay, depends on the wife
If you decide to stay there tell them you are with the RS and they will try to put everyone together.
According to Debbie they are 7 miles from the trail head.
