National Forest Camping & Bigfoot? ( 01:32:45 WedMar 19 2014 )

So which National Forest would I be camping in if I were working the Middle and Lower Klamath Claims?

In the past it has been OK to camp anywhere within any Nat'l Forest for up to 14 days. Would this be the general rule, or are there ways I can camp longer on a claim?

But most importantly when and where was the last Bigfoot sighting within 100 miles of Happy Camp. I try to avoid camping alone in their backyard, if you know what I mean. :eeekyellow:

You will be on the Klamath National Forest Joe. I'm pretty sure the 14 day rule is still in effect on these northwest national forest.

As to staying longer than 14 days on New49er claims, the write-ups on the website will tell you if they allow long term camping or not.

As to Big Foot, there have been many sightings within the Klamath and Six Rivers National Forests over the years. I don't recall any encounters in the recent past where there was a problem though. If memory serves me right, there was some equipment damage many years ago in a logging camp or two, but no harm done to the people.

I think I would prepare more for Little Foot problems.

Have fun and find some gold Joe,
Mike

I've been looking for Sasquatch ever since my first trip to the Siskiyous.
In 2009, on my way to Happy Camp, I found myself driving through Yreka at 2:00 am. I was SURE I would site Bigfoot along Hiway 96 during the wee hours but did not. Isn't Grayback Pass named after the siting of an aged Sasquatch with gray hair on its back?

Sasquatch is just a myth...a legend. Nothing more. Those sightings were my mother-in-law on her way to the outhouse!

Hey Joe, throw out a few chicken bones around camp. You will draw in something big and hairy but will not be Bigfoot. Have fun.

:devil: OK, Real funny guys. But lets get serious. How can I lure a friendly Sasquatch to my camp so I can get pictures of him with my game/trail camera. I mean, what kind of classical music would attract a herbivore vs a carnivore? :doublethumbsup:

On a camping note, I see there is some kind of paved road and paved circle leading to the river and a big gravel bar at the lower end of K-25AB (Elliot Bar). Is that a potential camping area? Looks like maybe a boat/raft access point. Are such areas generally an ill-advised place for a miner to camp?

Just wondering.

Klamath River is not like the Rogue River. Never had a problem finding a camp spot on the Klamath, and free.

I was just out to The Elliot claim last week. There is a good trail from the cul de sac (paved road from Highway) and a jeep like trail from that road to the bar where there is plenty of campsites. The problem is the jeep trail...it goes (very roughly) between two trees...I couldn't get my little cargo trailer through...it would hit the trees. I would like to access the bar across the river...but cannot get my gear to the river without packing it all.

Here's a link to the Yreka (Klamath Forest) office. Get a firewood permit for a small fee (comes with a couple of free maps that are very good), a campfire permit for that fire you will need this time of year and if you use a campstove.
And I do believe that there is a 14 day limit but check about a Notice of Intent and they might give you info to obtain an Administrative one year permit for mining on a claim.
Unfortunitly the last I heard most of the Bigfoot left the Happy Camp area after seeing what the local townsfolk did to the last one they trapped....stuffed that critter and put her on display in the center of town....as a warning to the herd I suspect!!!

mendoAu,

All needed permits have been taken care of by the club. There is absolutely no need to look into or file a notice of intent on club claims. As a matter of fact, there is no need to file a notice of intent on any claims, even your own.

Jim,

I'm aware of the rules when it comes to BLM land, kinda shaky on rules for National Forest land. Just recently a friend here in Oregon asked about extended stay beyond the 14 day limit and I informed her about mining on BLM having no limit but had to do some research on National Forest and never found info on extended stay if you are on a mining claim. Can you post a link for my records?

mendoAu,

The club takes care of any extended stay on our claims. This is negotiated between the club and the USFS.

Basically the extended stay is for the claim, not the individual, so any club member on that particular claim is entitled to extended stay privileges. You will find the information on which claims have this designation in our claims guide.
