    I asked my son Andre Jovien to make a reservation at Stone Creek for 8/10/19.
    He mistakingly reserved campsite #SC24 which is a handicap site. My wife is disabled and has a handicap car plate as to why he thought it was ok, since they park in those spaces regularly. Only problem is that my wife is not coming with us camping. I was working at the time and and explained to him we that we can’t use that site without Mom and to change it. He then proceeded to reserve site #SC7 on 8/17/19. Is there a way somehow to get a refund for site #SC24 on 8/10/19 and also to make it available for someone who can use it. We will not be coming to Idyllwild on 8/10/19.
    Thank you,

  2. Hi,
    I have a few questions. First, is our food safe in our car we will be leaving behind while we hike ALL day up to the peak (bears or people breaking in?). Next, if we have three cars, is there an overflow lot where we could leave one car? Lastly, does site 23 have a food box?

    Thank you!
    Laura

    • Hi Laura,
      A few of the Stone Creek campsites have food storage lockers, but campsite #23 does not. There are not any bears in the area, so you don’t have to worry about them. Locking your gear/food, etc. in your car all day will be fine in terms of keeping it away from the forest creatures. Rarely have (bad) humans broken into any cars. Have a great hike up to the peak!

  3. Hello,
    Are permits required for use of propane stoves at campsites in Stone Creek? I remember camping several years back at a different campground in the area and needing a permit.
    Thanks!

    • Hi Emiko,
      We’re not sure if a permit is required for propane stoves at Stone Creek campground. Have not heard that they are and don’t think so.

  4. My sister in-law rented space 42 I was wondering if this space can accommodate my 24’ rv?

    • Hi Frank,
      You can have up to 2 vehicles and 8 people at Stone Creek campsite #42. I was not able to confirm the pad length, but it looks like a 24 foot trailer would fit with a little maneuvering and then parking the other vehicle along side.
