The following morning they were giving each other wake up calls with smaller firecrackers. Speaking with other campers, this went on for 3 nights. One couple that had been tripping there for 25 years was forced to leave. From what I gather , a Ranger finally read them the riot act. The sad part is that resources had to be pulled from a missing persons search in the area to scold these children.
I probably will get s lot of flack for this but anytime there is public access to anywhere you invite this kind. I am not in favor of the state continuing to buy up this pristine properties but leaving it in private hands until they come up with the resources to deal with it.
