Rubicon Springs is a cool place to camp with a creek running right through the campground. There is a fee for camping and pit toilets. The caretaker, Dave Beam, is there most of the non-winter months in a little cabin (remember the Donner tragedy occurred nearby in winter). Dave can weld, make repairs, and make parts runs into town as a last resort if a Jeep is too broken to get off the trail. Nice parts runner, huh? Say hi to Dave from us!
