DSettahr, I agree that it needs better signage. I attached a couple photos of the site. If you or anyone else happens to know the history of the camp that was there I'd love to hear about it.

I did the Whitney Loop a few weeks back starting at Round Lake and going counter clockwise. IMO, the section between Lila and Rock Pond is tough. Like you are planning to do, I did it in a day,...

I did this loop last summer as a 2 nighter. People have camped basically right on the trail as it reaches Lost Pond and there was sign of a duff fire. But that area really should not be used for...
