We had a great evening -- it was calm and clear with temps in the mid-50's and humidity in the high-30's. I was chasing NGC objects in Perseus and Auriga most of the night. It was also pretty quiet. A few cars drove into the campground next door, but no cars came into the parking lot we were in, and I never got blasted with any white lights. The impression that I got from the ranger is that we were welcome to use that site for observing until the road to the boat ramp is re-opened. Except for the dirt surface and a little bit of light from the restrooms, it seems as good a spot as the boat ramp.
