Tripping in La V. leaves room for exploration. The staff can try to give you an up to date report (and the staff was very helpful), but some sites they thought were gone due to logging, were in fact there, and some sites they thought would be there were gone (due to microbursts the previous year, fire, erosion, or trashing from partiers) and some site that they said had been moved, in fact had just become so grown over you could not camp on them, and the new "site" was in fact camping on the trail. The route we were on had a loooooooong way between sites as well.

The only group we met on the trip did not in fact had a permit, and arrived at our site wind bound (but they insisted on camping on the beach rather than on the site)

The rule of La V. is that you can take whatever time you want to do the route (just pay for it), but you must change sites every night. How they would know if you did or not is up for speculation.
All of it just added to a great adventure.

If you take a dog, please keep an eye on it. Over the years I've seen several sad requests for information on message boards about people looking for lost dogs in the park. Also once saw a poor lab retriever on Circuit 70 with a face full of porcupine quills. Owner said it happened two days earlier and was on his way to the vet.
