Some good friends and I went on this trip to do some 4x4 car camping at a fairly isolated lake. The first time we came to this location, we did it as a backpacking trip where we parked on the western side of the canyon about five miles upstream (south) of the lake, hiked down to the canoyon bottom, and followed the canyon north to the lakes southern end. We stayed two nights that trip, and while we were there, realized it would make for a nice car camping trip. For this trip we chose to camp on the east side of the canyon near the southern end of the lake. The location we chose was where the main trail down on the east side comes up. As far as I know, it's really the only trail on the east side that goes down to the lake bottom. To get there, we took FR99 from the 260 on the Rim, then at +34
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
