Did this from Tahoe City to Brockway Summit as our groups first overnight trip. Watson Lake is the only real water source on this section. We were lucky enough to not encounter too unruly car campers at Watson Lake, unlike some other reviewers on other sites. Watson Lake sites have bear boxes in case your not wanting to bring a bear cannister on this section. Overall, great trip with great views!
