We hiked up Le Conte early in the morning and came to the Lodge. You need a reservation to stay at one of the shelters and they fill up very quickly on opening day. The people working up there were very informative. We were planning on back country camping but there really is no other place to stay than the shelters available at the summit of LeConte. It is very ridge like so not many makeshift sites. Gorgeous views and many misty snapshots.
