We hiked to Kellys Camp today to check out the spring. It is all but dry. Water was coming out of the pipe one drop at a time. It would take forever to fill a bottle.

The forest service put up a new sign at the trailhead with pictures of the Icehouse Canyon Resort.

Thanks for the water update, that may change my plans for this weekend by carrying more.
I remember having a beer at Icehouse before it burned down the last time. Sitting in the big room looking out towards what is now parking lot.....

the piped spring was dry as a bone. the other "unpiped" spring was also dry if I was looking in the right place. Ive never been sure about the exact location of the other one but I check about 30 yards up and down of Kellys camp on the gully and there was nice green clumps of grass but no water to be gathered that i could see.

We were in Kellys Camp today. The spring is bone dry. Not a drop.

Anyone happen to have more recent info than this? Hopefully some of the monsoon rains helped?
I was looking to head up FRC to Ontario and wanted to have some water for the walk down.

Thanks in advance

Thinking about hiking there next month - do you know if there's water at the camp and will it continue into April?

We were in Icehouse Canyon for the first time this year yesterday. The early season creeks/springs between Columbine and the saddle were all dry. The creek that crosses a little before the Cucamonga wilderness boundary was down to a trickle. Although we did not go as far as Kellys, I am hard pressed to think that there is much water there. Columbine and the springs near the trailhead had good flow.

I was at Kelly's Camp on Tuesday. Was able to get water from the weak, natural flow in the gully west of camp. Couldn't find the pipe, even though I've been to it several times. It looked like someone might have buried it. Anyone know what's going on with that?

I couldn't find it last time I was there either. Kind of glad to know it wasn't just me feeling very lost.

Any news this year regarding the water at Kelly's camp? I would imagine there should be plenty of water, but I'm curious if anyone's been up there recently.

I'm going to head up there next Saturday to recce the water situation before going up with my son's Boy Scout troop the weekend after. With the wet winter I would expect there to be water flow but who knows for sure. If no one else chimes in beforehand I'll post what I find by late Saturday afternoon.

Water is flowing at Kelly Camp, I was there on Friday. Filled a 32 ounce bottle in about 30 seconds. Some work has been done to clear brush around the pipe.
