The trail near the split to Eagle Spring isn't real appealing for a base camp. It's barren of trees and you're exposed to the wind. Much of the trail south of Bennett Peak is along a ridge line, with poor opportunity for a decent camp. Remember, there's no water up there. You have to pack it in. I've camped up there 3 times, always in Arcane Meadows. We camped two nights, and each person carried two gallons of water (plus Jack Daniels), which we had to closely manage.
