We didn't. We just got there, was late in day, saw a nice sandy beach where previous people had camped, found a good source of water, looked at the trail ahead, and decided to stay. No regrets, no noisy neighbours, just the occasional late hiker pushing through to Cribbs. You can see Dare Beach on the WCT map and make out the creek at Km40. We had 35*+ dry weather all week and the creek had decent water in it still.
To be honest, aside from Thrasher we always had the option of camping a bit away from everyone. Tsusiat Falls and Michigan Creek we had neighbours close but still enough space that we weren't crowded, and all other stops we were able to set up in secluded spots.
