I've never been there, so I don't know how popular that particular spot is, and whether there are outfitters working that area. But my general rule of thumb is to get at least 1 mile from the road. Horse Thief Peak is 2 miles from the Wilderness boundary, but 5 or 6 miles from any road. That should be plenty far. One other thing, if you're camping, do not camp in the middle of a meadow or on a trail. You don't want the elk to know you are there.
