  1. Karen McGovern says:

    Is this campsite permanently closed? We love it there.

    • Hi Karen,
      Arroyo Seco Campground remains closed because roads in the area are still damaged/closed from last year’s storms. The forest service does not provide any date on when the roads/campground may be open again. As a result the campground is ‘closed until further notice’.
