    do you have a family camsite to reserve? and also if the camp site will be open by the week of October 25 to the first day of November. I appreciate your respond.

    • Hi Natanael,
      Bitterbrush campground is first-come, first-serve (no reservations) and is open year round. You should have no problem getting a campsite in late October although weekends will be a little busier than midweek. Dress warm!
