  1. There were road closures one on our way to Chilao another on our way back down to Big Pines. Where can current closure information be found ? Can I please get a physical address to Chilao visiting center.

    • Hi Franco,
      No physical address is available for Chilao campground, but we do have a general address on the campground page, as well as lat/long coordinates. Your best bet for current road closure status is checking the DMV website.

  2. Helena Martinez says:

    We go camping in Chilao often since it’s so close to our home in Pasadena. So beautiful over there. Just keep in mind water is not portable.

  3. CAthy Howard says:

    What time does check-in start for next week, Thursday Aug. 4th?

    Thank you
