  3. Charles Butler says:

    Good morning, is Monte Cristo Campground open?, and how many campsites are available?

    • Hi Charles,
      Monte Cristo Campground is open. It has 19 first-come, first-serve campsites. We’re not ‘on site’ so not sure about availability but it should have some campsites open over the weekend, and mostly open midweek.

  4. How would I pay the fee? Would it be a good place to stay for hunting surrounding areas? D11.

  5. Is Monte Cristo Campground open?
