We are planning on opening Rose Canyon Campground on Friday, April 3rd at 8am instead of on April 10th. This is a week earlier than originally planned. This means Rose will be open for Easter weekend!
Please do not plan on the gate being open before 8am. If the mountain gets a lot of snow and the drive into the campground is impassable, the park will not open until April 10th. Showers Point, and Whitetail will not open until April 10th. Spencer will open later in April.
