Q: Why does Status say "Open" but then in description it reads "It is closed from 11/15 to 6/15 every year regardless of conditions". Can you confirm what the status is?

Q: Curious what the camping is like? Would a 14' popup trailer be able to get into some of these spots? How busy is the camping? Would someone be able to find a spot on a Friday evening or Saturday typically?
