Thanks for the insight Hardrock.  Has anybody dared to predict the higher campground openings, still a lot of snow I've heard, but posted as 5/11.  Thanks again.

this was posted by bishop creek and big pines campgrounds today:

If you are planning on visiting our campgrounds in the Big Pine Canyon I am sorry to say they will not be open for Fishmas. We had some problem with water and they will be open in a couple of weeks.
The Bitterbrush, Big Trees, Forks, Intake 2, and Bishop Park campgrounds should be open for the fishmas. 4 Jefferies will be closed due to water problems.

Based on the snow at the main lodge last week, I'd guess about mid-June

They are going to have to clear a lot of snow if they plan on opening on the 26th..Talked to one of the host on Friday and he said the road in East Fork still has 5 feet of snow on it.. When I drove by the campground on Friday evening it looked like 90 percent of the entire campground was covered in snow..
