Does anyone know if Rock Creek lake has started to thaw out yet?  Are the roads open yet?  Do we anticipate the campgrounds all being open by Memorial weekend in the Rock Creek area?  Thanks for any input you can provide.

Cheers,
Tony

I saw a video of the lake on facebook from may 7.. the lake was mostly thawed out then..  I tried to steal it to post here, but that is beyond my computer skills:)

I know French camp is already open, I haven't seen any updates on the rest.

The road is open to the Pack Station, you can get to the boat docks, but not the upper end of the lake, at least as of noon today. Campgrounds are open up to East Fork. Rock Creek Lake is free of ice.
It just started snowing.....

According to the US Forrest Service, Pine Grove Campground is open.  Pine Grove Campground sites are first-come, first-served.
