Usually French Camp and Tuff stay open later than the others...just depends on the hosts.  Sometimes the Lake stays open later as well.

Some years ago I was going to do some cold weather camping and went to Holiday....The campground was a disaster, weeds were so tall you couldn't even figure out where the sites were.... I ended up going to Bishop and staying in a motel......I doubt it has changed and in my opinion is a waste of time to ever camp there...

Well decided to take a trip to the creek. As of today,  Tuff and French Camp are still open and there are a few campers in the campground.  There is no closing date posted for Tuff but spoke to the host at French Camp and it will close November 1, 2014. Hope this helps...

The RC Facebook page says Iris and Big Meadow will still be open this weekend. Is this not the case?

Iris and big meadow are still open, but think u need to be out by 10am Sunday. All other campgrounds are closed, including the lake.
