we wanted to camp out at council bluff the weekend of april 17 and ride the surrounding trails. does anyone know if the campgounds are open already? (can't remember if they are seasonal). if they arent open, is there another place to camp around there?

we are used to primitive conditions.

thanks!

The site isn't very clear about weather it is open (may 1?): http://www.fs.fed.us...ncil_bluff_rec/ That said, there are some primitive sites at Berryman campground (http://www.fs.fed.us..._area/index.php). Site says there are only like 8 sites. Bass resort (farther up Hwy 8) would also have camping. Not sure about others?

Campgrounds are OPEN!! The site says May 1, but the gates are open, and Chris and Jen are collecting camping fees. We camped there last weekend. Water is ON also. FYI, From the OTA site, it looks like this weekend has some prescribed burns going on, which will close the lake loop, and surrounding trail. We are headed to Berryman this weekend.

Camped there last night. Just got home. The controlled burns were a pain, didn't know about them. The lake trail is in really good shape. There is a lot of dead-fall on the trail. Our group cleared a lot of the little stuff, but someone just needs to hike the whole trail with a chain-saw. Something down every couple hundred yards almost. The beach didn't look open yet, but the campgrounds had open outhouses and water on. Have fun. Cameron
