Anyone with firsthand knowledge on the status of the fire that destroyed the store and visitor center at Castolon and related closures?  Looks like Cottonwood CG is closed for now.  We’re planning to spend a few days in the Park around June 10 +/-.

No first hand knowledge here, but the Park web page has some info here:

https://www.nps.gov/bibe/planyourvisit/conditions.htm

It says you can now get to Santa Elena Canyon via Maverick Road. Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive is open all the way down to Mile 22.

I will be in the area June 12. It will be my first time to the park. I am hoping to learn a lot here and on this post also.
