    Unfortunately, the hearty "camper's breakfast" won't be on the new menu either. Blackberry shakes and the frozen blackberry ice cream pie will still be available (Yeah!).
    FYI, I'm camping at Big Meadows now and the wayside doesn't look close to opening. Ranger thought it might still be a few weeks. He said that either Loft or Lewis (can't remember which) camp store should be open.

    Per their Facebook post yesterday:

    It's good news/bad news once again. We were able to clear another section of Skyline Drive, so it is open from mile 0 to mile 80. However, we must delay opening of Loft Campground and Dundo Campground to May 14. Reservation holders are being contacted with options to move to Mathews Arm or refunds.
