When is Miguel's Closing

Post by GWG » Sun Nov 23, 2008 6:14 am

Heading down to the gorge in early December and interested in knowing when Miguel's is planning on closing. If camping isn't available there, where would you recommend setting up for a week?

Thanks

I looked at lagolinda.com and they don't mention anything about being shut down for winter. It's real close to the southern region and is a swell place to camp.

I'm guessing Miguel closes after thanksgiving but I'm < 100%.

Excellent info for all. Didnt know we could 'homestead' out back once the season ended. Will watch for a nice spell of good weather near 60's to return if I can now.

Hey, that was my first impression but I read about how good it can be at times, so I'll watch for a stretch of 50 plus weather. Camping at 10 below is the norm for me anyway ( read, 'ice climber') so I just might take the chance this year.

I suggest LagoLinda.. quiet, peacful, free showers and close to the crags. Electric at the sites if you need it.

Anybody been to this Land of the Arches place? I checked their web out. There is a climbing cliff right on premesis, looks to be bolted too. Is it a private chunk of cliff or an extension of a known and public use climbing crag? Anybody know? I tried to call but only got a machine there today. If I learn more about it, I'll post up something. Hard to believe they could beat our simple lifestyle and sharing community in the 'outback' at Miguels.

we camped recently at the arhes site. never found the bouldering, but i blame the dark and the wine. it was pretty nice, you have to dig through some gravel to get your tent stakes in the ground, but he said he was going to be opening up the large barn for covered camping for bad weather days. Don't know what the progress on it is, but they also allow individual campfires :D

Its privately owned, but the guy is super cool :)

Its a change from mig's its quiet, but not so far away as linda's so its okay for climbing in the northern region and there is a restaurant about 3 minutes away that is going to be open all winter that serves amazing pie and cheeseburgers :D

Yeah, sounds like it could be the haven of the southern region in seasons to come. Although I doubt it will ever replace the camradarie of Miguels camp.

I pretty regularly camp other places... but nothing will ever replace Miguels. I don't imagine it will ever have to...

When does Miguel's open back up?
