Within hours of the reservation system going back online June 5, spots at the coveted Leo Carrillo State Park campgrounds were being swooped up by campers.
Leo Carrillo State Park, along with nearby Malibu Creek, officially opens today after being shut down for seven months following the devastating Woolsey Fire.
The campgrounds re-opened briefly for Memorial Day weekend before shutting down again for final improvements. But starting today after massive cleanup efforts, they will be up and running for good.
At Leo Carrillo, the center row of campgrounds were mostly untouched, with much of the devastation contained to the surrounding brush on the hillsides. The group campground at Leo Carrillo was destroyed and rebuilt. More damage occurred at Malibu Creek State Park, where 75 percent of the campgrounds and much of the 8,000 acres burned.
