A portion of the camping facilities at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park will reopen in time for Memorial Day weekend.

"We have been working hard to get this campground open in time for summer," said C.L. Price, superintendent of the California State Parks Big Sur sector.

The scenic location, on Highway 1 approximately 25 miles south of Carmel, was closed in October after bridges were removed because of the possibility of mudslides following fires that ravaged the area.

A limited number of campsites will be available because of fire damage and continuing renovations.

Reservations can be made beginning at 8 a.m. Monday either online via the Reserve America website or by calling 1-800-444-PARK (7275).

"This is great news because we know how important this particular campground is to hundreds of families who go here every year, and we know how important this park is to the economy of the Big Sur area," Price said.

The park also has lodge accommodations for those who prefer a bed to a sleeping bag, plus a cafe and grocery store.
