    My buddy and his family are obsessed with Monticello and they are planning on camping there this weekend. They usually stay on one of the islands, but I know there is a certain time of the year the islands are a no go. Does anyone know the exact dates when you can't be/camp on the islands? Also is the area by the hwy 99 ramp the only camping site or can you camp at the park on 215 also?

    Just in case this ever comes up again or if someone wanted to know....there is no camping on the islands between Apr 1 and May 15th.
