A lightning strike knocked out the electricity in Mingus Campgound late in the 2012 camping season. Repairs will be extensive and are not expected to be complete until late summer or early autumn of 2013.

Campsites are currently available at the reduced rate of $10.00/night in E-Loop, and $6.00/night in the tent loops. Extra vehicles are $5.00/night.
