Overview of Site: 

Cabin Flat Campground is open year-round. However, it is hike-in only from early-November to late-April through June due to seasonal closures of Blue Ridge Road (Forest Service Road 3N06). However, the road between Lupine and Cabin Flat is severely overgrown and very hard to follow to get to this campground. No maintenance of facilities will happen until the road reopens.
