Yes and no.
I have used this campground many times doing winter testing and we have had one winter hang event there as well. All of this took place behind the locked gate. However, contacting the Park Ranger Station will generally give you all the permission you need. They have never given me a hard time about it, just reminded me that I still needed to make my payment at the self-pay station. They're pretty relaxed about stuff when they know what's going on.
Has anybody made contact yet? I should be able to do so around lunchtime today if nobody else posts back here first.
