Ben Weston

I had some trouble finding info about this campground online. It isn't listed as a place you can make reservations for. I hate getting hassled by Rangers, so I called to get the scoop. I called the Catalina Island Conservancy and got this:

Rich: I'm trying to book a campsite, but it isn't listed on the reservations page. Can you give me some info about Ben Weston?
Rosie: Ben Weston is one of those places where if you can find it, you can camp there.
Rich: So all I need is a hiking permit then?
Rosie: Yup.
Rich: Thanks!
