The town of Cerro Gordo has been occupied for some time.  During our 1983 visit, we were told by the only occupant that he was a guard for the mining company that would soon be working the area.  Our next visit in 1990 revealed that Cerro Gordo was still occupied and that long term plans included making the area a tourist ghost town.  As far as we know, camping is not permitted.  We do not recommend camping at the hot spring between the bottom of Cerro Gordo road and Highway 395.
