Lodgepole Campground - help with reservations

Hello, i am looking to book a place in Lodgepole Campground-Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Par for May 23-25 2018 but i dont understand the message on the web:

Attention: Advanced reservations are closed through June 30, 2018. Lodgepole Campground will be open for self-registration through November 28, 2017. Go to www.nps.gov/seki for more information.

What does this mean?

Many thanks

It means they may not or will not open Lodgepole Campground until July 1, 2018, so they will not accept reservations for any date in May or June.

Lodgepole campground gets a lot of snow in the winter, so its hard to predict when it will open for the summer season. They expect the campground to be open through the end of November, but on a non-reservation basis. Then the campground will close for the winter. It will reopen sometime in the spring, but they don't know when - depends on what the weather does - so they will only accept reservations from July 1 - before that, if the campground opens, it will be on a non-reservation basis.
