I am planning a few hikes through the Dolomites this fall, due to my class schedules I am not able to get there till the last week in October. I understand that alot if not all of the higher altitude huts will be closed down. Is there camp sites near these rifugios? I have read that camping is not allowed but I have been unable to find any "legal" campsites high in the mountains. I have also read that there are winter huts open for shelter but do not have any food or other luxuries. Is this correct? Any help on these or other issues would be much appreciated.
