I wrote something that was confusing in my previous post ...
The gate is locked at 6 PM in the winter, and locked at 8 PM in the
spring and fall, and at 9 PM from June to August. The gate is unlocked
at 8 AM all year.
For details about the park, visit
http://www.ncparks.gov/Visit/parks/memo/main.php. There is a map
there, as well as an explanation of the fees (for camping) and and hours
of operation. There is also a page for forms and permits (just to tie
this to the other discussion we are having) and I've been told by Allen
that if CHAOS members visited without him being there, it might be best
to get a special-use permit for our group from the ranger or park
superintendent. The main reason for this is not to limit who can go
there to observe ... instead, there is a clause on the permit releasing
the park and state from liability in case something happens. Again ...
the litigious society. Since I've always been there with Allen, I'm
covered under his permit.
But if you go there and camp, you would not need the permit. You've
paid to use the park, and you can observe however you like.
