Last spring some buddies and I did fun trip to the DWG and camped at Bear Creek. The accommodations were pretty much primitive, but its still a campground with people nearby, etc... Next year I'd like to go up there, park somewhere, and do a loop on the Appalachian, overnighting at Hemlock Pond, and returning to the cars the next day. Does anyone know if overnight parking is permitted at Blue Mountain Lakes or Crater Lake if you're hiking the AT? I know that the areas are closed from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., but I'm not sure that means no parking too. I don't want to come back from a night on the trail to find that our cars have been towed/tickets issued!
Yes you can park overnight at Crater Lake. But anywhere in Stokes is a no-no (just in case you were asking) ;-)
