Just returned from a "Quick Trip" to Unicoi State Park where we reserved two walk in sites for a night. Even though we had packed our tents as a backup we were delighted to find two sites next to each other with the perfect trees right on the edges of the tent pads.
Soooo we did what any hanger would do, we hung our hammocks and left the tents in the car!
After setting up, we saw a ranger come by and record our name and site numbers while eating our lunch. Pretty uneventful until we decided to turn in and the ranger walking around to make sure everyone was observing quiet time came and asked us where our tents were!! We told him we were camping in hammocks and were told that was agains the rules.....that they were a safety hazard???
He let us stay but the next morning, I read everything we got when checking in and could find no reference to hammocks being "against the rules."
Just curious, has anyone had a similar experience? Not a big deal, we usually backpack but just wondering?
