Pets are welcome for thru hikers only. this is a test run by the Wharton State Forest.

Both Buttonwood and Batona are car camps so people can just show up for the nite too. http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&gl=us&ie=UTF8&om=0&msa=0&msid=208353935963662732477.00044a0879e733a9bda1e&z=9

I might be able to get away for a night, no hiking though as time is a little tight. I might join you at the Batona camp. Is that the same place we camped for the NJ Winter Hang?

for all you local hangers Hawkins Bridge, !/2 Godfrey and Goshen will be closed this season to restore vegetation. some sites will be opened at Brenden Burn (maybe) for the season as It was closed last year.
