Ground dwellers are always welcome! Nobody attending will have any problem with a tent. There were several tents when Kayak Karl, Syb and I went to Batona camp. It's not a hammock-only campsite!
I have a tarp, whoopie slings, tree straps, ccf blue foam pad, space blanket and even a 0* sleeping bag you can borrow. And I'm pretty optimistic we can find you a hammock to test out. Kayak Karl is at least 6'2" so he might have something you can borrow.
Batona Camp is great for driving in. You can bring everything and the kitchen sink if you want. I just wouldn't try approaching from the east (Chatsworth) unless you have a 4WD vehicle. Kayak Karl has directions from Rt. 206 coming in from the west off Carranza Rd. I think Batona Camp is less than 1000 yards from Carranza Road.
