It's true: Valens is a "dry" campground and that's probably for the best; it certainly cuts down on high-season rowdiness. From the couple of times I've been there though, the park staff have come around once or twice during the day to check permits, although I suspect they just want to chat about the camping sensation that is hammocking. Either way, they've always been very gracious hosts. In this, as in everything, discretion is the better part of valour.
