    Mr. Smith,
    Thank you for your inquiry regarding the use of hammocks in state parks. Our rules do not address their use but they do read "No person shall cut, destroy, or damage timber on any site, except as necessary to meet established management criteria, including insect control, public safety, and approved park construction." This being the case, the use of hammocks is not prohibited in the parks as long as they do not, in any way, damage the natural resources. Please know that your support and patronage of Louisiana State Parks are appreciated, as are efforts by our visitors to assist in our mission to maintain good stewardship of our natural resources.

    Regards,

    Kind of an old thread but one that has a lot of intrinsic value. To update for Michigan State Parks: Here's the readers digest version as told to me by three different park rangers at three different campgrounds (Grand Haven, Holland and White Pine Campground on the Au Sable River; don't damage the trees, don't impede walkways/paths, and the trees must be within your rented campground space. I didn't ask about tripods but it seems obvious that it would fine. Sent a letter off to the Michigan DNR in hopes of getting official documented proof.

    I looked at it also, and I didn't see anything about it either. I am very interest to know for sure since I live in Illinois and love to camp in Southern Illinois, especially.

    I just sent in an inquiry to Rhode Island to see whether they have made a coherent policy. Stay tuned!

    I checked the thread, but may have missed it, and checked the spreadsheet/table thingy, no mention of a KY response?
