    Sadly no, heck they don't even allow campfires in their "backcountry" camping where you have to hike in to the forest to get to a remote campsite.
    hmmmm, I wonder if I was allowed because I was on the team...I asked the lead biologist at the trec building and he said sure no problem.

    But definitely don't make the officer there mad, he is bad@

    they do have lots of good trees, and a healthy American chestnut! Wooo

    I know! Right adjacent to prince william fotest park is the chopowamsick back country area. No one is ever there, and there is a campsite right at the edge of the lake. There were bear tracks when I was last there so just take precaution.

    It is also a bit tricky to get back therebecause the entrance to the place is next to a military compound but park before you pass the unauthorized vehicles shall not pass sign.

    While not too exciting, try Burke Lake. There are campsites along the C&O canal/Potomac. The AT cuts through part of Loudoun on Rt 7 (Bear Den is an awesome place to hang/ view the sunset)

    That place looked cool but once again the website stated that was a part of their no hammocking rules AND they don't allow fires of any kind there. I jsut cant camp without a fire!

    Don't know if they would allow it but try t Brady Saunders in maidens. It's a scout reservation with biking trails and usually scouts camp for a few dollars.

    BULL Run is open

    Bull Run IS OPEN. We just camped there last weekend and did some long hikes on the 18 mile Bull Run/Occoquan trail. We were the only ones not in an RV, but the shooting range is close by. They start promptly at 9 and quit at exactly 5pm. We were hiking during that time, so no big deal.

    I live only a few mins from poco and id advise against trying to hang there. I couldnt get an answer on any backcountry (its small-ish, so id guess no) but their campground is set for RVs even tents look less than ideal. Im in the area and if you are up for a hang and dont mind dogs send me a message
