So they are allowed? I am going there tonight, in the tropical storm..... Do I need to ask permission or go ahead and hang it up? Treehuggers of course.
Edit: I am going to the campground....didn't even know about the backcountry area....I'll do that next time. http://www.nps.gov/prwi/planyourvisi...trycamping.htm
The same rules apply to the campground. 1.5 inch straps and not on trees less than 6 inch in diameter.
