    Clear springs in Mississippi

    I know hammocks aren't allowed in Miss State parks. This is in a national forrest I think. Are hammocks allowed here?

    Clear springs in Mississippi

    I feel sure they are if u r in the woods. Or r u in a developed camp ground ? I have hammock camped many times in Trace State Park, Tishomingo state park and Piney Grove often with no hassles.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    +1 on what Billy said. If it's a national park, you're good to go. Most will want you to camp in designated campsites but so long as you are using tree huggers it's all good.


    Just curious, where you heading to?

    Happy hanging.

    But thine are whole; can he have followed far
    Who hast no wound or scar?

    Its a national forrest not a park. Although that may not make a difference. Clear Springs is Meadville Mississippi.

    Is it this spot?

    You could call Fred and Suzy, the campground hosts, and ask.

    You always have to make a decision: Do I ask, or just go for it? Because if you just go for it, someone may- or may not- ask you not to hang from their trees. If you ask though, they may scratch there heads for a minute and then just do the safe thing and say no. For example, I have not ever asked at the MS state and National Forest camps I mentioned, and so far no one has objected. One time at Trace a worker came up on a cold morning to ask me if I had slept in that thing the night before, amazed. But I guess if you wanted to be safe you could ask, and maybe explain about tree huggers. But I think I will continue to not ask.

    I like your style Billybob. Forgiveness is much easier to ask for than permission.

    +1 on what Billy said. This place looks interesting. Have you found any trail maps that you can share? May want to take the boy down to this place.

    Here in North Carolina when I camp at a state park and they ask if I am a tenter or an RV'er, I tell them I am using a hammock and they mark down tent.
