    PWF Looks Promising

    Here's the reply from my questions. There is a fee for using the camp sites.

    Martin,

    Yes, the regulation for hammock camping is included in the 2013 park compendium that can be found at http://www.nps.gov/prwi/parkmgmt/upl...an-version.pdf on page 20.

    Are you talking about 100+ people or campsites? Our group camping area (Turkey Run Campground) is open year-round and can accommodate well over 100 campers, but must be rented on-line at www.recreation.gov . You can also make reservations for individual campsites that hold up to six people in Oakridge campground - also reservable on www.recreation.gov

    Please call the visitor center at 703.221.7181 for further information about the camping options at Prince William Forest Park.

    Have a wonderful week!

    Prince William

    The regulations say tents only at group campsites and a maximum of two hammocks per site at the other campgrounds. This doesn't sound very promising, but communicating ahead of time should be helping to educate them about the hammock camping community, even if this is not the year to try to comply with their regulations. You never know. It also sounds as if the superintendent has the authority to say what's what.

    Yes, what WV said. See if they have any problems with accommodating 100 hangers for long weekend. If not this year, maybe another year. If not MAHHA, maybe another hang event. Still sounds like a promising site. Is there a covered pavilion anywhere that can be rented?

    Do we have a POC at Pine Grove Furnace that I could put them in touch with? I think that if they heard how well behaved our group is and the potential monetary contribution we could make to the park, they would be accommodating.

    ZQ & 2Q have contacts for Pine Grove. You can shoot them a private message for info. Please hold off on contacting Prince William for right now. We're looking into another alternative at the moment. Thanks for the help!

    Meaning, the Pine Grove Furnace people telling the PWNF people how great we are and that they should let us have our fall hang at PWNF.
