Cannibal.... The forests are open to dispersed camping for the most part. For the most part you would want to avoid the State Park Campsites like the plague..... There are two entities to deal with in PA... State Parks and State Forests. Both fall under Dept of Conservation of Natural Resources but the two divisions function very differently. You want the forests and they would be most happy to accommodate you.
I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

Yeah, that's the same way it is out here with the Parks. I guess the issue is the State Parks see more usage by 'party campers', the Forests are usually reserved for the more, ummmm, hardy folk. Someday we will have hammock posts at every campsite; this I vow!
I'll have a place to stay once I get to the Outer Banks. Hopefully with two trees 15 feet apart!One thing to take into consideration on the Outer Banks. There aren't a whole lot of large trees for hanging. Mostly small scrub oaks. You may get lucky and find something, though.
from a county, state or federal campground due to using a hammock AND while using tree huggers and otherwise in compliance?

And all I wanted to do was get away from it all...back to nature. Didn't know I'd need to bring my lawyer with me.
The idea of bringing a hammock stand complicates things enough that I'd just use my tent. OK...I said it...don't have to keep that little secret inside any longer.
