DV Roadtrip....

Post by rca076 » Wed Mar 18, 2020 3:34 pm

I'm going to DV at the of this month. It was supposed to be a camping trip but all campgrounds are or will be closed by tomorrow. So, I guess it'll be be more like a 'one day hike' kinda thing. Let me ask, I wouldn't mind sleeping in my car for one night or two, is there any place inside the park where this is permitted? Does anyone know? Thanks!

Their website has info on backcountry camping at https://www.nps.gov/deva/planyourvisit/backcamp.htm

Where is dispersed backcountry roadside camping allowed?
"Along dirt roads at least one mile away from any paved road or "day use only" dirt road.
Camp only in previously disturbed areas and park your vehicle immediately adjacent to the roadway to minimize impact. The wilderness boundary is 50 feet from the center of most dirt roads."

So, unless you can safely travel one mile down a dirt road into an area where dispersed camping is allowed ....
