Wanting to start at Fontana in a couple weeks to continue my sectioning. I have some dumb questions if someone can help.
I know its against the rules but can I use my tent at shelters? I HATE mice.
Is there anywhere to camp near/at Clingmans dome? It is quite a stretch between shelters.
Is there a privy at all shelters? If not, where does everyone crap in the mornings?

sorry for the dumb questions
Any other tips are welcome,
I found the permit app stupid. How the heck am I supposed to know exactly what shelter I will make it to? I just took my best guess.
