    Default Best place to pick up back country camping permits

    The map on the SNP website is out of date. It still shows Panorama as a place to pick up a back country camping permit. Where are the best places to pick up a permit, especially near Thornton Gap?

    Thanks

    Lightbulb I was at Thorton Gap just last week

    And, on the drive up to the entrance station, you'll find a walk-up box with back-country permits. As you approach the pay windows, the box is just off the road on your right.
    If the box is empty (as it was for me), try to flag down any ranger (as I ended up doing).

    Is a back country permit needed if one is staying at an AT shelter in Shenandoah?

    Anyone spending one or more nights are required to obtain a BC Permit

    There is no charge for the self-registration permits. You attach one part to your gear and leave the other in the registration box.
    The trouble I have with campfires are the folks that carry a bottle in one hand and a Bible in the other.
    You never know which one is talking.
