Anybody have any problems tent camping around the parking lot just for the night? I have my VW bus but I got some friends meeting me that were just going to pop a tent for the night. Tylerclimb

Upper pitches on Crescent Tower, Bugaboos.
I wouldn't think it would be a problem. I've slept in my truck many times there but never pitched a tent. I've never seen any NFS personnel around there? If it's not visually posted you should fine.

Tyler, on a side note; where would you park to sleep in your van around Rumbling Bald? I'm headed there this weekend a would rather not pay for camping and I don't think your suppose to sleep in your car in the parking lot. Thanks and hope someone has a bit more beta on Shortoff camping than me!

Ok thanks guys. As for the bald... across the street I camp either on the little loop or on the dead end where everyone parks when main parking lot is full. I was just parking in that new development but I heard cops are running dirt baggers off. Tylerclimb
