skyhawkap Also, make sure when you pay for your pass to ask for a map. It will show all trails, roads, as well as other important info.

skyhawkap There is a primative camp area on forest service road 553 just before the rocky mtn loop trail head. It has tent pads, out house and water. Howerver as said above be ready for dust.

12vtman Only been there once myself, had a blast in a pretty stock J20 my brother owned. CL isnt kidding about the dust factor, but it might not be too bad based on the rain we have been having. The camping area my Brothers Full Size Jeep club used had rest room facilities, but camping was pretty rugged, no tent pads, etc. Could be different in other areas. Post up some pictures when you get back. Been considering another trip there in my new to me Wrangler.

C.L. In that case have a blast wherever! The other 95% of the park is traversable stock to slightly modified. We stayed at Uwharrie cabins recently, which were awesome and very close to the park. As for camping, there seem to be very few guidelines at all. We did a couple "night runs" on some of the smoother trails and saw tents tossed up wherever people stopped at the end of the day. For the aforementioned reason though, I'd avoid pitching camp too close to the trails; maybe look for a flat spot 20 - 50 feet back from the main line.

-Have straps available in each vehicle in the group, and tow points front and rear. A winch in the group wouldn't hurt.
-Plan for food an water. You can pick up all the supplies you need at the big trading post by the trail head, just have a means to carry/cool/heat enough for your stay.
-Flashlights and/or aux lights on the Jeeps are a must for night wheeling or camping.
-Bring a saw/hatchet for firewood if you aren't using a camp stove, and be smart about the fires. Dig a pit for it and bury it when you are done. Don't go cutting down trees for the wood. Find dead stuff on the ground or bring in a bundle of logs.

Be prepared for a ridiculous amount of dust on the main access roads. It gets EVERYWHERE if you run topless/doorless.
