I have seen a few posts recently decrying the "lack of backpacking facilities". I do not know what those could be--for me, as long as I could walk somewhere and pitch a tent in peace and have a view--those wewre "facilities" enough. There are any number of places that will accommodate backpackers in somewhat rustic facilities--but if you are willing to do it in a tent--why not try a cabin? Use it as a base camp. Remember, there are very few "parks" comparable to our national or state park system--the land is really used intensely--but there are plenty of beaten paths, open pasture land and forests to blaze a trail for yourself. Just ask the natives where you go. Check out the following site for a possible place to stay.
(I have not been there personally, but it certainly has appeal for those of you seeking an alternative to what have been described as pricey spots. It is located in a rural area where the concept of ripping tourists off has not been refined--or if it has--the price is considerably lower. Enjoy!
