Just got back from an extended weekend in the Great Smoky mountains.
Ticked me off sooo bad that they have closed the park.
Dang near every pull off had cones in the entry so you couldn't stop.
Why not just post a sign and say that you are own your own if you enter the park and big brother is taking a vacation also.
It really stinks to make plans months in advance and have it ruined by a bunch of bureaucrats.
A word of advice.
Plan your routes very carefully because some roads are completely closed.
The gps will guide you straight into a closed entry.
Then if cell service is bad you will have to back track to find another route.
We still had a great time but at times it was very aggrevating.

I hear you - we have a 2 week car trip set up ( can't be changed ) starting this Sunday covering the Grand Canyon and then north through all the parks, Zion, Arches, Yellowstone , Missoula and Mt Ranier. :(

Looking at reversing it going up 101 first from LAX and taking our time and then see if Ranier is open and loop down.

Pickup ForeverMap which eliminates the out of cell issue.
TomTom app does as well.

Re: BRP

I returned on Sunday from the same area. The BRP is open along with all overlooks, picnic areas and anything with a gate to a pva is locked. MT.Mitchell is open, because it is a "state" park. The traffic was very light though, no one in the way!!!!

The national news reported that at many National Parks,
folks were just parking outside, & hiking in....no Park Rangers
on duty, so no one to stop them.
